Alternatively you can also get it from github if you prefer that:
To use this beta, just deactivate/delete your existing Patreon WordPress plugin. Then upload and activate the zip you downloaded from dropbox above, or github.
If you are prompted to upgrade your Patreon WordPress to 1.5.4, avoid upgrading. It will override the beta with the existing 1.5.4 version of the plugin which doesnt have post sync feature. You can just upgrade to 1.5.5 or 1.5.6 when post sync feature is out.
If you want to stop using the beta, you can deactivate/delete the beta you installed from the zip downloads above, and install and activate PW 1.5.4.
If you have any issues with the beta or if you have any suggestions, just update this thread.
Its going to be great to be able to have Patreon posts appear on my wordpress blog.
I just set it up and did the import. All the posts were imported, which is great, but it didn’t pull any of the images in. Is there a setting that I need to use?
Hi. It worked briefly but is now not working at all. It says integration is fine in the ‘Health check’ but it isn’t sending any posts across.
While it was working it seems that it doesn’t transfer images across if the original Patreon post was an IMAGE post. It does send images across if the image was an image placed into a TEXT post,.
But as I say, nothing happening now. Should re-install the plugin?
Hitting the import button to force an import would work in that particular case. How fast it would pull all posts would depend on how many posts you have. It currently imports 5 posts per every 5 minutes.
Your site’s cron must be working properly for that to function, of course.
Hi. The import didn’t work. What is ‘cron’ ? The health check says it is working but nothing comes through either when I import or when I post in Patreon. Am a little stuck with this now. Should I delete the plugin and start again?
Did that and it said it was importing. Left it running overnight and it only imported one post which wasn’t even the latest.
One thing I have noticed is that posts that are for patrons only import and retain the Patrons Only thing but they email in their entirety to anyone who has signed up to the Wordpress blog. I can’t think of any way to protect that.
Yes, when you force a full re-import it will import all posts and create missing ones. And update the ones which can be found if you set it to on.
The latest post not being imported is a bit curious. Ill think about that.
The emailing situation is likely due to something set up at your site - an emailer which mails when a new posts are made probably. Thats not at Patreon or Plugin feature so you may be able to do something about that within that particular emailer plugin.
I wrote a new Patreon post today to see whether - after it pulling one through on am inport yesterday - it would automatically pull a new post through. No luck. A bit stuck as to know what to do now.
Auto-syncing of new posts without starting a new import involves Patreon contacting your site when a webhook (new post) triggers, and informing your site of the new post.
If Patreon is not able to contact your site due to any reason like your host filtering Patreon’s ip thinking that it was a bot or a security plugin or feature at your site preventing it, then the information will not come in.
You can contact your host and ask about this to make sure there is no such security feature that blocks such incoming connections and if so, get Patreon IPs whitelisted.
Hi. I think I have fixed it. Used a plugin to put Patreon on a whitelist. Seems to be working.
Many many thanks for your help and patience on this. It is a great facility to have and I am pleased to have it working.
All the very best.
