Release Notes

Tested/tweaked for Elgg 1.7

  • I am not using river dashboard instead i'm using custom_index_widgets for the dashboard and for showing widgets on dashboard of members. So where would i need to change in codes so that i can show the donators on home page????

  • @ralhulneo

    I really do not know, I have never used custum_index.

    My guess is that you need to add mod/donation/views/default/donation/donation.php to custom_index/index.php.

    Good luck


  • If I don't use River Dashboard then is it possible to display on index page.If yes then how? Can you help me.

  • @ slyhne -- is it possible to possible to provide the link for the donate on any button on the home page and the group page???

    kindly help me out

  • Hi,

    Can you please guide me how to display this plugin in all groups and while creating groups, group owner can change the Settings and they can provide the PayPal code and bank account .

  • @slyhne Is it possible to display this plugins only in group page? If possible how?

  • @KINGrahul - this plugin is not group-enabled, so the answer is no.

    @rahulneo & dwaipayan - I'm sure it's possible, you would have to make sure it's shown in owner_block.

    Maybe something like adding this line to mod/donation/start.php:

    $context = get_context();

    if($context == 'groups'){



    This is not tested, it's just how I think it should be added... You could ask in the plugin development group.

  • @slyhne --  thanks it's working.

    But when i'm integrating the paypal code then the image is coming but there is no link on the image so that it will take me to the paypal page. Is this coz i'm using just the codes for adding the button and haven't register myself with paypal yet??

  • @rahulneo

    Yes, you need to register a Paypal account and then generate the button code for your account.

  • @ slyhne Is it possible to create group specific donations? I need this features,other wise the mod is great. Thanks a lot for such mod.

  • @dwaipayan

    No, that is not possible. I think that you would have to rewrite the plugin completely to get group functionality.

  • @ slyhne I modify the page into project from language file and trying to do it for group specific.Now I want to add donation button in the project page, which will track current project information that is so and so project and a customer want to donate something about the project which directly goes to paypal.

    Is it possible? I want this feature.

    Thanks and regards,

  • I can't get this to display on any page. The only option I have is to send it to all members by mail.

    I'm running version 1.7.1, have the River Dashboard and followed the instructions, and nothing is showing anywhere.

    Another option would be to create a page with the button embedded, then add a custom link to the drop-down and around the site directing members to it. This might actually be a better option as it gives you the chance to better explain why you need donations and how members can donate easily.

    It's a great idea, but definitely needs a widget option, more specific instructions for adding to various pages, and further info on bank transfer (I don't think this is possible in such an easy way as described in the above description).

  • @luke

    Did you add a view to the donation box in /mod/riverdashboard/index.php ?

    Modify index.php like this:

    $area1 .= elgg_view("riverdashboard/newestmembers"); //this is an existing line

    $area1 .= elgg_view("donation/donation"); // This is the added line for donation

  • I'm having the same type of issue luke, the donation widget shows up under dashboard but any time i paste the checkout button Code in side of the administration widget. The paypal: <button> doesnt show nor does it give the email address to donate to... im also on 1.7.1.

  • @redonkuless & Luke

    After you insert the button code from Paypal and save it, could you please go back in the admin-seetings and make sure the Paypal code is still okay?

    Next try disabling the plugin htmlawed temporarily, just to make sure it doesn't mess with the code.

    Have heard rumors that it must be disabled during setup of the donation plugin. 

  • Disabling htmlawed worked for me. Not sure what would cause that, but you can say that it is comfirmed. Might want to look into fixing that if you have the ability to. Thanks - Redonkuless -

  • @redonkuless

    Just remember to switch htmlawed back on :-)

  • Hi i am also doing the same for my Website just like dwaipayan the Plan is like 

    1.User will create or Register some  village(Group I changed as Village) specific to him.

    2.He will create a project (here i am using Market plugin by changing Market as "Help")

    3.While Posting user can place donation Option.

    4.All the members can able to see that and donate for that Help(Causes).

    How can i achieve this.

  • If you're using the Autodash plugin, you need to change /mod/autodash/index.php, not /mod/riverdashboard/index.php

  • This appears to not work at all in 1.7.3

  • Very nice this plugin, follow the rule of installation. everything works perfectly .. congratulations!
