Hi,

On my site I have a donations page.

Every month, the admin gets a long list of donators and the list is divided by donation amount range like:
$1 - $99
$100 - $999
$1000 - $9999

etc.

I would like to create a form for the admin user to create these donations.

So the form will have fields:

Text field: Name
Dropdown: Donation Amount Range

Button: Add Another

Do I need to create a module for it?

I don't want to use a new page type as the process of creating a page is longer than I want since each donation is one field and a selection for a dropdown list.

So I think I need to develop a module, and would like to hear opinions and a refference to a good tutorial that can help me with that?

Unless you plan on using this for multiple sites you won't need to create a module. I think creating a new ModelAdmin section in the CMS would be your best solution. Check out the tutorial here: [url]http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/reference/modeladmin[/url].
