In progress Help with html code

Post by Smoption on March 9th 2013, 9:51 pm

This doesnt work on html pages? I took out the links to paypal there because it doesnt allow me to post external links.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<body> The current Prize Pot stands at 60 pounds.
<p> How the Prize Pot works: To win the prize pot you buy a raffle ticket. Each raffle ticket gets put in to a hat and at the end of each month a name will be picked out of the hat. That person will get all the money in the Prize Pot by Paypal. Easy!
<p> Buy a Raffle Ticket here.
<form action="paypal/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="E42JUX9VKXURU">
<input type="image" src=".paypalobjects/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">

Should work, how does it really have to show? Where did you get this code from? Or what exactly do you want to create?

It probably is not working because of some of the words used like buy.

Forumotion's HTML management does not allow certain words, like "buy" as SLGray mentioned. Replacing it with "purchase" should do the trick. I'm not sure if there are other words that aren't allowed or not. I'm assuming it's a security related thing from forumotion to keep ill-intentioned people from misusing their services, but either way, removing those words should solve the problem.
