I would like to know if someone has made a paypal donations meter plugin for WordPress 2.01. I would like to:
- point my successfull donators to a PHP page which lets the user type in a URLor nickname to be shown on the list of donators.
- top-6 or top-10 donators could be listed on my sidebar, with a "View All" link that goes to a page where there is listed all donators, from the biggest donators at the top of the list to the smallest at the bottom.
- Donations of any amount should unlock the possibillity for users to Register on my WordPress site. Thus with a donation of any amount, a user can participate in my xdforum, my newsletter-plugin, polls and even normal comments if I wanted to. Or for example comments by registered users would be highlighted differently than anonymous comments. As well as possibillity to digg blog-entries.
- This will attract advertisers who would like to have their URL listed on my top-6 donators at any given time. I would like to add a line at the end of every new post that lists the current top-6 donators URL or nicknames, so the current top-donators would be featured at the end of my RSS feed for every post.
- There would be a "All time top-6 donators" list as well as I could have a weekly auction system, where there is a countdown on the page, at the end of that time, the top-6 donators will be engraved on a "The weeks top-6 donators". So when users click on "View All" they see on the left the weekly podiums as well as on the right all the same names in a "All-time top donators list". And that list features every single donators.
- A donator is identified by donator-email info from paypal system, so a user can allways receive a new generated password per email that gives possibillity to log-in as registered user. A user can at any time add more money to their current donation-amount. A user can at any time change the name of their donation (URL/nickname), when they do a small "(edits)" appears for everyone to see a list of the different previous URLs or nicknames used to identify that donation. Or a user can register new donations for the same user but can never have more than one login for forum/newsletter/polls per email/user/IP/cookie.
I have found on google a couple of places that make realtime paypal donations meter, but I don't feel confortable having a third party manage my donations:
I don't see why an externally hosted donations meter is necessary!
Instant Payment Notification (IPN) functionality:
Okay, please help me figure out how to do this! Maybe a new plugin for this kind of paypal donat-o-meter for WordPress would be great!
