This problem has been around for a long time, and so has it’s fix. See for the solution to this and the “undefined index” in problem. A recent response from the s2Member support team misses the point (see This is NOT a matter of being incompatible with WP_DEBUG, it has to do with an improperly set variable and inaccurate coding.

Setting WP_DEBUG to false is NOT the answer. I need that on for debugging other facets of the site. Having the notices about this plugin persist from upgrade to upgrade is very annoying indeed. I have no incentive to want to upgrade to the pro version of the plugin if this is how coding problems are handled. In fact, I’m auditioning other membership plugins whose responsiveness to known coding problems is faster than the greater than six months that this problem has existed.

I just updated to all the latest framework and pro plugins, but these error messages persists. Please add these fixes.

I agree with @RobertLilly — according to those pages, these minor fixes should have been remedied last year!! It’s generally bad practice to call a variable without checking for its existence. Additionally, how hard can it be to supress the warnings to any potentially undeclared variable with the “@” error control operator?

The main reason why I expect these issues to be fixed, besides being a paying subscriber, is to prevent the layout from breaking. I have DEBUG turned on to see errors in my code for theme and plugin development, not a plugin’s code. While trying to develop a theme that makes use of this plugin, it’s hard to debug properly–javascript sometimes breaks when the DEBUG messages show up.

Please provide a minor fix as soon as possible.

Is this not fixed yet? Please, we cant use bad or sloppy code in our installs by company policy.

I’ll bring this post to Jason’s attention so that he can review this again. :)

He got back to me with confirmation that this is not gonna be in s2Member yet.

It is gonna be fixed in the next generation of s2Member but not for now.
