How to Add a Recurring Donation Payment Form in Joomla

For all you Joomla users out there, here is a quick guide on how to embed your Donorbox donation forms into your Joomla sites:


1. Because we are using an embed code instead of a preset donation module, you will need to make sure your Joomla website allows iframe codes before you copy and paste your donation form embed code, as they are prohibited by default. On your Joomla administrator page, start by clicking on the “Extensions” tab, then the “Plugins” button.
