feat: show all donations in donor wall and use "Anonymous" as the name for anon donors #3826
As a NGO using Give, I want to use the donor wall feature, but I want that all the donations appear and use the word "Anonymous Donor" when donors opt to be anonymous.
1/ if we have 10 donors listed on the wall, and their donations add up to $1000, but our Amount Raised shows $1500, that just looks weird. Like maybe we are fudging numbers.
2/ More importantly, if we have anonymous donors, at least we have donors, and other potential donors should see that donors are participating in the campaign. This creates a ‘call to action’ and ‘safety in numbers’ that helps others to decide to participate in an ‘active’ campaign as well.
It would be nice to (maybe optionally) list Anonymous Donors (anonymously, of course)
This could be supported as an additional shortcode argument, like
We might additionally consider another argument called
On the team call we discussed displaying anonymous donations in the donor wall by default. This means if the donation was marked anonymous, then it would display:
This is in line with other platforms such as GoFundMe.
We decided that anonymous comments should not be displayed for privacy purposes. However, mixing anonymous donations without comments and other donations with comments will likely result in a lot of awkward white space in a grid format. In a three-column grid, one comment will stretch the height of the row while anonymous donations will have nothing to fill that space.
This needs further discussion before defining the default behavior.
@mathetos What do you think about displaying anonymous donations by default and concerns over its effect on presentation?
We've had feedback already that the Donor Wall presentation is already lackluster. It might be worth a bit of a UI redesign anyway, and that would make this task far easier.
I think the value to ORGS using Donor Wall to show Anonymous donations without names/faces/comments is the primary concern or goal here. I believe we can get that done and a new design that we're proud of.
