In the next step, you will need to have a way to allow visitors to access to donation form and process donation. There are different ways to setup it as explained below
You can create menu item to link to Campaigns list page (when users access to this menu item, they will see list of campaigns and can choose to donate for the campaign they want) or link directly to donation form (users will see a form and can enter information to process donaton immediately). To create menu items to link to Joom Donation, please follow the steps below:
In this case, we want users to be able to acces to donation form to make donation, so :
Beside creating menu items to allow users making donation, you can use the modules come with the extension. Usually, these modules will be displayed in a module position on your site (maybe in your homepage) and used as a starting point for users to start making donation. Just publish the module, assigned it to module position you want.
Joom Donation also has a content plugin which allow you to embed donation form of a campaign into a Joomla article. This usually be used if you want to write an artile to describe about the campaign and display donation form right after that description to allow users making donation. The steps are:
The donation form in Joom Donation is fully customizable. You can enable/disable some options, choose to show/hide, require/not require any fields on the form, config pre-defined amounts.... Please see the details in the list below:
When users access to donation form to process donation, there will be a message displaed at the beginning of the form (as you can see in the image above). To change that default message:
If you want to allow your donors to enter username and password to register for an account on your website when they make donation, you can go to Joom Donation -> Configuration, find the config option User Registration, set it to Yes. Otherwise, you can set it to No.
If you want to users who have existing account on your site to be able to login before continue the donation process (so that the donation record will be assigned to his account), you can go to Joom Donation -> Configuration, find the config option Show login box on donation form, set it to Yes (this should be set to Yes if you allow users registration)
If you want to make a field on donation form to be showed/hided or required/not required, please go to Joom Donation -> Custom Fields, publish/unpublish or mark it as required/not required.
Sometime, you might want to change title of the custom field (for example, change it from Organization to Company, change from Zip to Postal code..). In this case, just go to Joom Donation-> Custom Fields, click on the custom field you want to change and edit it, change the title to meet your need.
By default, Joom Donation has has 4 sample pre-defined amounts (10$, 20$, 30$, 40$). If you want to change these pre-defined amounts to the amount you want, please go to Joom Donation -> Configuration, find the config option Pre-defined amounts, change these amounts to the amounts you want. If you don't want any pre-defined amounts, just empty the value of this config option.
When you first install Joom Donation, the extension auto generate a list of pre-defined custom fields which we call Core Fields. They are First Name, Last name......If you want to collect more information of donors, you can go to Joom Donation-> Custom Fields and create any extra custom fields you want. Joom Donation also has an advanced feature so that each campaign can have it own set of custom fields. If you want to use this feature, go to Joom Doantion -> Configuration, set Custom Fields by Campaigns config option to Yes.
