WordPress is one of the preferred choices when it comes to choosing a website builder. And for good reason, too! It’s so simple to build a world-class website using their platform. And, the customizable options are practically endless.
There are 2 ways to embed a Donorbox donation form into your WordPress website. You can either use our embedding code – check out this helpful guide. The other option is to use our WordPress donation plugin. And that’s what we will be showing you in this blog post.
To begin, go to your WordPress dashboard. Find the “Plugins” tab on the left-hand sidebar and click “Add New”.
In the WordPress plugin search bar, type “Donorbox” and press enter.
Once you have found the Donorbox WordPress donation plugin, click “Install Now”.
Once the plugin has been installed, click to activate it.
Now, go to your Donorbox campaigns page and find the campaign you wish to embed on your WordPress site. Right-click the “Preview Campaign Page” link and select the “Copy link address” option.
Head back to your WordPress dashboard. In the left-hand sidebar, click on “Settings”, and then “Donorbox”.
Paste your campaign URL into the appropriate textbox, and click “Save Changes”.
Go back to the WordPress page editor of your donation page.
Make sure you are on the text editor for your post (and not the visual editor). Type in one of the following shortcodes to embed the donation form using the WordPress donate plugin:
- Don’t forget to replace “nonprofit campaign” with your own campaign name and URL.
- If you choose to use one of the shortcodes with a URL, then that campaign URL will be used. Otherwise, the default URL you entered in the plugin settings will be used.
- Using one of the [donate-with-info] shortcodes will include the campaign description and legal disclaimer that you drafted on Donorbox.
