    I have been trying to copy and paste code for a PayPal donation button (html code) into the “Text” widget (because that’s where HTML should go) and the button will not appear.

    It should be a simple copy and paste job. Is there something I don’t know? I’ve noticed that once I save the code in the widget box, the code will change for some reason. Thanks, guys!

    The blog I need help with is crimsonleague.com.

    You must follow this guide to the letter without adding anything to it or altering it in any way. http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/ No other instructions will work.

    I’ve been having the same problem. Trying to copy and paste the code from paypal into my text widget. I’ve follwed the guide by the letter–as far as I can see–and it still shows as html on my webpage, not as a button and drop down list with prices.

    I’ve also had trouble with the “email” tab on paypal (for the email code, instead of website code as the guide suggests). It doesn’t show up. Do I need to use a different browser.

    The website I need help with is http://writerunreality.wordpress.com.

    Could the problem be that it’s a free blog/theme?

    Thanks!

    Paste the exact code you’re using here between backticks so we can analyze that. Also, do you have a Merchant account?
