How do I get the CrowdRise widget on my self hosted WordPress website or blog?

We want our widgets to be awesome and, most importantly, to update in real time. The only way to make that happen is to embrace javascript instead of plain old HTML. That means the widget needs to be installed by someone who knows a little about programming.

To find your CrowdRise widget code:

1. Visit your fundraiser or event
2. Click the Edit tab
3. Click My Fundraiser Widget on the right side
4. Copy that code and change YOURSITE.COM to the domain where the widget will be inserted

Here are instructions for inserting our widget into the sidebar of Wordpress websites:

1. Select "Appearance" from your Wordpress admin page
2. Under the Appearance section choose "Editor"*
3. Then from the right-hand side select "Sidebar (sidebar.php)". This will allow you to edit your "Sidebar template"
4. Insert the javascript in the code and click "Update File". You’ll want someone to do this who, at a minimum, knows a little html and javascript

*Note: Some installations of Wordpress don't have the “Editor” option because the source code is managed by their web host. In this case, you’ll need to get in touch with your web host and ask them for assistance.
