Adding new fields (8 posts)

    Hi there,

    New question for you. The client I'm working for would like me to add a "company/organization" text box and a "comments" text area to the donation form (both optional). I've done so, but the data isn't being captured or displayed in my dashboard (even though I've added the variables and code in all the appropriate places).

    Is it not possible for me to add new fields/data inputs?

    Yes, we need to add Employer information to this form so that it meets FEC guidelines. Will you let us know if there's a way to alter the code to do this and where?

    Ps. Also, it would be nice if there was a way for a us to clean up the styling such as the donation amounts.

    The plugin doesn't support adding custom fields (yet) - sorry!

    Is the Data just serialized and outputted? If so, could we just go into the code and code in more fields? Or does the form-processing script need to be heavily modified to accept those new fields? I too am in need of adding specific fields due to legal guidelines.

    I've managed to add some new fields.

    My two issues now:
    - Despite duplicating everything I see about existing fields, my new fields are showing up on the donation record as blank. Seem to be missing something. I added what I felt were all necessary fields in dgx-donate-admin.php, dgx-donate-paypalstd-ipn.php and dgx-donate.php

    - Can't figure out how to include these new fields in the CSV export.

    Is it still the case that Seamless Donations does not support custom fields? I require a comments field as well.

    Anyone figure out how to add an additional field? I also need to add the Company and position fields to follow the requirements of the law.

    Added an employer match field in my form here...had to hack around the code as it is hardcoded a lot, but I needed to add the fields. Of course, I can't update to the newest release because of it, but I just wanted to show an example of what I ended up doing.
