IgnitionDeck | Project Settings

There are a couple settings that need to be set for a default purchase page that all projects will use and also a setting if you are using the IgnitionDeck Echelon version of the plugins with a non-IgnitionDeck theme.

Default Purchase Page

A default purchase page must be created regardless of which version of the plugins are being used (i.e. free, IgnitionDeck Echelon, IgnitionDeck Enterprise) in order for the payment form to be dynamically generated based on the project and reward level being supported.

  1. Navigate to Pages » Add New.
  2. Create a page that will be your purchase page and publish it.
    • NOTE: If you are not using an IgnitionDeck theme, create the page and add the shortcode [idc_checkout] . Do not add any other content to this page.
    • If you are using an IgnitionDeck theme, the shortcode is unnecessary as the plugins will populate this automatically. You can leave the page blank.
  3. Navigate to IgnitionDeck » Project Settings.
  4. Use the Default Purchase Page selector to assign your Purchase Page and click the “Update Settings” button.

External Purchase Pages

It is possible to set each project to use an external payment page such as to a PayPal donation button or other payment / escrow account. When the supporter clicks on the Support Now button or any reward levels provided in the project, they will be directed to the off-site checkout page automatically.

This option is located in the right hand column of the project form on the admin side of the site (not available for front-end project creators with IgnitionDeck Enterprise).

  1. Set up a payment button and any associated options in the payment provider.
  2. Copy the provided URL of the custom checkout form.
  3. Set the Purchase URL to External URL and paste the copied URL into the field provided.

Important note: any transactions that occur on an external checkout using this method will not be reported back to the IgnitionDeck project. To report progress toward the project's goal, the site administrator will need to manually add the orders via IgnitionDeck » IDCF Orders » Add New.

Non-IgnitionDeck Themes with the free and Echelon versions of IgnitionDeck

If your site is using an existing theme and you do not wish to switch to an IgnitionDeck theme when you introduce the IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding plugins to your site, the option to insert the project template will happen automatically as you make your way through the IgnitionDeck wizard.

You will also see an option in the IgnitionDeck » Project Settings tab to "Automatically insert project template". This should be checked in order for the IgnitionDeck project post template to be used to populate the projects on your site.

Troubleshooting: if you see 2 copies of the project content inside the project page, deactivate the automatic project template insertion in IgnitionDeck » Project Settings.
