The personal fundraiser plugin always requires users to login or register before a campaign is available to the public, but depending how you have it configured, the behavior varies:
- If you check the checkbox "Login Required to Create", you must first login before you can create a campaign. If a non logged in user navigates to the cause page (eg /causes/sample-cause/ ) they will simply see what looks like an empty campaign. In this configuration, I would recommend only providing a link to the campaign creation page (eg /causes/sample-cause/ ) for logged in users as for non logged in users this screen is useless.
- If you leave the checkbox "Login Required to Create" unchecked, users who are not logged in can start the process of creating a campaign, but that campaign will not appear to the public until the user logs in or registers. The reason that it works this way is so that people are motivated to login/register after they have done the work of creating a campaign (instead of making login/registration) a barrier to creation.
