    The rules for donate buttons is one per theme thread in the first post of the thread, not allowed in signature, too spammy I'll see if I can get someone to explain how you link it up

    Login to Paypal
    Goto Products & Services Tab
    Goto Website payment and standards link
    Find the donate button and click the create one now link
    Give it a Name such as Theme Development
    Then click create button
    You will have one in form code for your website
    But here you will want the email verion, click on the email tab
    copy the link
    You have what you need, open notepad and paste it and set up something you can copy and paste for other post.


    Here is mine https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc...ton_id=7104178

    Here is a graphic, but you can create your own and host it somewhere https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif

    Here is what will show up




    And here is the Code

    [url="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=7104178"][IMG]https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif[/IMG][/url]

    There finally I figured it out lol, post BBcode using noparse instead of code,

    So now you can copy the above and basically if you just get your ID number from your paypal link and put it where mine is, you should be good to go.

    It takes many professionals versed in many different area's to help the masses, I am just a single drop in that pool.

    Gimmie a couple minutes to fix the above lol Ok partially fixed... but the code tag isnt working correctly

    And just in case the above isnt working for you, you can start or reply to a thread and click the insert image icon and paste the url of your paypal icon



    Then with the picture selected and little white boxes around it, click on the insert link Icon, and paste the url of your email paypal link.

    Which I did while editing this, so if you can click on it, it worked

    Sweet begeebers, there finally got my reply how I wanted it lol, and Hayden I did pm him, but I figured incase anyone else was looking for help on this, they dont have to ask again or go around pm'ing people until they find an answer

    Raton, do you have a paypal account that you log in to ? or did you use their create a donation button, using your email address ?

    Do you have the long form code that has this line in it ? input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="#######"

    either way pm it to me and I can turn it into what you need

    if you have the input type thing, then that number is the same in either a webpage or email link and its specific to your paypal account...

    If you just used them by way of your email, then that is a whole seperate matter, which we wont go into on here, seeing as we dont want to paste your email
