kinda glad it's been abandoned...
By , for WP 4.1

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.

Thanks!
