Log In Error Using Plugin


When users try to log into Wordpress, they get the following message

Sorry. A WordPress user with the same email you use at Patreon exists. Please log into this site with your WordPress user first, and then log in with Patreon to link these two accounts…

How do I resolve this?


This means that a user with the same email already exists in WordPress.

What the user should do is to just log into that WordPress account normally from WordPress. Then s/he can click the ‘Unlock with Patreon’ buttons in locked posts or ‘Login with Patreon’ button in login page, and link his/her Patreon account with that WordPress account.

This will let the user access locked content from that point on.
