I’ve put the Patreon Plugin on a brand new, clean Wordpress site, to avoid potential plugin conflicts.
When a Patron tries to open a protected page for the very first time (no Wordpress user created yet) they are shown this page:
When they click Unlock with Patreon, they are delivered the following page:
Because they are already Patrons, this is confusing. Why can’t existing Patrons simply be presented with a Login page rather than a SignUp page?
Anyway, even if they select Login from the top right-hand corner and Log in, they are presented with the Join page:
This is very confusing, because they are already a Patron. There is no obvious path to view the requested page.
If they manually enter the original page URL they were trying to visit, they are then presented with this page:
They should click “Allow” (this is very unclear!) and finally they can see the protected page content.
(This has also created them as a Wordpress user on the site and login is easier from here.)
Is this how it should work?
I would expect that the process should be:
1.Unlock with Patreon
2. Enter their Patreon username + password
3. Agree to the OAuth login (where can that text be changed?)
4. Then view the Protected Page.
The Join page is misleading because they have already logged in to Patreon, and are visiting the protected page because as existing Patrons they have been provided with this URL. All of my visitors will already be Patrons.
Thanks for your help.
