Reviews

Really fantastic support

I installed the widget on my website with ease although there was an issue whereby the live data was pulling through from my Virgin Money page. I emailed Elliott and he responded very quickly and started looking into what the issue could be. It is now fixed and on sits on my homepage and gives a really good measure of your progress before linking users to the page itself.

Thanks again!

Great support

The developer was very responsive in testing and fixing some initial issues and helping through the process (tip, it takes a few days for VirginGiving to activate and approve your API).
The widget is what I needed for my site to link to my donations page for a charity challenge as I wanted to show how much had been raised from within the site, and had multiple donations pages I wanted to link to for different events.
Only slight downside is that the widget is very large so takes up some sidebar real estate, but perhaps there might be a second version that gives an option of two sizes in a future release, but for the moment it’s the only functioning VirginGiving plugin I could find, so definitely useful.
