Visualization, Template & Security

Hi for this plugin i've read that there are 3 type of custom Template Hierarchy:

Single Fundraiser
wdf_funder-{ID}.php
wdf_funder-{slug}.php
wdf_funder.php

Fundraiser Checkout
wdf_checkout-{ID}.php
wdf_checkout-{slug}.php
wdf_checkout.php

Fundraiser Confirmation Page
wdf_confirm-{ID}.php
wdf_confirm-{slug}.php
wdf_confirm.php

where i can find a drafts templates or a manual?
My theme have a custom visualization without primary content (with % css defined) and i havent found template in plugin directory ..

What kind of account Paypal is needed??
Adaptive Payments require a tech specifications?
What kind of personal data (trasactions) the plugin store in sql?
Where i can find documentations or manuals?
Thanks in advance

    Hi @Sociale

    Welcome to the forums!

    You'll find the Fundraiser manual on this page:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/fundraising/#usage

    Simply click the link where you see "Fundraiser Doc PDF".

    The templating system is available if you experience difficulty with your theme. But they are not required in most cases. The plugin will function just fine without them.

    What kind of account Paypal is needed? Adaptive Payments require a tech specifications?

    A PayPal business account is all you need. If you have a personal account, you can upgrade it to a business account for free. But you will need to create a PayPal Application and enter the Application ID in the plugin settings. You'll find more information on that at the bottom of the "Payments" tab in the Fundraising plugin settings.

    What kind of personal data (trasactions) the plugin store in sql?

    The only thing the plugin might store is the email used to make donation at PayPal. This is recorded and available to view in your wp-admin under "Pledges"

    Hope this helps! And thanks for being a member :slight_smile:

    Tks Patrick, but i need more info about :
    - Template (how i can create a custom one:there isn't info on PDF);
    - Page Type/Post type : i prefer to consider not a default but a custom one with all the other plug in settings, category, tag, etcc.. : how i can change this or import this info in New Fundraisers setup page;
    - There is a method to have a "multiproject" browsing view (for ex. for category or sub category, featured, most recent etc..)

    Thanks in advance,
    Nicola.

    Hi again @Sociale

    Template (how i can create a custom one:there isn't info on PDF)

    Everything you ever wanted to know about WordPress template hierarchy :slight_smile: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

    How to create a page template: http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    Page Type/Post type : i prefer to consider not a default but a custom one with all the other plug in settings, category, tag, etcc.. : how i can change this or import this info in New Fundraisers setup page

    The plugin already creates its own post type called funder. You will notice that if you do not create your own custom templates, the plugin will follow WP template hierarchy and use the single.php template from your theme to display individual fundraisers. By viewing the source code of a page in a default setup, you will notice this body class: single-funder. See the above link on template hierarchy for more on how that works.

    There is a method to have a "multiproject" browsing view (for ex. for category or sub category, featured, most recent etc..)

    I'm afraid I don't quite understand what you mean by that. Do you want to display multiple post types on a single page? If so, there are numerous plugins available in the WP plugin repository that can help you there. I'd need more details to be able to point you in any specific direction :slight_smile:

    Thanks Patrik ...
    I've created a test doing this activity:
    - i've insert a string in wp.config.php like
    /**Template personalizzati */
    define('WDF_CUSTOM_TEMPLATE_FUNCTIONS','/sociale/wdf_funder.php');

    - I've created a file in the principal root file named wdf_funder.php *

    *: it's a copy, only for test, of default post.php file.

    For this reason, my aspectative is to have a a standard post visualization, not a yours funder post style page..??
    Maybe i'm wrong??

    I'm running with Buddypress plugin, maybe there is a different configuration?
    Thanks for your patience,
    Nicola.

    Thankyou Patrick, with some more test, now i've my personal wdf-funder.php template.

    Now, how can i define the templates?? I where i can find info to call the fundraising elements??
    - - -
    I want to add to new fundraising page (in admin mode) more info like category, tag, other plugin functions (like WP Socializer or custom post type) but when i start a new fundraising project, all this function are hidden!!!
    Pls, probably this solve a lot of my last problem with this plugin.
    Thanks in advance, Sociale

    Thanks one more time Patrick but my curiosity it's faster than your reply but...there isn't problem .. i've already solved all the problems already asked! :wink:

    Now my next steps are :
    - dev a multipost page with many funder project, categorized ;
    - dev a new frontend (maybe in ajax) for the project submission by customer;
    - dev a similar IFRAME config to export/share projects;
    - dev stats (visit/impression/click/directions/etc) linked to a SEO sw ...

    Any suggestions for this??
    Have WPMUDEV alredy developed a statistic panel linked to fundraising plugin & seo?
    Nice day,
    Nicdom.

    Hi @Sociale

    Wow! You have been busy this weekend! Let's see if we can keep it up :slight_smile:

    - dev a multipost page with many funder project, categorized

    See the codex here for how to create custom loops to query post types:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types#Querying_by_post_type

    dev a new frontend (maybe in ajax) for the project submission by customer

    You can likely do that with existing front-end form solutions like Gravity Forms or Formidable Pro:
    http://gravityforms.com/
    http://formidablepro.com/

    dev a similar IFRAME config to export/share projects

    Creating an iframe is very simple. See here for how:
    http://www.wikihow.com/Create-an-iFrame-or-%27inline-Frame%27

    Here's a neat little online generator to make 'em in seconds:
    http://7thspace.com/webmaster_tools/iframe_generator.html

    Once you have your iframe, all you need to do is include it on your page (wrapped in code tags) so your users can copy/paste it wherever they like.

    dev stats (visit/impression/click/directions/etc) linked to a SEO sw. Have WPMUDEV alredy developed a statistic panel linked to fundraising plugin & seo?

    Yes. Our Infinite SEO plugin works just fine with Fundraising post types:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/fundraising/

    It also provides detailed and accurate SEO information about your site pages using the SEOmoz Free API.

    Thanks very much Patrick you are solving a lot of my probleme but, after many hour spent to solve multiple post visualization, I avoid this problem and go straight to the following questions:

    - with Gravity forms i can create a front end interface with the fundraising plugin but i need fields name to call them on Gravity and update the plugin.. or not?? *
    - even in Gravity i can create paypal interface for fundraiser (to collect info & sendit for adaptive payments) or what you suggest?
    - How I can get comments & update on TABs?? I' ve tried with wptab and other but when I try to call the comments template this command don't work properly.. suggest also for create update tab?

    * maybe names are : wdf_type;wdf_style;wdf_has_reward;wdf_goal_amount;etc.....
    i need to consider other info for a correct plugin functions?

    Thanks in advance,
    N.
