How do I edit or delete a post?

  • Updated

We understand that the editing process is never truly finished. There are a couple of ways to edit or delete posts from your page if you have second thoughts. 

In this article, we’ll cover:

Editing or deleting a post on desktop

  1. While logged in to your creator account, click on the My Page button from the left-hand if you aren’t already there
  2. Click the Page controls ...” button
  3. Click on the Manage posts link from the submenu
  4. You’ll land on the Published posts tab
  5. Locate the post and click the Edit or Delete button, depending on what you’d like to do

Alternatively, you can:

  1. Locate the post you want to delete on your feed
  2. Click the Edit or Delete post button at the bottom of the post (above the comment section)
  3. If you’re editing a published post, be sure to click the Save button to make your changes live

Editing or deleting a post on the Patreon app

  1. While logged into your creator account on the app, tap on the Posts icon from the bottom menu
  2. Locate and tap on the post you want to make changes to
  3. Tap the more menu in the top right corner (3 dots)
  4. Tap on Edit or Delete, depending on what you’d like to do
  5. Once you’re done with your edits, tap the Next button

Are you a per creation creator?

If you've checked the option to charge patrons for a post and delete that post within the same month, any pending bills for patrons will be deleted. This means any patrons with pending bill(s) for a paid post will not be charged if you delete your post within the same month it was created.

Additionally, if you've published a post as unpaid, you cannot edit the post to retroactively bill patrons. If you forgot to select the option to charge patrons, we recommend deleting the post, and creating a fresh post – don’t forget to select to charge patrons.
