  1. Hi there, I’ve tried adding this to my website but can’t quite get it to work.
    What do I need to change in the code to reference the specific campaign? Do I add a seperate snippet of code for each campaign I want to add?
    Code snippet automatically creates a shortcode (something like [wpcode id="8330"]) so I assume I just add this as a short code?

  2. Jordan,

    The above snippet should be added “everywhere” in WPCode and then you can add the function to a page on your site (as noted in the top comments) in PHP:

    ed_charitable_get_campaign_donate_button( 123 );

    ‘123’ would be the campaign ID. For this we reocmmend one button/modal per page. For a regular button in PHP that points to a campaign page, that’s more straightforward:

    echo get_permalink( 123);

    This is a WordPress function that should result in http://www.testsite.com/campaign – if you always have /donate you can simply add that (in this example of a potential button:r

    <a href="”>Donate

    There are no shortcodes involved here in terms of what to add. There ARE shortcodes to add a donation form, for example:r


    I hope this helps.
