[fixed] Patreon discovery not working
nox 1 Jun, 2019

Hi!

I got an email about not being able to find my patreon contribution.

I then went to the website with the provided link, which took me to a site which told me I didn't have access.
This site should really have a login box directly.

Then, when I went through with the proper verification (pressing Allow) I just get told to do it again.

The text at the bottom of the site say "{:text}" after allowing patreon

Sorry for the troubles, will take a look first thing tomorrow.

Good idea on the login box will add that too!

Seems it did work though since you have supporter status, strange.

Ah alright! :) Thanks for all the work you do

Okay so:

- The User Control Panel will now actually show a login form if you're not logged in and not just an unhelpful message telling you to return to the main page <_<

- The message should now appear telling you what it did when you login with Patreon, I had the messages all in the code...I just apparently forgot to actually send them to the template file weeeeeeeeeeee

- The Patreon Linking page will also actually tell you right away if you're already fine.

In my case, after heading to https://www.gamingonlinux.com/usercp.php?module=patreon, logging in on patreon, allowing gol-checker, i end up with error message "Sorry but it seems your Patreon email is not verified. We suggest you head on over to Patreon to take a look."

... but i do not see any way how to get my email better verified on patreon then it already is (imo email is correctly set there and verified).

I do use different email there, but i did set the Supporter email in https://www.gamingonlinux.com/usercp.php?module=email to the same one used there (visible on patreon on edit profile page).

If your email is not verified on Patreon, you need to sort it directly on Patreon. I would suggest emailing their support team.

I've done a manual run-over their data now though by exporting pledges, you're all set (but I would still ensure you get Patreon to verify your email).
