Posts are not showing up on site, neither are any buttons

I synced up my posts into my wordpress, I’ve been trouble shooting for hours.
All I get on my site is a Custom Call to Action Banner image that I added through wordpress access.
That is the only thing that shows up on the page, hide unlock with patreon button is unchecked…
and none of my synced posts which are open to the public are showing.

Please help : )

“Hide unlock with Patreon” button/option? What is the exact option name? Can you copy/paste it?

Yes – to clarify, I meant “Hide ‘Login with Patreon’ Button.”

My understanding is that I should be able to display my patreon posts on my website - this would include posts that are open to everyone as well as locked posts. Am I mistaken? Do I need a particular type of wordpress set-up? Either way, something other than my call to action banner should be showing up on my site, right? Even though they are marked as synced, my new posts don’t show up either…

Thanks for your help! - Molly

Enable strict oAuth

If on, the plugin will only connect users who are already logged into your WordPress website. If off, new accounts will be created automatically for users who are logging in for the first time via Patreon. Recommended: off

Enable image locking features

If on, you will be able to lock your images and provide patron only images anywhere in your posts like webcomics or visual content. If you aren’t using image locking or having complications due to your web host infrastructure, you can keep this feature off. Whenever you turn this feature on or off, you should visit ‘Permalinks’ settings in your WordPress site and save your permalinks just once by clicking ‘Save’. Otherwise your images may appear broken.

Hiding login with Patreon button is not relevant to any of this. It should not be set to on. Its not obligatory to login with Patreon - both normal WP users and Patreon users can log into the site already.

If you set that banner and despite all that no locked post is showing Patreon button and interface, then there may be an issue with caching at your site with your pages showing cached/stale versions of the pages or your site may have lost connection to Patreon.

You can try following the steps in the below guide to refresh your connection:
