4 top level menu items for one plugin? No thanks...
By ,

I installed it and four additional menu items were added to the main menu of wordpress. Donations, donors, funds and seamless donations were added along side pages, posts, plugins etc. I need a donations plugin not a hysterical attention-seeking new best friend.

JavaScript Errors
By , for WP 4.4.2

There are significant JavaScript errors that are recorded with Seamless Donations. This causes conflicts with other plugins causing them to fail. Had to remove this plugin and search for another.

Hosed my site and database.
By ,

just had to rebuild my database after installing this plugin- no thanks! caused 500 errors after anyone logged in!

I already had the "Give" plugin installed so maybe they fight- either way it was good lesson to keep sql backups. You all can keep this donation!

One basic shortcoming, unfortunately
By , for WP 4.3.1

Sad to say I had to abandon using this as the radio buttons on this were just not clickable. Online help was not helpful and just suggested using a contractor to sort it.
It should just work out of the box - have never had this problem before.

Total Disaster Since It Was Taken Over - AVOID!
By ,

I don't even know where to begin on how bad this has become. It used to work FINE! It used to be STABLE! It no longer is!

Crashed entire site
By , for WP 4.2.2

do not use this plugin.

it crashed my entire site for over a day.
said it caused a fatal error.

kinda glad it's been abandoned...

I had made a modified(somewhat improved) version for a client. I thought all was good and that my changes would NOT be over written.

I had even created a "must-use plugin" with -

add_filter( 'auto_update_plugin', '__return_false' );

And that wasn't enough. Either wordpress ignores it or the plugin did.

This plugin is a good starting point for accepting donations. However, there are a few things I would change (as a new wordpress site admin) :

1. prohibit automatic updates - I needed to make some customizations and the plugin automatically updated itself and wiped out all of my changes.

2. allow for custom data fields and labels - For example, the group I'm assisting wants a single amount of $25.

3. optionally disable or bypass ALL paypal interaction - I trust that paypal interactions work correctly, but I want to customize thank-you pages, emails, logs, and not require a paypal sandbox.

4. allow for an additional form - the group I'm assisting needs one "donation" page and one for membership and/or event registrations. It would be helpful if I could use the same plugin for both. Then the look and feel would be consistent. It would also be helpful if the additional form(s) would create separate or distinguishable log entries. I'm not sure at this time if the additional forms will require the use of a separate paypal account.

Please note that I am new to wordpress and may not be aware of capabilities related to what I noted above. However I have experience in PHP, HTML, and some java. So with guidance I can figure things out and make changes as needed.
