Paypal donate button?! PLEASE HELP ASAP!

Postby Maha » Fri Sep 19, 2008 3:37 pm

Hey everyone! I hope you all are doing well!

I'm having a major problem uploading a paypal donate button onto my website and I need help ASAP! When you go to www.myuma.com , you should see a section that says "Donate" (it's to the right-hand side of the section that says "Latest News"). A paypal "donate" button should be there, but, unfortunately, it's not. For some reason, whenever I insert the html coding that paypal gives me to enable the paypal donation button to shown on the website in the "custom output" section of the module editor, it NEVER posts the button on the actual website; just the HTML coding as it was put. I even tried clicking the little "HTML" icon in the "custom output" options and putting the Paypal HTML code for the button in there, but nothing comes up on the website when I save everything. :( This is really frustrating, and I don't know what to do!

Everything was working fine before; I just wanted to add some text under the donation button in the module editor, but it ended up erasing the ENTIRE thing after I saved, and let me only with the text I added!

Also, I know posting a paypal donation button on your website using modules can be done; if you go anywhere else on the website (like if you click "news"), in place of the "Donate" section, you'll see a button from paypal that says "Pay Now". So yes, I know a donate button can be posted with modules, someway, somehow.

Am I doing anything wrong when it comes to the HTML coding? Am I posting it in the wrong section of the module editor?!

What should I do? I need this done ASAP..please help!

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">

Trying this out to see if it works.

looks like it is working now. But here is a module that can help you put paypal donation on the page by just type in your paypal account email. It is called "Easy Paypal Donation".

check it out. Hope it helps.
