When a donation page is listed in a website's supporter nav and public profiles are enabled, clicking on the donate button via that public profile should add a recruiter link snippet to the normal donate page URL.
Instead of the donor going https://slug.nationbuilder.com/donate, they land on https://slug.nationbuilder.com/donate?recruiter_ID=[[signup.ID]]
While the donor experience is the same, the result of that URL snippet makes the public profile a fundraiser. This is outlined in NationBuilder's utilize public profiles and how recruiters are tracked how tos.
It appears that specifically with the Action theme, when the fundraiser goal is enabled on a profile
the link attached to that goal on the public profile does not contain the ?recruiter_ID=[[signup.ID]] snippet. This means donations through public profiles need to be manually linked to a fundraiser after the fact instead of automatically attributing leading to confusion.
Thanks Thomas I will let our design team know!
