We know sometimes you want to add offline donations, especially during Giving Days.
There are a number of ways to do this and it depends, if you want them to actually appear as comments on the page. We will step you through both solutions
1. I want to add an amount to the amount raised but not have a comment or name associated
This is the easiest way. You just click on the cog that controls the live thermometer bar (see below) and add the offset amount. Note the offset is a cumulative total, so you need to bear this in mind. The close it and click publish and it will have updated
2. I want to add an offline amount and want it to be attributed to a name and potentially comment on the donation page.
When you are ready to add an offline amount, click on the donation box cog, and goto Pledge. To add an offline donation, we are going to enable the pledge button but are not going to publish the page (because then everyone would be able to see that).
So, goto pledge, and click the plus sign and then exit out of the donation box. The key here is now to save the page (not publish). This will give ONLY YOU a version (when it finishes saving) which has the pledge button on it. No-one else will see it as you have not published.
Please use the page which pops up when the page has published - that page will have the pledge button on it
So, go ahead and put through the donation using the pledge button and then when finished, go into the donation box and remove the pledge box :)
