    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.

    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/

    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.

    where do I copy the button info from paypal. I used my blog Lucy,did it in text, went full page ,saved and then did visual but nothing happened.

    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/

    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?

    #1718259

    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.

    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”.
