Imitate logged-in patron for local testing

Hi! I try to modify our theme for display content of posts only for patrons included Posts name and another. I try to do it on local dev server. Can I set any variables like a patron logged-in, it needed for design tests?

Thank you.

Since im onboard a train i cant point you out to the exact function, but there should be various examples in the forum where the function which the plugin uses for checking if patrons are logged in is used. Better would be to check for patronage level, since it would include both. This function can constantly be used since it caches its result and doesnt repeatedly contact the API. Ie, you dont need to set a var, just call the function anytime you need that status.

returns you the


static var which holds user’s patron status.


would return you the


var, which holds the current user’s pledge amount. The latter implies the former so its better to use the latter one.
