    I have WP auctions pro
    I am running for 1 month only an auction selling artwork (London based) to raise money for street children in Bolivia.

    Your plugin seems ideal.

    I have tried twice to register on your dedicated support forum but have not yet received the 2nd email approving/activating my account.

    Two current issues:
    I have loaded the plugin and now set up 29 auctions.
    I have asked to show only 3 on the side bar but in fact it is showing all of them! Please help.

    In addition I am not receiving notification on bids being made, even though I have requested this in the tick box in settings

    FYI:
    When testing your paypal message sent through was in $ as the GBP was mis-spelt in your code as GPB, we have amended this but thought to tell you.

    Thx

    Here's the £/$ issue in more detail (in fact I'll list separately too):

    At the bottom of the page are examples of before and after code changes:

    In wp_admin.php

    $currencies = array(
    1 => array('code' => 'GBP', 'symbol' => '£'),

    Made 2x changes 'GBP' was 'GPB' and '£' was '&pound' which did not work on UK machines

    Also in wp_auctions.php this code to create link to Paypal does not work
    case "paypal":
    $payment = "\n\nYou can pay for the auction by clicking on the link below:";
    $payment .= "\n\nhttps://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=".urlencode($paypal)."&item_name=".urlencode($rows->name)."&amount=".urlencode($rows->winning_price)."&shipping=".urlencode($rows->shipping_price)."&no_shipping=0&no_note=1&currency_code=".$currencycode."&lc=GB&bn=PP%2dBuyNowBF&charset=UTF%2d8";
    break;

    solution has been to include concatenation step - highlighted in red below. NOTE requires <space> + "."

    case "paypal":
    $payment = "\n\nYou can pay for the auction by clicking on the link below:";
    $payment .= "\n\nhttps://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=".urlencode($paypal)."&item_name=".urlencode($rows->name)."&amount=".urlencode($rows->winning_price)."&shipping=".urlencode($rows->shipping_price)."&no_shipping=0&no_note=1& "."currency_code=".$currencycode."&lc=GB&bn=PP%2dBuyNowBF&charset=UTF%2d8";

    Example of Paypal:
    Before:

    Please follow this link
    You can pay for the auction by clicking on the link below:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=benice_w%40yahoo.com&item_name=TEST+Abigail%3AIsaias&amount=70.00&shipping=0.00&no_shipping=0&no_note=1¤cy_code=GBP&lc=GB&bn=PP%2dBuyNowBF&charset=UTF%2d8 to pay for your pictures.

    After:

    Please follow this link
    You can pay for the auction by clicking on the link below:
    https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=benice_w%40yahoo.com&item_name=huw%27s+test+4&amount=75.00&shipping=0.00&no_shipping=0&no_note=1&amp; currency_code=GBP&lc=GB&bn=PP%2dBuyNowBF&charset=UTF%2d8 to pay for your pictures.
