For instructions on displaying gadget settings, see Gadgets.

The following settings are available for donation goal gadgets:

Goal
The donation goal you are trying to reach. The currency used here is the one selected on the Payment settings screen.

Donation page to link to
Displays a donate button that links to the page you select. You can only choose pages that include a donation form gadget. If you don't want a donate button to appear, select None.

Include in Collected
Choose whether to display all donations or filter the donations by a particular donation field. You may be running multiple fundraising campaigns and need to display a separate progress indicator for each campaign. If you want to filter the donations, you can select any donation field whose type is multiple choice, radio buttons, or dropdown. After you select a donation field, you select a value for that field. For example, if you use a donation field called Fund to allow donors to direct their donations to different funds, you could select the Fund field then choose among possible field values such as Building or Maintenance.

Filter by date
If you want to filter donations by date, choose the start and end dates of the donations you want to include.

Gadget title
If you specify a gadget title, the title will appear specially formatted within the gadget. Depending on the gadget style you choose, the title may appear in a heading box.

For Kaleidoscope themes, use a Headline gadget instead of specifying a gadget title.

Description
A brief description of your fundraising campaign.

Button label
The label that appears on the donate button. The button only appears if you choose a Donation page to link to (above).

Gadget style

Margins

Padding
(Kaleidoscope themes only) The amount of space – in pixels – that appears between the content of the gadget and the outer limits of the gadget. You can set top, bottom, left, and right padding separately. If you have set a fixed height for the gadget, the bottom padding will be ignored.
