Solved Paypal donation button

Post by Victimised on March 24th 2017, 10:47 pm

I am using the ModernBBBETA forumotion version
and for my forum I would like to add a paypal donation to a topic or or on my forum in general

I have the link which is:
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_donations">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="asgbforumdonation@outlook.com">
<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="BM">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="ASGB Forum">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PP-DonationsBF:btn_donateCC_LG.gif:NonHostedGuest">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>


I have already read through different post and they all say to go to
Panel>misc> Credits management> donation
but i don't have a donations section so what can I do ?

Thank you

Hi there, @Victimised.

As far as I know only older forums have the option to allow a donation button on their forums whereas newer ones don't since Forumotion scraped it a few years back. You can still add the button to your forum, of course, it just takes a little more effort.

Would you like an easier way? Like you can put the link to your PayPal Donation page in the footer of your site.

EDIT: @APE beat me to this thread. lol, Do as he said which is put it on a widget.
