  • Resolved sceva


    Hello, I am trying out the plugin and when I installed it and opened the sample page, I see this:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function setAttribute() on a non-object in /hermes/bosweb25c/b1254/ipw.touchthe/public_html/site/wp-content/plugins/personal-fundraiser/includes/user.php on line 397

    The offensive line is here:
    $form_node->setAttribute( 'class' , 'pfund-donate-form' );

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Based on the error it appears that the problem is that you have the Donate Button Code for PayPal improperly set. Please see the FAQ for more information on how to setup Personal Fundraiser to use PayPal:

    You are correct! I had the email link code instead of the button code…

    I have a couple of more questions if you don’t mind? I tried using the shortcodes on a normal wp page but they didn’t work – is it possible to use the shortcodes on pages and posts?

    My progress bar is malformed. You can take a look at it here:

    I assume it is a css problem with my template, but I could not figure it out.

    Otherwise this is a very well done plugin – great job.

    One more thing, is there a demo site or live site where I could see how the complete package can be implemented? I am having trouble explaining the concept to others here. Thanks.

    The shortcodes are intended to only be used on the campaign and cause pages, they don’t work on regular pages and posts.

    As far as the progress bar, it does like its a css/html issue. For one thing you have the progress bar within a <ul>, but that’s not really valid HTML because the progress bar generates a <div> which at the very least needs to be wrapped with a <li> to be considered valid HTML. Beyond that I would guess that something in your theme’s style is overriding something in the display of that progress bar.

    If you want to see some live examples of the plugin, here are a couple we have done:

    I watched your WordPress conference video earlier today – very nice. I appreciate what you are doing with Cure and helping out other non-profits.

    Thanks for the examples – that really helps. I started looking for something like a fundraising meter when I ran across this. It has opened up some other possibilities.
