I have a Patreon page that is being pirated by kemono.party’s Patreon Downloader. Basically one of my patrons gave his log in credentials to the site and they now have free access to all of that patron’s rewards. This has been an ongoing problem that the Patreon staff cannot or will not address.
So what I want to do is host the rewards on my Wix website, and have those rewards only be accessible to the correct patrons. Unlike Wordpress, there is no Patreon Connect app that I can use on the Wix page and it looks like it has to be a custom code.
If anyone has successfully be able to link patreon and a Wix website where the rewards are hosted I would greatly appreciate all of the help I can get.
The specific issue that you told wouldnt change by changing from WP to Wix. Its a case of an unknown patron giving access to a 3rd party which downloads stuff from your site. The same patron would give the same access to that 3rd party at Wix too and the same process would continue.
Additionally, if you code something with Wix, you would have to code the same oAuth2 logic that the WP plugin has. So nothing changes there too.
What kind of downloads are you providing to your patrons?
Although I’m quite adept ion computer hardware and software, that does not apply to coding. I’m looking at hiring someone to do it if I can’t make it happen. What I am looking for ideally are premade coding scripts that I can edit to fit my needs, and a step by step guide on how to implement them.
I release a daily comic Monday-Friday. These comics are excerps from ongoing comic projects. When the comic is completed, I release the full edition. What I had been doing was release the full edition on Patreon 2 weeks before I offer it for sale on the Wix site. A few times it has appeared on Kemono before I ever had a chance to sell it outside of Patreon. The comics are in .pdf format.
That looks very similar to what I want to do. I would have the title page on the wix site, they would have to unlock with Patreon, then get sent back to the site. Are you then saying that his comics cannot be downloaded? They have to be viewed either on Patreon or on the website? Or does this guy alow download after it’s unlocked?
That wouldnt work with Wix. That’s the WordPress plugin that you have. You can turn that on by going to WP admin → Patreon Settings and turning ‘Image locking’ on. Then you can lock your images in the media library or in post editor.
But that feature requires a decent hosting account and your host must support .htaccess. Try making sure that you confirm those before turning it on.
I know there’s no Wix plug in. The prospect of moving the site to Wordpress is daunting, so I’m not excited about doing that. I have talked to a few coders at freelancers.com that say they can create the codes to make it happen on a wix site. It’s costly, around $500.
