Look at the screenshots, a picture is worth a 1000 words :-)


* Drop donation folder i /mod* Aktivate plugin in "Tool Administration"* In the settings specify how you want it setup* Modify /mod/donation/languages/en.php to get the text right


To manually get this plugin to show in the sidebar of a page you have point to it. See example below:

$sidebar = elgg_view("donation/sidebar");

$params = array('content' => $content, 'title' => $title, 'sidebar' => $sidebar);

$body = elgg_view_layout('one_sidebar', $params);

In "Tool Administration" setup how you want it:

  • Show donators as: small icons or tiny icons (for the sidebar box)
  • Announce donations to River: Yes/No
  • Show donation status on profil: Yes/No (Covers profile and user list, see screenshots)
  • Number of donators to display: 4/6/8/12/24/36 (How many donators should the sidebar box show)
  • Insert Paypal code here: Paste your Paypal code here (If not, everything refering to Paypal will not be shown)
  • Optional: A bank account number for bank tranfers: (If not, everything refering to Bank transfer will not be shown)
  • Optional: Bitcoin support
  • Optional: show in sidebar

Notice! If you have problems entering the paypal code, then try and disable the plugin htmlawed. Remember to switch it back on afterwards!

That's it.
