I connected WordPress to Stripe which is a payment collection service, and I have put Aussie Ark’s account number in Stripe. I am now using the GiveWP WordPress Plugin instead of Smart donations because Smart Donations was difficult to use. I am also using Stripe instead of Paypal because Paypal was also difficult to set up and use. Also, Stripe allowed me to directly send funds to Aussie Ark’s bank account as a one step process, which is better than Paypal because in Paypal Giving Fund, the money would only be sent once a month to Aussie Ark.I need to inform Aussie Ark that I am going to be depositing donations into their bank account directly.
I started with a theme called Maywood but the layout wasn’t to my standards. Next, I tried ‘Twenty Nineteen’ but the font was hard to read, so I finally decided on Exford, where the font was readable and for my GAT diary, the featured picture was underneath the heading.
I wanted to change the notification settings for the blog so I went to the settings and I made it so that WordPress sends me an email as soon as someone subscribes to my blog and when someone re-blogs one of my posts.
I have chosen to make a website to raise awareness about Tasmanian Devils as their numbers are going down and lots of people don’t know about them. I chose this topic because not many people know about Tasmanian Devils and I want to prove that they aren’t what their name describes them.
I already know that Tasmanian Devils are on the brink of extinction from the tumour disease (facial cancer). The Devils may die out if an effort to save them isn’t made. They are also vital to the native Tasmanian ecosystem. This is so because a dead animal for instance, a Tasmanian quoll, would take months to rot away on its own. however, a Tasmanian Devil would eat the carrion to the bone , making it less hungry and the environment less smelly!
Through this website, I hope to teach about the Tasmanian Devils and raise enough money to fund Tasmanian Devil breeding or rehabilitation programs.
