CB Paid Subscriptions (CBSubs GPL) 4.6.1 is a features and maintenance release that is a recommended upgrade for all sites.

CBSubs 4.6.1 includes one major new CBSubs Options plugin, 1 new feature, an improved payment service provider gateway and 3 minor bug fixes. Main new items are:

  • CBSubs Options plugin allows to propose various duration and price possibilities for user subscription plans. It also allows to offer various options to membership subscriptions or to merchandise products. This allows to offer options to users while selecting their plan or product, and then to manage them right from their user profile.

    Letting users choose their subscription duration and corresponding price is a major help to users, and thus to sales volume,

    Letting users add options to their subscription plans and merchandises and then to manage them allows to offer and sell added value services and options seamlessly right within the product/subscription plan, which is beneficial to users and to the average sale price.

    Kyle has a detailed blog with many screenshots about this new CBSubs Options plugin.
  • User Subscription plans have now an Allow Login setting (default is on), which is available when the "Allow Free Registered Users (without subscriptions)" global setting is set to No. This allows to control in a fine-grained way which plans cannot provide login, and to accordingly propose possible re-activations when a user with expired plans attempts to login.
