Donations Drive!

Postby Tim » Thu May 12, 2016 3:47 pm

Hello all,

Since the crash in January, I've held off on having ads on the site. I can continue running things that way, but I'll need to do periodic donation drives to make it work. I'm working on adding a "Donations" link at the top of the page (it's showing up in the subsilver, but not in prosilver for some reason). But I've also copied the link down below. Please donate to help support the costs of running this place.

Thanks!

That's probably going to hurt the donations total.

Has anyone else tried? It's working fine for me, so I'm wondering if there's some sort of weird group permission thing going on.

Also, I did get a notification...

Tim has donate “$2.00”.


And then the total bar at the bottom of the page says there's only been $1 donated.

Yeah, I donated $2.00 to my own cause, but the software apparently displays a floor because it is showing the amount after Paypal takes out their cut.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I get the error message. Otoh, I was able to authorize the last message about being a regular user.

I really don't get what is going on here. I figured out I had to set permissions for this stupid [expletive] extension. So I did that. That let me see the link to look at the Donors in the list of links at the top of the page. But it still only shows me the donations link when I'm logged in as a founder. I set that permission for everyone else, but it just isn't helping.

Frankly, I'm about to give up on the damned thing.

Can someone update me on whether they see the donations link next to FAQ at the top of the page and if I've removed the mod permissions for most users?

Sweet!

Nothing like having to go into the database to manage things. The extension installed itself with an index of 0, so it screwed up permissions on not only itself, but many other things, as well.
