Common Questions:

Question: I added the wording “Click here to see if your company will match your donation” and linked it to the new page with Double the Donation’s matching gift information. How do I make the link open a new window rather than opening the matching gift search in the same window?
Answer: Go back to the editor where you typed in “Click here to see if your company will match your donation” and open iModules® hyperlink manager (the icon with the globe / chain). Change the target to “New Window”.

Question: I’m trying to add Double the Donation’s matching gift plugin directly into the donation form but the search box isn’t appearing. Please help.
