Patron Plugin Pro functions out of the box. Just make sure you followed installation steps listed here closely.
1 – The minimum thing you need to know is how to mark your posts or content Patron-only.
Read how you can lock your singular posts, pages and custom post types here.
Check out how you can lock only parts of your post content here.
See how you can lock entire post types, categories or tags here.
These are enough to get you started in locking your content. At the manual, you can find even more ways to gate your content and more features to increase your pledges & patrons.
2 – Do make sure you visit “Patron Plugin Pro” menu in your WordPress admin, go to “Addons” tab, and enter and activate your site with the license key you got during your purchase.
This step is important since this will enable you to receive automatic updates for new features and fixes to your plugin easily from your WordPress admin. In case there isn’t an active license, plugin will not receive updates.
3 – Enjoy your new Patrons and Pledges!
