Why is my amount raised not showing?

Make sure you have URL File access on your web server is turned on.
In php.ini, set the following fields to ‘On’:
allow_url_fopen = On;
allow_url_include = On;

How do I prepare my images?

To use Donate Goals, you should have two images — one image should be an empty meter, and the other image should be what your meter will look like when your fundraising goal is reached. Your image should be formatted as a .jpg, .gif or .png.

Does my image have to be vertical or horizontal?

Donation Goals works with both vertical and horizontal images, but both your empty meter and your full meter should be the same orientation.
