    Hi there, I am trying to integrate a Paypal 'buy now' button on my website. The button is there and functions except that the picture of the button is getting scaled out of proportion/enlarged. If I load the same button just as a picture it loads fine. Have you had any eperience with those Paypal buttons, is there trick to it? Paypal wasn't able to help me out, on my other website not built in WordPress the buttons work fine. Here the site where it doesn't work: http://www.esoteric-healing.com many thanks for your help. Desiree

    Can you specify the exact dimensions of the image ? I know you shouldn't have to with a .gif but it looks like the <form> could be affecting it.

    the button is 80 wide and 25 high. And yes I believe the form is affecting it. If I just load it as a picture it's displaying correctly - see little button below it.

    In your CSS you have a form input defintion that's setting your width @200px. Delete it and your problems will go away too.

    ?One more question? After looking though the form CSS I couldn't find where to change the settings that create the huge gap between the button and the text above it? Any advise on that? (http://www.esoteric-healing.com/?page_id=5)

    Your paypal form has embedded line breaks. Removing them should fix your problem.

    Actually, I had the same problem with the gaps, and it was caused by hidden inputs (about 6-8 of them). I couldn't figure a way around it, so mine still has the gaps. I'd be interested in a solution to this problem as well...

    @incredipete,

    You need to remove the line breaks. Put all of your hidden form inputs on one line. That will get rid of the gaps. Less readable, but better than the big blanks spaces.

    its seems like the url to the button is remove when you put the paypal code into the article or a page. Any fix on this ?

    I am trying to add a 'buy now' button, to a page not a post, and my problem is that the forms aren't staying hidden and show up around the button. I have deleted the button for now, but would really like to have one on the page.

    I'm sure I am making this harder than it has to be, please, help.
