How to Add a Recurring Donation Payment Form in Joomla

For all you Joomla users out there, here is a quick guide on how to embed your Donorbox donation forms into your Joomla sites:

Because we are using an embed code instead of a preset donation module, you will need to make sure your Joomla website allows iframe codes before you copy and paste your donation form embed code, as they are prohibited by default.


For TinyMCE Editor


Step 1

On your Joomla administrator page, start by clicking on the “Extensions” tab, then the “Plugins” button.

How To The Embed Donation Form


Step 1

First off, sign up on Donorbox and get started. Now that you have allowed iframe codes on your website, go to your Donorbox dashboard and find the campaign you wish to embed on your site. Click the “<> Embed Codes ” button.

Step 2

You can edit some of the default settings in your form here, like setting a default donation amount or recurring option. As you change the settings, you will see the code automatically adjust itself.

When you’re happy with the settings, copy the embed code for your form. This code will be pasted in your Joomla site later on.

Go back to your Joomla administrator page, and create a new article by clicking on the “New Article” button at the top of the left-hand sidebar.
