Feature Request: Lifetime Rewards unlock


Hello, I was asking about the feature via the Patreon Pro support ticket system and after some back and forth they asked if I would post it here. Their feeling was it was better handled here than there.

This is the situation I would like to setup with the Patreon (Pro?) plugin.

I was wondering about the way the lifetime pledge amount works. In short my question is can I setup this exact situation below:

A. Lifetime pledge of $100 dollars (example amount)
B. Is also a CURRENT patron

A. Lifetime pledge of $100 dollars (example amount)
B. Is NOT A CURRENT patron

Is the above situation possible? I see variations that seem to grant lifetime pledges super access at ANY but don’t see an example for making the above a case.

Right now the lifetime pledge overrides all and I was wondering if that override could be turned off so it could work in conjunction with other features instead of ignoring them. The idea here is I can setup a situation where longtime lifetime Patreons still contributing rank a little higher than someone who is not even on the Patreon anymore.

Does this make sense?

Thank you!

PS and for the record I was having this conversation via the Patreon Pro Support ticket system and they suggested I move it here.


Yes, because these relevant features are Patreon WordPress features, this forum is more proper for this feature request.

I will bring this thread to the attention of the team.
