Using the Plugin

Funraise's WordPress plugin enables you to add donation forms to your pages with shortcodes. There are two display options:

Button Launcher

This option will display a button on your page that will launch the donation form popup. We highly recommend this option because it is mobile-friendly out of the box.

  • The launch button colors will match your form's design settings

  • The launch button label will match your button launcher label as defined in your form editor -> Publish -> Button Launcher -> Step 3: Button Code

[funraise button=your-giving-form-page-url]

Placed Form

This option will display an open donation form embedded directly into your page layout.

[funraise form=your-giving-form-page-url]

Accessing shortcodes in Funraise
