Donation button to replace Portal??

Post by jennmm87 on August 17th 2010, 10:27 pm

How do I put a donation button the paypal donation button in place of the portal button. I deleted the portal and I don't want the icon there anymore on the Navigation/Header. How do you delete that and usergroups off of there?

Admin>>Display>>Pictures and Colors>>Pics Management >> Advanced>>Usergroups>>Erase the Pic URL out of there>> Save!

This will only work with certain forums. If you already have nothing in the code box you can erase it.

No, I tried this and it didn't work. I'm trying to put the paypal button on there so it redirects to my paypal account so they can put donations in there for the forum and I want the paypal button in the header and I tried and it's not working. And I can't remove some of the buttons for the header I don't want like usergroups, portal, and calendar

The donation link found at the bottom of your forum is a link to forumotion and i think you cannot redirect it to your paypal account. instead make your own link by going to

1. Admin Panel>Modules>Portal and Widgets>Forum Widgets Management. Create a widget name it paypal. Paste your paypal code in html (your paypal account code).

or

2. Admin Panel>Display>Templates>General>overall_footer. look for the donation link and replace with your paypal code or you can retain the donation link and put the code after. You have to put some other codes like centering of paypal button so that it will conform to the settings of your forum. Just search the net how to center in html...

The only way is if you create a personal PayPal account and create a button for it and place it on widget of the Portal.

I only said the link...

But anyways as Mario said you can paste the HTML CODE you wrote above in your widget

To add a widget

Please go to Admin Panel >> Modules >> Portal Management >> Structure >> Scroll down and click the link create a widget >> Then paste the code to the HTML page

Note that you must provide first a Widget Title or name before you save this...

okay...
