PayPal buttons for iWEB 1.1.2

I am new to iWEB, and I made this really cute website with some of my art, but I have run into a problem with getting it to show PayPal buttons. I have read posts for other versions, and I cannot find any kind of HTML editor, or HTML Widget to use in this version I have. I have tried just pasting in the code right into the page, but when I publish the site, I see the code, not the PayPal button.
HELP!!!!! I need to get this finished up and please do not tell me that I need to buy another version! This is Apple software we are talking about! Where's the HTML editor??????!!!
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am DESPERATE!!!!! What to do?!
thanks in advance

  • Paypal button in iWeb site

    any idea how to introduce a PayPal payment button into an iWeb site. Paypal give a section of HTML but i don't know how to apply it to the site i am creating for commercial use.

    Here's how I got a paypal button on my site at:
    Go to Paypal and create your button. You'll get to a page with all the HTML needed. Copy this HTML.
    Open a text box on your page the size of the button eg, 62 px by 31 px.
    Type in the box some recognisable, unique text, eg, PaypalHTML, and change the font size of it so that's it fits in the tiny text box. You can horizontally centre the text or position it left or right, but don't vertically align it otherwise the text box changes into a png. You want it to remain a text box.
    Open the page in your text/HTML editor.
    Find and replace the text 'PaypalHTML' with the actual Paypal HTML.
    That's it. That way there's no alignment problems and it goes where you want it to.
    You use the same principle with banners served by other parties, scripts etc. See my links page for more examples:
    I hope that helps.

    How do I get someone to respond to my question here?
    Let me try again.
    With DW CS5.5 when I try to insert a PayPal button into a table (which I always did with DW8) the table in Design View gets scrambled, making it unusable.  Please would one of you out there who is much more knowledgeable about DW than me try it and see if there is a solution?  If you create a new HTML page in Design view, create a table in it, place the insertion point inside one of the table cells, go to the code view and locate the insertion point there, then paste the PayPal button code at that point. Here's the code:
    <form target="paypal" action="" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
    <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="XSXQ9CUMUVLQC">
    <input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
    <img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1">
    Now go back to Design view and see how it looks.  If it acts the way it does for me, the table is no longer visible, but if you go to Live View everything looks fine with the table and the button inside it.  Of course, I can't design in Live View.
    PLEASE can someone out there help me.
    Many thanks.

  • Creating paypal buttons in iWeb

    i have copy and pasted the html code onto my web page in iWeb but when i publish the page the button is not generated...why? what am i doing wrong? It's the same procedure that I used to create a "visa buy now button" before. Also having the same problem using html from another site that want to generate a cartoon on my site. Wassup!?

    If that's the case, then create a simple HTML page with the Paypal code.
    Then paste this line in the HTML snippet:
    +<object width="75" height="50" data="/dotMacID/paypal.html" type="text/html" standby="Paypal" title="Paypal"></object>+
    Instead of object you can also use iframe.
    [Here's my PayPal button|]. Look at the source to see how it's done.
    Save the source and put your own code into it. Otherwise I receive your donations.

  • Dynamic Paypal button for PDF fill-in form

    Hi there,
    I need help with adding a Paypal button to a PDF fill-in form. The Paypal button should feed through the Invoice Number field (a text field) and the invoice total amount (also a text field) to Paypal and add this to the Paypal cart (not ‘buy now’, but ‘add to cart’ so that more transactions can be added after that)
    I found this thread in the Adobe LiveCycle forum that does the same thing:;jsessionid=54D973B79E04C5B30F8B4BA56D95CE39.node0?ts tart=0
    I’ve tried to add this Javascript action to the button in Acrobat but it doesn’t work.
    Does anyone know what the correct Javascript should be to make this work in a PDF form?
    Help is very much appreciated

    Since nobody else has answered, I will say that you might try the Acrobat Scripting Forum

  • Setting up paypal buttons in iweb?

    This is probably a relatively easy thing to do, but I know very little about this "Internet" thing.
    All I'm trying to do is set PayPal up on my little iweb website (
    How do I "paste code into my website's HTML code?"
    If it helps, here's the url to the part of PayPal's demo that I'm stuck on:

    Here are some basic instructions for making html changes after publishing in iWeb:
    1. Type a placeholder in place of where you want the item to go. i.e. PAYPALGOESHERE or something like that. Publish your site via iWeb
    2. Find your html files.
    Go to iDisk/Web/Sites/iWeb/Sitename/Pagename.html
    (If you publish to a folder, look in the folder you selected or try looking in your Sites folder of your home folder. )
    There are two ways to handle accessing your iDisk.
    Method 1:
    Turn on local copy of your iDisk in System Prefs, with or without automatic syncing.
    If you publish your site via iWeb, now the updated pages exist online but the old pages are on your local iDisk. You need to sync (automatically or manually) to get the new pages on your local iDisk (on your computer).
    Then you can open the updated files, make your html changes in Text Edit or whatever program, and SYNC AGAIN (automatically or manually) to update the online version of the site to match what you have just changed on your local iDisk
    Method 2:
    Mount the iDisk when needed via the "Go" menu in Finder. This is the ONLINE VERSION of your iDisk, not a local copy. When you publish your site via iWeb, the changes INSTANTLY appear on the iDisk on your desktop. If you make html edits or other changes, they appear INSTANTLY online.
    I recommend Method 2 - much easier!!!
    3. Make the html changes.
    You can open the html files generated by iWeb in any text or html editor. In TextEdit, to view the code in an HTML file, choose File > Open and select "Ignore rich text commands." Then locate the .html file (as described in step 2) and click Open.
    Make your changes and don't forget to save your changes (not Save As, just Save)!!!
    4. Remember, if you make a change to a page like this post-publishing, and later re-publish, you have to make the html changes again! Set up a Find/Replace command in MassReplaceIt and you can do this very quickly. You can save your queries so you can make all of your changes with one click the next time you save.

