    Any resolution to this PayPal and WordPress glitch?

    I too am having the same problem. The dropdown does work when you use the Add drop-down menu.

    This problem is ONLY with the Add drop-down menu with price/option.

    Please update this thread if anyone has a solution.

    Just ran into the same problem. I contacted PP and they said it was a WP problem.

    I was given this link by the PP tech support. But I'm almost a total newbie so I can't make heads or tails out of it.
    If anyone comes up with a simple solution, please post it here.

    Hi esmi.

    Not sure why you don't want me posting in existing topics. Doesn't this forum work like others?

    I don't know what other forums you have used but here we actually do want people to start new topics.

    So even if I'm posting a comment or question on the same topic I should start a new one?

    Yes - unless your comment is intended to help the original poster beyond a "Yes - me too".

    So NealFox. Did you figure out the issue? If you have more than one item that has drop down menus on the same page, does that mean you will never be able to go back to view mode? (as opposed to html view?
    This is all very well for those of us who can get by in html, but what about when you have clients that want to add more items? There must be a workaround.

    [Personal comments about forum moderation removed] I think that NealFox thought that he was offering a solution but he just didn't understand what it meant.

    Are there any plugins that you can add to allow the html not to get wiped out if you go back to visual again?

    All <option> values must be grouped within a single <select> tag. for instance:

    <select name="os0"> <option value="a.Instant/Email">a.Instant/Email $160.99 </option> </select> <select name="os0"> <option value="b.2-Day Rush">b.2-Day Rush $161.00 </option> </select> <select name="os0"> <option value="c.3-Overnight/Next Day">c.3-Overnight/Next Day $175.00 </option> </select>

    should actually be just:

    <select name="os0"> <option value="a.Instant/Email">a.Instant/Email $160.99 </option> <option value="b.2-Day Rush">b.2-Day Rush $161.00 </option> <option value="c.3-Overnight/Next Day">c.3-Overnight/Next Day $175.00 </option> </select>

    find each extraneous </select> <select name="os0"> pair and delete them.

    This is a word press problem that manifests itself when you switch between VISUAL and HTML mode in the Edit Page EDITOR.

    Two suggestions:

    use the "BUY NOW" button, which will allow you to use a dropdown menu that works on WordPress. (I tried it and it worked).


    I found this code on a WordPress.com forum

    which creates a drop down menu but I have no idea how to customize the code for my purposes. I called Paypal and they suggested I call a Paypal Developer. (not that serious)


    The code is below this line: Good luck!!

    I meant to add that I found this site that makes paypal button for $15. Haven't checked it out but some might find this a workable solution

    I believe eyeglu's solution / code sample works. I edited the code on my WP page and it works great!

    esmi - Chill out, I am sure WP would love it if you could be a bit, uhm... nicer?
