    I wasn’t even aware of the “patronage pipe” until I saw this post over on Reddit about this plugin.

    The official widget indeed takes me to the patronage pipe, but this plugin does not. It just goes to my profile/campaign page. Unless I am doing something wrong.

    I tried entering the ID number from the patronage pipe link into the plugin, but it gives me a 404 error. Only using my Patreon account page name works, but it doesn’t use the patronage pipe.

    The patronage pipe was intended to be used instead of the current profile link that the plugin sends to, however at the time of the creation of the plugin there wasnt a reliable way to acquire the patronage pipe from Patreon (from their api). This is due to the patronage pipe requiring a user id, which is not possible to automatically acquire the id number without having users log in through patreon or other means.

    This feature may be possible with the integration of login with Patreon feature into the plugin. Which is planned for future.

    My apologies, I misread that post on Reddit and thought your plugin was supposed to use the patronage pipe. It indeed takes me to the profile page as you mentioned.

    Thanks!

    No problem.
