htmo code doesn’t work
Adding the html code for simple ‘donate’ button results in the html code itself on the post, not the button, i.e.??: https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=QZAXP7D8FU7SQ
Have you followed the instructions outlined here: https://wordpress.com/support/paypal/view-all/
It would be helpful if you can provide the URL of the site in question.
Please let us know.
Yes, followed instructions and the correct button appeared on the post draft but after the update it doen’t appear on the actual post.? So its either some html code mistake or its required to upgrade before it will work.
Thanks for your help!
What’s the page/post where you added the button? We’ll have a look.
Its at the end of a rather lengthy new item I copied, here:
Hm, make sure you’re following the steps at https://wordpress.com/support/paypal/
That’s the only method we currently support for PayPal buttons.
Thanks, thought I did just so..?
Would you please reply here with the full HTML code you attempted to add?
Make sure you use the “code” button above.
This code doesn’t appear in the post now, I don’t know why?
<form action=”https://www.paypal.com/donate” method=”post” target=”_top”>
<input type=”hidden” name=”hosted_button_id” value=”QZAXP7D8FU7SQ” />
<input type=”image” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif” border=”0″ name=”submit” title=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!” alt=”Donate with PayPal button” />
<img src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif” width=”1″ height=”1″=” border=”0″ src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_CA/i/scr/pixel.gif” width=”1″ height=”1″
Replace YOUR PAYPAL LINK HERE with the link you got in Step 1
Replace IMAGE URL HERE with the image URL you chose in Step 2
Feel free to add alt text for “Your alt text here”. This is the text that will display in the event the image cannot be displayed.
Remember to leave the quotes around both links and the alt-text!
Yeah, that won’t work here without a paid Business or eCommerce plan.
For lower plans, including the Free plan, you’ll need to follow the steps exactly as detailed at https://wordpress.com/support/paypal/
Ok I’ll give it a try, thanks.
So following that instruction I added this code, but what is published is the html code for the img ONLY and not even the donate url?
That’s weird when I send you the code the message box wipes it out..?
Please paste here exactly what you’re trying to use, and use the “code” button so the forum doesn’t mess it up.
`<a href=”https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=QZAXP7D8FU7SQ”> </a>
<a img=”” src=”https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif” width=”1″ height=”1″ =”=”” border=”0″ alt=”thanks much!”> </a>
<a href="https://www.paypal.com/donate?hosted_button_id=QZAXP7D8FU7SQ"> <img src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif" alt="Click here to donate ... thanks much!"></a>
