Gallery not working with paypal buttons

  • So I wanted to create a “store” and I did this by creating a gallery. The image caption contains the paypal buttons and it works great Except for one case. When I make a paypal button that has a text input and not a predetermined value for item number, amount, the paypal button doesn’t work.
    HOWEVER, in the attachment page, the paypal button works still.
    To see:
    Bottom right of gallery, “Donate other item”: http://williamsburgrowing.org/for-donors/wish-list
    and the attachment page: http://williamsburgrowing.org/for-donors/wish-list/donate-other

    Obviously since it works on the attachment page, I’m going to assume that there’s nothing wrong with my paypal code.

    Additionally, I tried adding the image itself, and not as a gallery and the same thing. Broken button.

    Any suggested solutions or way to fix this.
    Btw the paypal code is shown here.

    `Donate other item:
    <form action=”https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr” method=”post” target=”_parent”><input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_xclick” /> <input type=”hidden” name=”business” value=”treasurer@williamsburgrowing.org” /> <input type=”hidden” name=”item_name” value=”WMRC Wish List-Other” /><input type=”hidden” name=”lc” value=”US” />
    <input type=”text” name=”item_number” value=”Item Name” />
    <input type=”text” name=”amount” value=”$ 0.00″ />
    <input type=”hidden” name=”currency_code” value=”USD” /> <input type=”hidden” name=”no_note” value=”0″ /> <input type=”hidden” name=”cn” value=”Add special instructions to the seller” />
    <h5 style=”text-align: center;”><input type=”hidden” name=”no_shipping” value=”2″ /> <input type=”hidden” name=”currency_code” value=”USD” /> <input type=”hidden” name=”bn” value=”PP-DonationsBF:btn_donateCC_LG.gif:NonHosted” /> <input type=”image” alt=”PayPal – The safer, easier way to pay online!” name=”submit” src=”https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_SM.gif” /></h5>

  • I would first do a line by line comparison of the working PayPal JS code (from both pages). See what, if anything, is missing/different.

    Um, I guess I’m too knew, but I inspected elements and I didn’t see much of a difference. Can you give me a better idea?

    I tried taking the code out from the caption which works on the attachment page and pasting it directly into the webpage. Didn’t work.
