This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (7 votes - 4.71 average) Installs: 175
Released: 16 Apr 2006 Last Update: 05 Aug 2006 Downloads: 725
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Hack Description

This hack is the easiest way to add the ability to accept PayPal donations for your site.
You simply upload 2 php files, and a couple of images and then import the product XML and thats it!
No messing round with template edits or anything like that, its all done for you!

:banana: Also includes a vB CMPS Module so you can use this hack on your vB CMPS pages. :banana:
The vB CMPS is basicly just a straight port of DementedMindz excellent Paypal Module (dropdown) On vBa CMPS modified so that it can be setup from the AdminCP.
Many thanks to DementedMindz for allowing me to mod his module.

Some features of this hack are:
  • No need to modify or edit the standard vB files!
  • Automaticly adds 'Donate' link on Navbar next to the FAQ link if desired.
  • Simple once off setup in the Admin Control Panel.
  • You can change all text and headings from the Admin CP.
  • All PayPal settings such as preferred currency are set in the Admin CP.
  • The Donors forum username is on the emailed receipt from PayPal.
  • People do not have to be registered on your site to donate.
  • You and toggle the PayPal Verified seal on or off.
  • Its a product so no need to redo hacks when you upgrade vB next time.
  • Works with default IE settings!
  • vB CMPS Modue Available
  • Configurable Thank you page for donors
  • Default / suggested donation amount if desired
  • Works on vB 3.6 without any modifications
Well thats about it for the moment. I may add more features later, if there is a demand for them.

Please note that you have to have either a Business or Premiere PayPal account, else you will need to upgrade to one of these before you can accept donations. Its easy to do, just follow the guide on the PayPal site.

Also note that this is a product, not a plug-in. You must import it using the import product feature in the Admin CP.

I will try and offer support, but work and family commitments mean I dont have much free time.

This is a work in progress and currently a beta version.
This script has been confirmed as working on
  • vB 3.5.3
  • vB 3.5.4
  • vB 3.6.0 Beta 1
  • vB 3.6.0 Beta 2
  • vB 3.6.0 RC1
  • vB 3.6.0
It should work on earlier versions of vB 3.5 as well, but I have no verification of that.

Known Bugs
None on a standard vB 3.5.X install. However, if you use custom templates the automatic donate link insertion may not work. If thats the case, you will need to edit the navbar template manually as listed in the 2nd post.

This has been tested in a totally clean install of vB 3.5.4 and in my live and hacked site as well.

Credits
Huge thanks to DementedMindz who made my V1.31 code XML compliant

I have been inspired by Cloudrunners PayPal Donations and Cybernetec's Cyb Paypal. Both have their good points, but neither were quite what I wanted, which is what inspired me to write this.

Thanks also to Paul M and hambil in helping me work out how to insert the donate link without any manual edits.
Also, espically to DementedMindz for his assistance, advice, and use of his vB CMPS module.
Much appreciested guys

And finally, a huge thanks to Boofo who was a great help in making the 1.30 release and supplied the new template, and much help.

Manual Template Edit
(if using modded navbar)

If your using a custom Navbar (or none at all) or just want to have the link to the donations page somewhere else, just add the following code into the desired position in your template.

Hmmm......
I never thought of that.
Will do something so it changes depending on what currency you set in the Admin CP.
