    Donation/Comment Form or Feed

    Asked by cwatkins on September 30, 2016 at 05:04 PM

    I've been trying to figure out a way to have customers fill out a basic form with a message, add a donation and then submit and have that message appear on a feed on my webpage. So far, I've found a widget that lets people post comments but It doesn't allow for submitting a donation. I've found lots of 3rd party form builders that allow customers to pay or donate using paypal and whatnot, but none of them have comment/live feed capabilities.

    I can do all these things separately but I can't find a form builder or widget that allows for all in one submission and posts the message...

     

    All I need is:

    Parent Name

    Athlete's Name

    Name of School

    Message to Athlete

    Donation

    Submit.

    and for that message to appear on the bottom of the page once submitted and paid for....

     

    Anyone have any idea how to help me?

    Were you using the Facebook Comment widget? link https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/facebook_comments

    You can use this widget to post the feedback on your FB page.

    You can setup the form to post both the donation amount  and the feedback message in your FB comment.

    All you need to do is use the Calculate conditions to copy both the message and donation to a separate message box (TextArea field) that you will used in the FB comment section.

    Example:

    Condition to create the comment section

    You can hide the Feedback message on the form so that user will not see it

     

    Here is a demo form https://www.jotformpro.com/form/62738449218970    you can test.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your help, but

    I also need the message to post to the page as view-able content on our website once they have paid and submitted....

    It seems your last question didn't get through to our forum software, but we have received it as an email, so I'll quote it here for clarity:

    Is there a twitter widget that lets people post to our twitter through our page?

    We do not have such a widget, and you can check out all of our Twitter related widgets on the following page:

    https://widgets.jotform.com/search/twitter

    However, I believe you can achieve such a connection between a JotForm form and your Twitter by using Zapier as an intermediary service:
