Can't seem to find the answer but sure there must be a simple way to achieve what I need.

On the contribution pages for Civi I would like to show the membership type description for the various membership types that need further explanation to users.

Is there a easy way to enable this or do I need to look at a more custom route?

Thanks in advance for any pointers!

  • Are you trying to achieve the above using Offline membership ? If so then add the source while creating the membership (membership source) – Ramesh - ARTECH Consultancy Jun 24 '19 at 10:23
  • @Ramesh-ARTECHConsultancy Thanks for the reply, I mean on the contribution signup pages themselves? I've added a picture as an example to show what I mean. – EagleUK Jun 24 '19 at 10:53

If you did this as a Price Set you would be able to have some info in the post-field-help, and you can set the 'label' to be different to the membership type if you want eg

and actually the Price Options do have a pre/post help options but they show inline, presumably some minor theming could address that

Currently at https://dmaster.demo.civicrm.org/civicrm/admin/price/field?reset=1&action=browse&sid=10&new=1 but will be flushed within 24 hours

  • Thanks, this works nicely also :). – EagleUK Jul 2 '19 at 8:59

You could certainly put an explanation of the types in the introduction text box which is displayed immediately above the price set


Although the header and footer would allow me to put description above and below it wasn't exactly what I needed.

The best solution for me was leveraging the use of the Civicrm webform integration and adding the required mark up and form alters where I required them to achieve the required display.
