    after a succesful payment users are getting a 404 error, when returning to the site.

    Example of the URL that is not found:
    [Link removed]
    Consequently, also the donations lists is not updated automatically.

    Any idea what can be going wrong?

    I have followed the Paypal configuration steps, as indicated in the installation instructions.

    It is still unclear to me whether the authorize.net and mailchimp settings are essential for my purpose (I just want to be able to set up a crowd fund campaign myself).
    It would be nice if the installation instructions gave a bit more information on what each component does, to understand all of the interactions between them.

    The Personal Fundraiser plugin was intended to be used with WordPress sites that use Pretty Permalinks (also see setup here. It looks like your site does not use them currently.

    As far as authorize.net and mailchimp are concerned, if you are not using them, then you do not need to configure them.

    Ok, I will try and enable it.

    BTW, is it possible to edit my first message of this thread? In hindsight it was not a good idea to post the whole URL there, so I would like it to be removed...

    Allright, that was the missing link ;)

    It's working now.

    Thanks for the help!
