    Not sure if I need to develop a module? Link to this post

    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: http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/reference/modeladmin.
