Simple, effective, nice skins - brilliant!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Works like a charm. I have it set up with PayPal and that was made to work instantly. A truly simple yet effective plugin to create a donation button and show immediately how much has come in so far. Nice alternative skins, too. If you find yourself using it to a similar degree of satisfaction, don't forget to send a little donation to the author to show your appreciation!

This does the trick!

This works great. I can display several fundraising thermometers, each styled differently, and it plays well with paypal, my WeaverII customized theme, and other plug-ins. Thanks for a great Plug-in!

Simple and works well

I tried a few 'thermometer' plugins but this was the only one that was easy to format size, show target and amount raised. Using Graphene theme.

works fine
By , for WP 3.8

The graphical display of olimometer is okay. It works for displaying the actual amount. Installation had no complications and worked instantly after having added the paypal API information.
I tested Olimometer on a local test environment (InstantWP) where Olimometer caught the total of the paypal account MINUS paypal fee. there was a donation about 5 EUR and Olimometer displayed EUR 4,55.
In productive installation Olimometer got the total donation of EUR 5...

Wait there was one complication:
In productive installation Olimometer told me that I did not have enough rights to create a new Olimometer... :/ I used the default Olimometer which is enough for now.

I have Multi site installation.

Thanks for this helpful plugin!!

Immediate errors
By , for WP 3.8

Working with a Genesis theme, which should be pretty standard, but immediately got errors upon activating the plug-in. That always scares me in a plug-in, so I immediately went searching for another fundraising plugin.

Works as described and gives options

Thanks for this plugin. It works as described and the FAQ helped me make the few customizations that I wanted.

Don't See The Point
By , for WP 3.5.1

Installed and setup just fine. However, this script only shows your current PayPal balance. It does not track donations as they come in, other than the increase in your PayPal account. If you use funds from PayPal, of course the amount raised will go down, again because it shows your actual current PayPal balance. I fail to see the usefulness in this other than to show the world how much money I currently have in PayPal.
