VERSION 1.7 for Joomla 2.5.x & Joomla 3.2.x Now Released

Donation Thermometer is a module with an editable image of a thermometer similar to what you would have seen at Church fund raising drives. The original module was based on an open source script creation of Arkie.Net but has now been completely remodelled from the ground up eliminating the need for GD Library. The width, height, funding goal, current amount raised, date last updated and currency can all be adjusted in the module's parameters. As well as a few other options including caching, module suffix, html pre-text and post-text. This is my first attempt at a joomla extension so go easy on me :) If you know how to improve this module (like implementing IPN integration with paypal, so that the thermometer auto updates with each donation) please let me know.

If anyone would like to contribute to the development of this module, please contact me and I'll add you as a project developer on joomlacode.

Nice - But ...

Functionality
If you look at this extension as an improved submit button then you are going to like it. However, you have to update it manually.
Ease of use
Easy
Support
Didn't have to use support
Documentation
OK
I used this to: Don't expect much. This is a nice Donate Button. You have to update it MANUALLY. Let me be clear - it does not have access to PayPal DB and it does not update automatically. In this case, there's not much logic behind this extension.

Simple and Effective

Love it!

This is a great module, easy to use and for the non-profit sites I've set up adds a visual element that people love.

I'm hoping it will be upgraded to 3.0 soon so I can carry on using it.
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review. The module has been updated to reflect its J3.2.x compatibility. I'm glad that you've found it useful and hope that you continue to use it to help support the non-profit sites you've been so good in setting up. Keep up the great work :)

Great module

This module is a simple and effective tool. The css can be easily changed either in admin or in the php files.
Our XBOX 360 Community needed a way to keep track of our donations so that they felt comfortable with their donations. This Module has done just that.



Easy to install and configure, we have it pointing directly to our paypal account no problems installing and configuring it at all!



Even the styling was simple to configure to match my site. I can't thank you enough Jodee! I will be sending you a donation for sure! Thanks a lot!



By the way, no Cons on this Module! Yeah Baby! Yeah!

Great mod easy to install!

Works great! Very easy to use. Nice to see in next version a link to user who donated or maybe a donation page. Great job!

Great Tool!

I really like the simplicity of display and ease of use.



Question - is it possible to display the goal and amount achieved with commas? When I put commas in the back end the % of goal goes wonky.

Fast and easy to install and configure. Since it has been a year since someone reviewed this I thought I would to keep it relevant.



Great module, using it on a Cub Scout and Girl Scout web page.
Owner's reply: thanks for that :)
Hi,

I just searching for donation module to show the current donation gathered for my Joomla site. And found this,

Donation Thermometer. I love it because we can show our current gathered and our goal.

The graphic is simple but understandable.. ^^



Good Job.



Maybe on the next module, we can get another graphic for the bar. Just like Battery graphic.



Thanks a lot for The Excellent Module.

Great job

Excellet Module!

I have watched this module develop into a solid piece of code that delivers on it's intended purpose and improves on that delivery with every new iteration.
The module works very well for our purposes, and the update to 1.5 native is very much appreciated.



Two things keep me from marking it as excellent.

1) The code uses php shortcuts which don't work in strict php environments.

2) The code forces the use of a currency symbol. If tracking the number of volunteers, for example, this isn't necessary. Leaving symbol blank, however, brings in the $ sign as the default symbol.



Overall, great work!
Owner's reply: Thanks heaps for the encouraging words :) As you recommended, I have fixed the php shortcuts. And on your 2nd point... The currency symbol will keep on filling the form in the backend of your site as will the rest of the fields with their respective default data from the XML file. If you change these they will remain changed. Although if you want them blank, submit the form with the relevant fields blank, and this will be reflected on your sites frontend. However when you return to the backend they will be repopulated by the default values. In your case you could either edit the modules XML file and remove the $ from the currency fields default data, or you could simply blank out the $ each time you update the modules backend. Hope this helps. For further help please visit the support page listed in the modules details.
