PayPal post question

Can someone tell me why the $10 donate button doesn’t work.

http://www.edgeoutreach.com/donate.html

Each vertical stack of Donate buttons is in an html box.( I tried it first in a table but have exactly the same problem.) In the second box that begins with the $250 Donate button it works fine.

If I copy the $10 code and insert a return and put the same $10 code the second $10 Donate button will work.

More important than why this is happening is to find out what markup code will fix the problem.

Could this be to do with the radio buttons you have on the page - try it without them. This may be causing a form error as each PP donate button is a form element in itself and the fact that the page has a form action on it screwing it up (I think).

Don’t try to fix problems with more markup code! What you need to do
is find out what the problem is anf fix it at the source.

Fortunately I think I know where your problem comes from. You’re
adding your custom Paypal button code by going to the Page menu and
selecting HTML Markup, aren’t you? That’s actually normally meant for
inserting code that doesn’t produce visible objects - such as
JavaScript functions, PHP form-parsing stuff, and so on.

Go back there and remove that code, then go to the Insert menu and
choose Markup Item. This added a 100x100px markup item object to your
page and opens the Markup code window. Paste your Paypal code in
here, then resize the item to match the size that the code says the
button will be. Drag into position and see how that works for ya.

Actually I did use the Markup Item from the Insert Menu. I first inserted the radio button, my dollar amount in text, and then, from the Insert Menu - Markup Item. Did all buttons the same and it’s just the first one in the first html box that doesn’t work. The $250 button is a new box, first button and it works fine. It’s just weird and I’d sure like to clear the problem.

Also, when I insert a Markup Item from the Insert Menu I get the HTML Markup window not a 100x100 markup item object.

OK OK I see how you’re getting the 100x100 markup object. I still don’t see why all the donate buttons work except the first one.

As I said I think it is a clash with the radio buttons which are form elements. Don’t use them unless they have a function.

I would create a table to hold the $10 or whatever text in one cell with the markup item pasted into an adjoining cell.

You have a form action with empty parameters that isn’t going to help. Take it out. I think it is automatically created when you insert a radio button.



div id="PageDiv" style="position:relative; min-height:100%; margin:auto; width:980px">

	<form action="">
