Support » Plugin: Personal Fundraiser » Help with displaying campaign/fundraiser correctly

  • A few probs Im having with setup.

    I have added a text area, and add photo to the personal fundraiser fields and saved.
    However, they do not appear anywhere when I try to create a fundraiser or view one or edit.

    I’ve read other posts saying I then have to add the shortcode to each fundraiser.
    Does this then mean I have to do this for every one created?
    Is there a way to add these fields ‘in general’ to appear on all fundraisers that Im missing?

    Also for displaying fundrasiers…
    on menu – it lists each fundraiser individually. I don’t want a separate menu link to each and every fundraiser… Can I add them to a page like a portfolio? Or in categories?
    Or can I display a featured pic thumb for each fundraiser created somewhere instead of a text link by using /give ?

    Thanks for the great work 🙂

    The Personal Fundraiser plugin has two important concepts:
    Causes and Campaigns

    Think of Causes as the templates for your Campaigns. You use the Cause to define what fields you will collect by adding the corresponding shortcodes to the Cause. Then when people create fundraising campaigns, they are presented with a dialog that collects the fields specified by shortcodes in the cause.

    I would recommend looking at the example cause that the plugin installs for guidance in setting up your own cause. You can find in by navigating to the Admin Dashboard of your site, click on Causes in the menu and find the cause titled “Help Raise Money For My Cause”. If you Edit it, you will see how it uses the shortcodes. If you view it, you can see how a cause is used to create a campaign.

    As far as displaying fundraisers, how they show up in a menu is fully dependent upon your installed theme. For the most part the personal fundraiser plugin doesn’t support embedding the fundraisers on other pages, just linking to /give and /causes (which will show you lists of campaigns and causes if so configured).

    Ok, got it now with adding text and photo to cause thanks.
    One other thing Im not clear on,
    I want to set up the parameters for the cause in admin, but then allow my users to create their own fundraisers for this cause.
    Is that the way this works?

    Yes, that is exactly how it works. Create the cause in admin and then your users create fundraisers (campaigns) from that cause.
