    Hello,
    I translated my website http://www.justinecofoundation.com (English) in French: http://www.justinecofoundation.com.fr.
    I am at the moment fundraising for my NGO on these 2 websites, so I first created a donation form into the English version, that I translated into French on the French version of the website, using a multilingual plugin.
    The thing is the 2 forms are not synchronized; when people give 50 dollars on the French version, we can’t see it in the donation progress of the English version, same the other way around.
    How can I synchronized the 2 donations forms? Is there a particular option?
    Thank you in advance for your help, very much appreciated!

    Hi there,

    The way most all multi-language sites approach this when they have to have duplicate forms is to DISABLE the goals on the individual forms, and use our [give_totals] shortcode. See our docs here:
    https://givewp.com/documentation/core/shortcodes/give_totals

    Let me know if you have additional questions.

    Hi Matt,
    Thank you so much, it worked!!! Now just a fussy question: in the shortcode I’ve just added (the give_totals one), is there a way to change the color of the donations progress bar? No worries if not, I am already happy like that! Thank you again

    Sorry I’ve just realised it didnt go that well: it worked on the English version, but not on the French version: nonetheless I used the same shortcode (give_total) for both of them… Can you help me please? thank you again

    Yes, you can customize the color, but let’s get it working as intended first then circle back on that.

    Can you provide me with the following:

    1. A link to your English Form
    2. A link to your French Form
    3. The exact shortcode with all attributes that you have implemented on both pages
    4. Do you have other forms besides those two?

    Thanks!

    Hi Matt,
    thank you for your reply.
    Here are my links:

    1. On my French version: http://justinecofoundation.com/fr/ (third block), link of the donation page: http://justinecofoundation.com/fr/faire-un-don/

    2. On my English version: http://justinecofoundation.com/ (third block), link of the donation page: http://justinecofoundation.com/donation-page/

    3. The shortcode I used:
    – English version (this one is working = total $US394.71): <h2>Together, let’s make our dream come true!</h2>
    [give_totals ids=”403, 3514″ total_goal=”50,000″ message=”Namaste! We’ve raised US{total} of the US{total_goal} we are trying to raise for this campaign!” link_text=”Donate!” progress_bar=”true”]
    .
    [give_form id=”403″]

    – French version (not working: total only $US344.71, the $US50 of the English donation form is missing): <h2>Ensemble, faisons de notre rêve une réalité!</h2>
    [give_totals ids=”3514, 403″ total_goal=”50,000″ message=”Namaste! Nous avons récolté US{total} des US{total_goal} visés pour notre collecte de fonds!” link_text=”Faire un don!” progress_bar=”true”]
    .
    [give_form id=”3514″]

    4. No, that the only 2 forms I have!

    Thank you 🙂
