Hello,
You can add a button to a widget ... Do you want a button for when members click to donate money? Have a link to donations?

Yes I want a button that links to paying for no ads for the members. It’s called credits right?
I see their are buttons in the admin panel can I use the PayPal button and the link?

Let me get this straight, you want a button for your members to donate, right? Type:
(CSS code)
Code:
.button {
  background-color: #4CAF50; /* Green */
  border: none;
  color: white;
  padding: 15px 32px;
  text-align: center;
  text-decoration: none;
  display: inline-block;
  font-size: 16px;
}
HTML code:
Code:
<a href="link"><button class="button">Click to donate</button></a>

That button won't do anything. It will be just for decoration. Forumotion used to allow members to donate to the forum, but I'm pretty sure that feature was disabled a long time ago. You can have a paypal button that lets member donate money directly to you, then use that money to buy packages or anything else for your forum. I can help with that if you want.

Occultist is correct, the 'contribution' feature was removed from all new forums around 2013 or 2014, so if your forum was made after that time, it wont have the contribution system available, however, older forums that were around before the feature was removed will still be able to use it by activating it in the admin panel.

If your forum does not have access to the contribution system, the only thing you could do is set up a paypal donation button, where members can donate money, which can then be used to but credits or a package.

Go to https://www.paypal.com/donate/buttons to get a code for a button. Roger's css code won't have any effect on the paypal button, but it can be easily modified if you want that.

You can use the same style, but the button will allow users to send money to you. You can then use the money to buy credits yourself.
