Looks like it is up and running and in a good spot.

Yeah, I wanted to get it out of the top header. I don't like having a donation box being the first thing you see when the page loads.

Katie, I just noticed it is in multiple forums. Not sure that is what you want either.

I just tried and explicitly did not check the "Anonymous" box to see what would happen and it shows mine and all other donations in the list. This will be the recent donations list which we DO NOT want, right?

But the good thing is, it does work, I just received a notification from PayPal of my payment and all seems well.

Ugh. Yet another dialog box I have to chase down. I'll get it figured out. You can count on it.

When I simply click on "Donations" I get a page without the list but still with me and my amount as the "latest donation", but if I click the down-arrow and then on "General Operating Cost", then I am being shown the list of "recent donations".

I clicked the anonymous box and didn't see any of that. Maybe you need to lock in the anonymous. where you don't have an option.

@Marie62 I can't see anything like that. I can only see a box to put in the amount I want to donate, a box with an arrow that asks if I want it to be in dollars, Euros, Australian dollars etc., then the box with General Operating Cost. That's all I see. But I'm on a desktop so that might make a big difference over what someone on a phone or iPad might see.

It's interesting that you can see more than that.

I don't remember if I clicked to do it anonymously. I hope I did because my donation was in my old name which is sadly still my legal one...for now.

Lexxi, it shows your local user id, not your dead name, no worries, but the list has to go anyway.

Agreed. Just need some time to figure out how to make that happen. Be patient.

Try again, this might be me not making myself clear. You should seen an entry called "Donations" with a down-arrow to the right. If you click on the text "Donations" you should be taken to a page where you DO NOT see a list and only see a progress bar and one but button that allows you to donate.
However, if you click on the down-arrow next to the "Donations" text in the top menu here, then a drop-down list with one entry is shown with "General Operating Cost" and if you click on that text (i.e. GOC), then you will be taken to a page that has more content than the one described aboe and has a list of recent donations on the list.
Do you see this?

Thanks Katie!
Just a point of clarification please. It says that the donation drive ends in about 4 weeks, but how long will the $425 last? Is it a year, quarter or month?
Thanks!

On my desktop it's a little different...but I did discover exactly what you were talking about. Thanks for the head's up.

Sorry I got confuddled there for a minute. lol

The link seemed to be on every page for a while, then I thought it had totally disappeared. I eventually noticed the new link to Donations at the very top. Very appropriate!
Thanks!

Yes, I had a few minutes before I went to bed last night to fix that.

I'm also in contact with the donation widget developer about removing names from the donation list. There is no setting in the widget to allow this, but he believes that the template container file can be modified to do this. I'll make it happen once he advises a method.
