You can add new pledges through Pledges → Add Pledge in the WordPress Administration Panel.
Unlike other post types, pledges do not contain most of the same options as standard posts. They support only a few specific fields.
Pledge Options are found below the title on the Edit Pledge page. If the Pledge Options are not visible, make sure they are checked inside the Screen Options area at the top.
If you are adding a new pledge, make sure you have saved the post before editing pledge options. Otherwise, the pledge options will not be visible.
