Is multiple sites for the same Patreon impossible?


I help to run multiple websites that all run under the same banner (actually a Wordpress network), and the same Patreon as well. Each site posts serialized web fiction with different series and authors. I want to use this plugin to easily offer advance-release chapters for each series; it worked for the first site, but when I tried to connect the second one, it just went to this error page:

{“errors”:[{“code”:3,“code_name”:“ParameterInvalid”,“detail”:“Invalid parameter for ‘oauth_client_id’: 7800.”,“id”:“ab94fb0d-28a0-4cb8-a2c8-1a07f18b4fa3”,“source”:{“parameter”:“oauth_client_id”},“status”:“400”,“title”:“Invalid value for parameter ‘oauth_client_id’.”}]}

Here is the plugin info, if needed:
WP 5.5.3 with PHP 7.4.11
Patreon WordPress 1.6.8 with API v2

I am not a developer and my knowledge of coding is quite limited, unfortunately, so I apologize if this is a question with an easy answer or fix.

Yes, that is a current limitation with the api in which it allows you to connect only 1 WP site to Patreon using the setup wizard. It does not allow others. This will be fixed in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, you can manually create apps for those subsites at the below page…

…and copy/paste the app details to each site at Patreon Settings page at your WP admin.

Oh, thank you for the info! (Also, I did not realize you just posted this a few minutes ago; great coincidence lol)
