I don't know if this is in the proper section but I am attempting to do something...
I am working on a site for a college tennis team's fund raising campaign for Ronald McDonald House. Know that I am not charging for this site at all. So any offers to assist with this problem would have to be done at really cheap prices but I am not against paying so long as I can learn at the same time.
This is not something I have dealt with yet.
The client wants a "donations" page. Where someone can log on, select and fill out their info and make a donation. I need the form to do a few things.
#1 It needs to create a database. I have found a plugin that does this. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mm-forms-community/
#2 I need to be able to code in the site in certain areas numbers that will update from this database automatically. Such as on the front page a banner that states "We have raised $$$ so far!" I need the $$$ to represent a sum of the donations.
#3 Each tennis player will be tracked individually and the pledges are going to be for "each win." So... The math will get a little complex in the coding but it is pretty simple I think once I get it figured out that will not be a problem. I have programmed in Basic before so math isn't to hard.
I just have no clue where to go with this.
If someone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks so much!
