Not the right solution for me

[Update #2: Upgraded my rating due to great tech support. Thank you.]

[Update: very prompt response from the plugin author — thank you! I did make a mistake in my review re: an ad tracker — my bad, and removed from the review below. I still maintain that this is not the plugin for you if you want a simple donation button.]

I took over a Web site with this installed. Fixed it once a few months ago by reinstalling, now it’s broken again. [Broken meaning the PayPal button does not display.] That’s two strikes. Strike three is the non-standard login authentication scheme for the plugin family — I prefer the standard, simpler way that most WordPress plugins use. Why isn’t authenticating as a WordPress admin sufficient? Why the additional step that makes it hard for multiple admins to work together on a site? KISS.

The tipsandtricks-hq PayPal donation plugin looks promising — I’m going to give that a try. [Update: entered my PayPal donation e-mail address, checked the optional box that opens the PayPal screen in a new tab, added a short shortcode, done.]

Very disgusting.

Once I tried to add this into the site and lastly save the button, then without sign in and subscription its not saved. then its take me error each time. Wasted 2 hours time.

POWr PayPal Button is a HIT

The POWr PayPal Button allowed me to create a “Donate Now” button that compliments my website. It was easy to set up and add to my page. We are happy with the results.
