Can I post donation button?

  1. Can I post donation button? Paypal says to post on administration page? as Html/ Can you please provide me with suggestions. ps
    I think I need more blogging school as I sometimes end up with things on the wrong page but I am really glad you are here along with the whole blogging world. xx b

    The blog I need help with is barbaragreenemannandlucy.wordpress.com.

  2. You will want to follow the instructions here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    Take a look through that page and let me know if you have any further questions. I'll be happy to help.

  3. rootjosh I've been doing this for days and now i'm sobbing. I tried every everything 1000 times and called paypal but it still isn't working i made two drafts and there's a 3rd. I'm over blogged and trying so hard to save Lucy the Edmonton elephant.Please help.

  4. Calling PayPal produces instructions for code we cannot use on WordPress.COM blogs, and can only be used on WordPress.ORG sites.

    Following the guide rootjosh posted the link to in our WordPress.COM support docs religiously without trying to add in anything or leave anything out works on WordPress.COM blogs.

  5. Also note that when I click your username link check out what happens
    barbaragreenemann That's an invalid link.

    The valid link is http://barbaragreenemannandlucy.wordpress.com/

  6. root I went and put it in text then in fullpage, then back in visual and no button came. Its even published. i had to buy a new keyboard cuz the letters came off and i only use two fingers. I'm too old for this. please give me more tips, you can see I'm trying so hard. thanks Barb

  7. Let's start with your linking your username to the correct URL because the one you have been using invalid. Here’s how to link your username to a blog registered under the same username account Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Primary Blog. Where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL http://barbaragreenemannandlucy.wordpress.com/ for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    I have a new keyboard and it is doing weird things like making everything blue as if to copy. and the mouse has a circle or picks up a frame on its tip/

  14. how do I find administrator text ? thanks

  15. Are we having snacks? lol

  16. What step of the instructions I linked to were you able to make it through before you encountered a problem? What was the exact problem?

  17. Hi this is my confusion. I could not edit it in paypal they said I should try dreamweaver, this is getting to hard and I k ow it's not. Can I go to my Blog in the administrator post site Lucy in text, but here it won't let me paste , so I have to paste in visual, the text appears but never the icon. Thank you root josh.

  18. Do not listen to the Paypal people. You should not be doing anything with dreamweaver.

    The instructions on the page I have linked to are the exact ones you should follow.

    Can you paste in the code you are trying to use here? Click the "code" button, paste in your code, then click the code button again. Then click "submit".

  20. And is that the link you got in step #9 of the instructions here:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

  21. HI root . The instructions say to paste it on your website or web progra. so I post it as a blog in text. But I think that posts ok. but you said hit the coded button again and that is in Pappal I saw a page with the buttons on ot should I get the button code from there?
    I spent hours on this yesterday as well. so I post it in my wordpress blog correct?

  22. The button "image" will not automatically appear. You need to upload one as mentioned in step #12

  23. Hi Root I worked all day still no button.I go and copy from wp help . button code. I paste the code in text, then I switch to visual one time it was there. Usually there is the text only. but then I have to leave page to get paypal code to attach to button that is not there.?
    help
    I love your persistance and appreciate this. I took blogging 1o1 because you are good teachers but I want a button. My birthday is on the 13th , 66 yrs old and I want this button . Artists have the job of poverty. but now I can be a famous blogger Don Charisma. y\thank you.
    I did forget about the code, no I did that above is what I did.

  24. I just took a look at https://barbaragreenemannandlucy.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=267&action=edit and the code doesn't seem to be correct.

    Please make sure that you carefully follow the instructions at http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal and end up with a URL as described in step 9. You can give me this URL and I'll generate the correct code for your donate page.

    Looking forward to your reply.
