How to Add Fundraise Up Code and Elements to Google Sites

Google Sites is a user-friendly website builder that allows you to create and customize your own website. However, due to its limitations, such as the absence of a <head> section, adding Fundraise Up Elements to your Google Sites website requires a specific approach. This guide will walk you through the process of adding Fundraise Up Elements to your Google Sites website step by step.

Step 1: Obtain the Fundraise Up Installation Code

  1. Log in to your Fundraise Up Dashboard.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Installation.
  3. Copy the Installation Code.

Step 2: Create and Copy Element Embed Code

  1. In a separate browser tab, go to the Elements tab.
  2. Create the desired Element (e.g., Donation Form, Donation Button) or select an existing one.
  3. Note the Embed Element code, which you will need to copy later.

Step 3: Access Your Google Sites Page

  1. Open Google Sites and navigate to the desired page where you want to add the Fundraise Up element.

Step 4: Insert Custom HTML

  1. In the Google Sites editor, go to the Insert tab.
  2. Click on the Embed option (represented by the "<>" icon).
  3. A Custom HTML dialog box will appear.

Step 5: Paste Installation Code and Element Embed Code

  1. In the Custom HTML dialog box, paste the Fundraise Up Installation Code first.
  2. Below the Installation Code, paste the Element Embed Code you copied.
    • Note: Each Fundraise Up Element you add to your website should include both the Installation Code and the Element Embed Code.

Step 6: Save and Publish

  1. Click on the Next and Save buttons to save the changes.
  2. In the upper right corner of the Google Sites editor, click on the Publish button to make the changes live on your website.

Limitations and Considerations

  • Overlay Elements like Reminders, Message Bars, Social Proofs, and Popups are not compatible with Google Sites due to the absence of a <head> section.
