DonateRequest Plugin for Joomla 1.5 Native
Written by CH Cheah

Joomla Plugin to insert a Paypal Donation button into content. You can insert a custom description text together with the donation button. This description can be turned on or off with an option parameter. Button can be aligned to the left or right of your page. Besides your paypal email address, you can also insert a donation text into the paypal window such that the donation item is already pre-added when the user clicks on the donation button.

Usage: In your content where you want to insert the donation button, type (in between braces {}):

  • donaterequest or
  • donaterequest-n if you want to hide the Donate Request Text.

In the administrator screen of the plugin you can configure:

Alignment: Whether the button or description is aligned to the left or right of your page.

Donate Request Text: The text you want to show with the button in your content (for example, "Please donate if you like this item....")

Paypal Donation Item Text: The payment item description to insert into the paypal payment screen that appears after the user clicks on the donate
button.

Paypal Email Address: Your Paypal Email Adress

 

Known Issues

  1. This DonateRequest plugin needs to run after any email cloaking plugin that you have installed, including the default Content - Email Cloaking plugin which ships with Joomla 1.5. This means that in the plugin menu, the Content - Request Donation plugin needs to be below the Content - Email Cloaking plugin or any other email cloaking plugin that you have.

If you have issues you can note them in the comments section below. We will try to help you with them if we can.

If you liked this plugin and found it useful, would you consider a small (or big Laughing) donation, to support this site.

Chin has been of great help to make this component work for me. If you have any problem, try the following.

If you go to your joomla administration and check the plugin menu, you can find a module called Content - Email Cloaking. You need to ensure that this plugin is run first before the Content - Request Donation plugin. Means that Content - Email Cloaking needs to be on-top of the list and Content - Request Donation is below it.

The reason is that the email cloaking plugin will cloak any email address present in the content. But for my donation module to work, it needs to POST your paypal email to paypal, and this cannot work if it has been cloaked. However if you get the donation plugin to run after the cloaking plugin then it will be fine.

Hi,

This would be a truly excellent plug-in if you could change the currency from USD to other currencies e.g. EUR or GBP.

Thanks for producing it.

not seeing how sugar synthesis of macmillan http://rapid4me.com/?q=macmillan+Dictionary changes more than a cute retro. 5 years and who is using this stuff? while metathesis changes the way we make molecules, the quick sugar synthesis looks like a parlor trick to me. in fact, the same thing was published in TL by barbas and list months before. IMO all the organocat stuff is filled with enormous hype but is not delivering any fundamentally new chemistry.

Really love this but can't use it because of the currency issue...

Can you at least hint at what to change in the code to make this work for GBP?

Cheers

I really loved reading your blog. It was very well automotive insurance authored and easy to understand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not good. I also found your posts very interesting. In fact after reading, I had to go show it to my friend and he enjoyed it as well!

I use the "Donate" button a lot for my NPO websites that I've designed. It seems to work great, and Paypal does a great job of managing the funds once everything is set up. I'm working with an NPO now that is trying to use Paypal for their online payroll and FICA tax payments. So far it is working great.

TO CHANGE CURRENCY FOR DUMMIES (like me):
1) expand the .zip package
2) open the file donaterequest.php with a text editor
3) look for the line 143:
"".
4) type "return" after the dot and add this line:
"".
5) change EUR with the currency you prefer. The list is here: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_nvp_currency_codes
6) save the file
7) zip again all the files
smilies/cool.gif install in Joomla as usual.

Very easy to use. One problem: if I enter Chinese words for the Paypal Item Text, then those words will be shown as unreadable symbols on Paypal page. I think this must be the encoding problem, J1.5 use utf-8 but Paypal use other charset. Is it possible to solve this problem? Thanks.

I am trying to put the box in one of the article but when I put {donaterequest} in the article, it just displays the same text. I have enabled and ordered the plugin as instructed, just got stuck on {donaterequest}.
