e-Commerce, Donations

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 ...

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
Didn't have to use support
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.


Works like a Charm

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 :)

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
