I just installed the Fundraising plugin on my website and (also) having the issue with the progress

I just installed the Fundraising plugin on my website and (also) having the issue with the progress bar is not being shown up (like Gabrielle). Maybe as by Michele one of your team (Alexander Rohmann) could log into my site (www.innovahealth.eu) to look at this?

Futher: Attracted to "Kickstart Cash Flow With the New Fundraising Plugin For WordPress, Multisite and BuddyPress" by Sarah Gooding, I choose the Fundraising Plug-in to offer local start-ups in Dutch healthcare a platform to create their own funds to raise funds for their projects.

Besides the support with the progress bar is not being shown up, I would like to ask how you could help me 1). to activate and optimal integrate Fundraising with Multisite funtion so that users can create fundraising initiatives across your network and 2) help me to (new) install and optimal integrate BuddyPress with Fundraising.

I hope to hear from you soon,
Best regards,
Thomas

    Hello there @Thomas and welcome to the WPMUDEV Community!

    I just installed the Fundraising plugin on my website and (also) having the issue with the progress bar is not being shown up (like Gabrielle).

    Ummm.... Who is Gabrielle? We have thousands of members, there's more that one Gabrielle! Do you have a link to her issue?

    1). to activate and optimal integrate Fundraising with Multisite funtion so that users can create fundraising initiatives across your network

    When network-enabled,the Fundraising plugin basically sets up an individual fundraising site for each site on your network, and there is no connection between them. So each member will have to set-up the fundraising plugin to fit their own needs on their site.

    2) help me to (new) install and optimal integrate BuddyPress with Fundraising.

    What kind of integration do you want?

    Please advise,
    Ari

    @Thomas I'm sorry for the delay on this post, I just had a day off!

    I'm afraid I'll have to take a closer look at your backend to figure out what is going on...
    Could you please send some user credentials so that I may take a look?
    - Send an email using our secure contact form on https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/
    - Select "I have a different question" from the dropdown
    - On the subject enter "Attn: aristath".
    - Include the URL of this post in your message so that I may track this issue
    - Include a link to your website
    - Include your superadmin credentials (username + password)
    - Include your FTP user/pass so that I may check if there's something wrong with your theme.

    Cheers,
    Ari.

    Because of the continuing problems with the instalation of the Fundraising plug-in, I sent you on your request the login-information of my website.
    Although the request for this is a delicate matter on itself, it is then downright weird after sending you the information to get no back response within 48 hours.
    Because it feels no longer good share your community to can trust on your support, I'll hope that after a week trying you can make the purchase and annual subscription fee for the Fundraising plug-in undone.
    Cheers, Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    Sorry for the delay here, thanks for letting me work with you on this through email. Basically, your theme is totally non-standard. It uses shortcodes to display standard post content in these particular sections of the theme, so Fundraising's extra content doesn't get loaded.

    To workaround that, I've just added Fundraising shortcodes instead, as follows:

    [fundraiser_panel id="2458" show_title="Yes" show_content="Yes"]

    [progress_bar id="2458" show_title="yes" show_totals="yes"]

    [donate_button description="Please donate" donation_amount="2000" button_type="default" button_text="Donate" show_cc="yes" small_button="no" paypal_email="test@gmail.com"]

    I've also set some basic styling(css) up in the Fundraising settings like so:

    .wdf_progress_shortcode_title {
    padding-top: 20px;
    padding-bottom: 20px;
    font-size: 20px;
    }
    
    form.wdf-minimal {
    padding-top: 20px;
    }
    
    form.wdf-minimal label {
    font-size: 20px;
    }
    
    form.wdf-minimal input {
    padding-top: 10px;
    padding-top: 10px;
    }

    Could you let us know how that works for you?

    @aristath, hope you don't mind my chiming in here. Just wanted to help out. :slight_smile:

    Thanks,
    David

    Hoi David,
    Thankx for you help!! Now I can see that the plug-in is working. That gives Some hope that it should be working.

    I can see that it's working with the old project I already made, but when I add a new project the process bar and the other status measures again don't show up.

    Can you try on this again? Or should I do it manualy everytime I start a new project.

    Futher beside the progress bar is it possible to show the other progress measures, like How many people donated, How many day to go to the end of the project etc.

    Till Now Thank you for your geat support,

    Geerts, Thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    I'll see what I can find about displaying other details. Meanwhile, could I ask you to try adding the following below your Fundraising content?

    [fundraiser_panel show_title="Yes" show_content="Yes"]

    [progress_bar show_title="yes" show_totals="yes"]

    [donate_button description="Please donate" donation_amount="2000" button_type="default" button_text="Donate" show_cc="yes" small_button="no" paypal_email="test@gmail.com"]

    Those are shortcodes to display the appropriate panel information.

    See, the issue is that your theme actually uses shortcodes to display the Fundraising content. Something about that makes it so that the panel information doesn't show. It's basically entirely non-standard, at least with regard to content such as custom post types, which is what Fundraising uses.

    To get around that, I've just used the shortcodes that Fundraising provides. It's a workaround. And it's potentially better than altering the theme code, since theme code alterations would get erased in the event of a theme update.

    I hope that makes sense. Let me know if anything is unclear though, I'll see how I can clarify then. :slight_smile:

    Thanks,
    David

    Thankx for your for help again.
    Your right about not changing the Theme codes.
    I will do some experiments finding putting the shortcodes under the content. I guess you mean not using the visual composer. But directly.

    And yes please, if you find about displaying other details...

    I'll let you know How it al works later, Now going to Amsterdam City for a few hours.

    Till later,
    Greets, Thomas

    David,
    By adding the shortcodes below the content you advised a part of the displaying options of Fundraising seems te work. But just then English, so "Donate" should be "Investeer hier" in Dutch.

    Because I like use the normal spectrum of the displaying functions; are there more shortcodes known I can use. Such as the rewards for investers in return on there "donations".

    Greetings,
    Thomas

    Hi there Thomas,

    I should have realized earlier that you would need a custom button. Could you replace that button shortcode with this?

    [donate_button description="Investeer hier" donation_amount="20" button_type="custom" style="" button_text="Investeer hier" show_cc="no" small_button="no" paypal_email=""]

    Oh, you'll want to add your PayPal email address to the paypal_email="" there as well.

    Could you let me know how that works for you?

    Thanks,
    David

    Hi @Thomas,

    Hmm, I'm not sure I follow. Could you let me know what problem specifically you're referring to? Was their a forum thread where something was mentioned?

    I'll gladly have a look at that.

    Also, I made those adjustments to the button and your other Fundraising post. Could you let me know how those work for you currently?

    Thanks,
    David

    @DavidM Just wanted to say thank you for your replies on this post regarding the issue with some themes having to generate the fundraising content via shortcodes. I was having the exact same problem and was pulling my hair out for hours trying to troubleshoot why the fundraising content wasn't showing. I came across your post and the issue with my theme is now solved. Many thanks!
