Hi Deb,

(FYI - I moved this topic to CiviCRM How To)

Here are the steps to add a widget to one of your pages (even the information page for the contribution page itself):

  1. Navigate Contributions -> Manage Contributions.
  2. Select Contribution Widget from the Configure menu on the right-hand side of the contribution page listing. (Oh! See that it's all been configured! Excellent!)
  3. Scroll down and click the Select Code link under the text area field that has all that code in it. ;)
  4. Right-click on the highlighted text and click Copy or press Ctrl+C to copy the code.
  5. Navigate to the page where you want the widget to reside.
  6. Within edit mode, click the Source button on the WYSIWYG editor.
  7. This is where it's a little tricky because you have to paste the code where you want the widget to go in relation to the text.

    For example:

    If you want it to go on the information page for the Let's Build This Together page, you can click and put your cursor just above the beginning code:

    Code: Select all
    <p align="center">
       <strong>Join Habitat for Humanity and the Central PA....

    And press Ctrl+V to paste the code.

    This will place the widget above the first paragraph.
  8. Click the Save button to save your changes.
