Support » Plugin: Patreon WordPress » Is there a way to change usernames?

    I noticed that when people sign up with patreon to my website the biggest complain is that they become patreon_1234567890. I understand this as people have an online identity they really like and this gives them the impression they are nothing more than a number. Is there a way to change this? Can it be edited to let the user pick a username after signing up to the website instead of given a random patreon number?

    Please prefer our official support forum when inquiring for support:

    ……

    We did not intend the users to log in via the generated username above, expecting that they would prefer to log in via Patreon. And their own Patreon handles are supposed to appear wherever they are necessary. If that username is appearing instead of their Patreon handle, that may be a configuration setting at your site.

    …..

    We seem to be using the generated username only to satisfy WordPress requirements and not to be using it anything specific or login related.

    You may try changing the username of a Patreon user and seeing if they are able to access your site functions and Patreon functions at your site without problems.