  • Buy Now paypal buttons for flash 8 basic

    I just bought these buttons off the web and I am trying to use them. Flash says it cannot open the fla files because they contain screens. What does this mean?

    Are you using CS5?

    refer to  Miscellaneous section, which says--
    "Screens functionality is removed. Screens FLA cannot be opened or saved. A new Screens document cannot be created."

  • CS4 Mac: Inserting PayPal buttons?

    Hello.  I have a Mac user who needs to be able to create specific PayPal buttons for new events and update a web page with the new button as the event draws near.  Can this be done in Mac Contribute CS4?  Does the user create the button in PayPal and cut-and-paste the code, or do it in CS4?  I've seen references to a toolkit, but it seems like the toolkit requires Dreamweaver, which the user does not have.
    The user currently has Contribute 3 running on Snow Leopard and it keeps crashing, so I need to upgrade him soon.

    In Contribute CS4, one can insert these Paypal buttons - Buy Now, Add To Cart, View Cart, Subscription and Donation buttons. In the Insert Menu, there is PayPal sub-menu, and select any of them. For any other custom PayPal buttons, you can copy the code, and in Contribute insert it as a HTML snippet. (That is, copy the code associated with PayPal button, in Contribute select Insert menu, and select HTML snippet sub-menu. In the HTML Snippet dialog box, paste the PayPal code.)
    Hope this helps. Cheers!!!

  • IWeb not publishing PayPal button widget

    As per Burns Media (see below). I have taken the proper steps to insert a PayPal button. However the button does not show up on the published site. I've done this in the past and it did work but not now. I have the latest update to iWeb and running OSX 6.4.2 Is there a problem with these updates or am I just missing something?
    Thanks for your help!
    Burns Media Posted this: You can certainly use PayPal on your iWeb site, and it's fairly easy. You would indeed use the HTML Widget - first, log in to your PayPal account (or create one if you don't have one) and follow the steps to create a new button (Buy Now, Pay Now, Gift Certificate, etc.) When you've finished making the button, the last step gives you some HTML code to copy and paste into the HTML Widget. Copy the code from the PayPal site, in iWeb drag the HTML Snippet to your page and in the box that pops up paste the code. Hit Apply and you're done! When you publish the site, visitors can click your "Buy Now" box and be taken to PayPal to buy.

    I think this is very similar to the instructions you posted, but here is a visual demonstration showing how to add PayPal to an iWeb site

  • PayPal Button missing after upload on iWeb 8

    I've created a page on iWeb with a PayPal button.  I created the button on PayPal and added it to my page using the HTML widget and it shows up fine in iWeb.  When I upload it to my server the button and look at the page on the web it shows this message:
    When I spoke with my server provider they said they could not see the HTML code.  I'm not sure why it's not uploading. 
    A publishing error message also appears after I upload the page:
    Although I got this message all my pages were uploaded on my site and they looked fine except for the area where I placed the PayPal button.
    Any ideas how I can get my PayPal button to upload and work?
    Thank you

    I'm hosting my site through goDaddy.  This is the page in question:
    I uploaded the entire site again and now the PayPal button is showing fine and working but a few of the other jpgs that I use for links are missing.  This is how it looks in iWeb:
    But this is what is posting now:
    At least I know the PayPal button works now.  Just need to figure out why the other files aren't loading properly.  They were prior when the PayPal button wasn't uploading correctly.
    Thanks for you time,

  • More than one editor (computer) for iWeb and using paypal

    I am not a full-time Mac user, but have been asked to complete a website for a client who has started one in iWeb. She wishes to continue her site in iWeb so that she can make future changes to it. Currently, we have different versions of iWeb on our computers (hers is 2.0.4, mine is 1.0.2). It is my understanding so far that we would need the same version to be able to edit the site on both computers.
    Before I can agree to finish the site for her, I would like to confirm that if I upgrade my computer to iLife 08, and she publishes the website to MobileMe, I would be able to retrieve the site and work on it from my computer and vice versa.
    Also, she wishes to incorporate paypal in her site. Would this be an issue?
    Thank you.

    Yes, that's right. For transferring iWeb's Domain file you could use iDisk's Public folder. The general address is:
    And here's an example:
    But before transferring the Domain file, read "NOTE 1" here:

    I had not heard of the PayPal rule for MobileMe - I will look into this. If you have a link to the documentation for it, please let me know.
    +"The Service is designed for personal use and not intended to be used for commercial business purposes, including, but not limited to, *transacting online sales* or software distribution via an e-commerce site."+ ...Quoted from the _MobileMe Terms of Service_.
    So yes, you could upgrade to iWeb '08 in order to be able to open the Domain file transferred via iDisk. But if the site is using PayPal, you are not supposed to publish it to MobileMe — instead, publish it to a folder and then FTP to another host.
