Display the progress of a Dropcash donation campaign in real time.
Dropcash is a new service for organizing fundraising campaigns. It uses Paypal to handle payments; but, unlike Paypal’s donation buttons, Dropcash lets you specify a target amount, and monitor the progress of donations.
The Dropcash plugin for Textpattern handles the job of displaying a near-real-time progress graph for a specified campaign – see below for an example. It also provides a conditional tag that only displays content when a given donation milestone has been reached. You could use this to hide the body of a Textpattern article and have it automatically published when enough donations have been received, for example.
