ok , i got the button and the code into the editor, by saving the button
as a gif. but the image and the url came up in my posts section. how do i move it to the sidebar. i don’t think the button is working . why is this so complex?
thank you for the support
but the image and the url came up in my posts section. how do i move it to the sidebar.
I soul switch to the Text (HTML) editor and carefully copy all of the code. then I would paste it into a text widget and after I was sure it worked I would go back and delete the draft post.
edit “soul” was meant to be “would”
thank you for all your help. i finally got the button on the sidebar. I assume it takes a little time for it to be activated
You have a problem with the URL.
Look at this incorrect URL:
Now look at the correct one:
how can this be………..i took the url directly from the paypal site
do you mean i have to do this over again?
If you want it to work, yes. The first version has an extra https in it, and will not work.
Do i have to delete the image already on my side bar and if so how
do i do that?
No, you just go into the text widget and remove the first http:// from that particular link. Double check all the URLs in the code to make sure there’s only one http in them. Then Save the widget and close it.
I did that and the button still does not work ……… any ideas?/
It appears you took out the link entirely instead of just the extra http. Now all it has is the image and a link closing tag, not the link opening tag that should go in front of the image code.
