This tab provides the basic settings to configure your Give plugin. It is used to establish default transaction- and account-related pages on your site, as well as currency and country settings.

 

The General Settings Tab

Success Page: Select the page where donors are taken after a successful transaction from this dropdown. This page should contain the [give_receipt] shortcode, at the least. For more info on this and other shortcodes, see the documentation here.

By default, Give creates a page named “Donation Confirmation” with that shortcode already on it. If you’d like to take donors to a different page, you may select it here. Note that you must first publish the page before it will show up in the dropdown input.

Failed Donation Page: Select the page you want to take donors to if their donation fails from this dropdown. By default, Give creates a page with a basic error message named “Transaction Failed” for this purpose. The selected page does not need any special shortcode on it, but keep in mind that this is the page that all failed transactions will go to, so keep the language general and applicable to all Give forms on your site. If you’d like to take donors to a different page, you may select it here. Note that you must first publish the page before it will show up in the dropdown input.

Donation History Page:  Select the page you want to use to show users a complete donation history from this dropdown. Logged-in or email-authenticated users (see the documentation on Email Access here) are able to see their donation history on this page. This page must include the [donation_history] shortcode. See here for more info on this and other shortcodes.

Base Country: Select the country in which your site is operated from the dropdown.

Base State/Province: The states/provinces of your selected country will be populated in this dropdown. This will be the default state/province for any forms that support billing addresses. It can be left blank if you prefer not to have a default state.

Currency Settings

The global Currency settings allow you to configure which currency all your donations will be received and reported in; as well as the formatting of the currency values.
