Would it be possible to implement a feature that lets a member donate to give another member the status? Sort of like Reddit's gilding system. They would be able to donate say, $1 to show appreciation to a post another user made, and that would give that user the selected group for an X amount of time.

Cheers!

I have a couple of bugs with the Donation Mike, the text in the donations box for the donations goals sidebar appears to be getting cut off.

This is what I have

This is what is displayed.

Happens on our main theme as well

Secondly, I have the donation goals sidebar active on the forum, however, if I want to activate this on another page I can but it lists all goals (even when they are set to not to be featured, private goals etc). I cannot select from the drop down to choose a specific goal.

Hopefully you can reproduce but if you need further info, let me know.

That's actually intended but I will log a bug report to remove that for single widget goals as you wouldn't really need a truncate in that case.

Just to confirm on the drop down issue, you can't actually select anything when you click that drop down? Doesn't appear or just too hard to select a goal with just a long list?

Thanks Mike, 

With the second issue, nothing can be selected from the drop down (i.e. the drop down doesn't happen).

Ooops, posted this in the wrong topic earlier

Is it possible for me to edit the donation box in the side bar in IPS4?

Also, when setting up the widget in the side bar, if I click the edit button, nothing happens

I want to change the button to an image if possible & also remove the donation amount from that box so that it can be filled in on the next page?

That's a bit more difficult now as that widget uses the form helper to build the donation form instead of raw html code you can modify from the template bit. Any changes need to be applied to the widget file directly now.

The edit button being there is a bug which I've logged a bug report for. And I will be very likely removing the amount option from the widget next version due to some conflicts with the next page.

I am not sure of how others think, but for me, a little bit of text which I can edit and a Donate button is perfect.

If I can play around with the button to make it stand out it will be perfect.

Sure thing Mike, I'll drop you a PM.

Thanks, just a forewarning that there may be a delay until I can address this.

1. Amount field will be removed next version but if you can't wait, I can put together some edits for you to do this in the meantime.

2. If you want to edit the text, edit the language string "block_donateDonate_text" in your admin cp.

3. I've just looked into the possibility of adding an image button instead and it does look like this is possible. Do you have an image in mind that I can test it out with?

1 - Great, will look forward to the update

2 - Thanks for that, I will do it when I get back later

3 - Haven't got a specific  image really as I would probably like to be able to have different images in different skins if it was possible, but something like this would be a start

(But not as big)

Try this edit and let me know how you go. Open applications/donate/widgets/donateDonate.php

Find:

$form->class = 'ipsForm_noLabels ipsForm_fullWidth ipsPad';

Add BELOW:

$form->actionButtons = array( '<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">' );

Save. Now just alter the img url or text to what you want.

Nearly perfect, thank you very much

How can I centralise the image in the side bar?

Try centralizing the form. i.e.

$form->class = 'ipsForm_noLabels ipsForm_fullWidth ipsPad ipsType_center';

I have an issue where goals are still showing even though they are no longer enabled.

1. Showing on the main page, view goals page or in the goal widget?

2. Have they been disabled by an end time, target reached or physically disabled?

Hi Mike,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

  1. Completed goals are still showing both on the goals page and within the widget.
  2. I've tried ending by all three and can't get them to disappear.

I've set them to disabled as well and they still show

I've logged a bug report for this and will take a look and see what's happening. New version shouldn't be too long away but if you do need an immediate fix I'll see if I can put together a patch you can use in the meantime.
