The first step is to add a new page to the website.
Open the website editor and click on the Add Page button at the button of the editor sidebar:

The new page will open automatically.
Move the mouse over the editor sidebar again and select Elements -> OI
You can then drag the Solicit Items from the list onto the page.
You can also add extra text and image items to this page to provide more information to your donors.
Donors will now be able to enter the details of their item, and then provide images and items about themselves

Select the items you want to accept and then click on Accept Selected Items
