How to Move from WooCommerce Wishlist Member Integration Plugin to Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus
August 2, 2015 4 Comments
Recently, WooThemes have announced they have discontinued selling their plugin “WooCommerce Wishlist Member Integration” and they will also stop supporting anyone who has already bought this plugin and has it on his website.
If you are using the WooThemes plugin for Wishlist Member it means that every new WordPress version / Wishlist Member / WooCommerce versions has the potential to break this integration as no future adaption will be done to the code.
Because most of the Wishlist Member integration with WooCommerce is done behind the scenes, you will probably not even know a problem exists until one of your customers will report to you about it.
This has raised many questions among people who want to move from using WooThemes plugin to using Wishlist Member WooCommerce Plus developed by our team of developers at HappyPlugins
