Under some circumstances, Patreon is showing either misleading or straight-up incorrect ‘this post is early access’ dialog upon saving a post. Here’s the process I followed just now:
- Create a post
- Select ‘Patrons only’ access
- Choose ‘Early access’ [Patron defaults to the post becoming public on Dec 20]
- Select ‘Public post’ [I’ve changed my mind, I want this public]
- Patreon displays a dialog box saying that this post will be embargoed until Dec 20
That’s incorrect! I have this set to a public post. I’m not sure the extent of the damage - was my post saved with incorrect information, and Patreon will carry out the wrong behavior? Or was the dialog simply incorrect, using form state from hidden fields to cough up a message that the back-end systems will later ignore?
