Now, you will go to your website’s WordPress dashboard, and add the donation button to your site. Login and use the navigation on the left of the WordPress Dashboard to find the page where you would like the button to appear.  Your button can appear on either a blog post or a page within your site. You can navigate to the correct section by choosing either “Posts” if you would like the button to appear on a post, or “Pages” if it is to appear on a page. In both of those sections, you can choose whether the donation button will appear on an existing post or page, or if you’ll add a new post or page that will include the button. Once you decide the location of your donation button, navigate to the WYSIWYG Editor.
