Paypal Dotation Button Placement

Post by stewaia » Mon Mar 03, 2008 5:17 am

Hello,

I am trying to place a paypal donation button on my overall_header and am having trouble getting it to work. I also need it to let the printer friendly icon to go to its correct place when looking at individual topics..

I would like to place it here:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

Thank you in advance!

Just to follow up for anyone looking to do this for their site..

I added the button with a caption to my index and it looked like this:
Image

To do this I copied the html from paypal and created a new text file that I named paypal_button.html then went to the index_body.html and placed this code in there:

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE paypal_button.html -->
&nbsp;
so it looks like this:

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->

<p class="{S_CONTENT_FLOW_END}<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN --> rightside<!-- ENDIF -->"><!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN -->{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<!-- ENDIF --></p>
<p>{CURRENT_TIME}</p>

<!-- INCLUDE paypal_button.html -->
&nbsp;

<!-- INCLUDE forumlist_body.html -->
I hope this helps and if you have any suggestions let me know!

hi. i'm a phpbb noobie. i just started workin on some forums for my gameserver, but i'd love to add that paypal button like you did on the forums too instead of just the main website. i've tried to look through my phpbb files over ftp, but i couldnt find index_body.html to edit and put in the code like in your example. can you let me know specifically where to find the file so i can try this out? thanks for your help, and the post/idea!

Well, I would edit your files through the ACP by going to your act and clicking on styles --> prosilver (whatever style you use) --> templates --> edit on the style you use..then there is a drop down list of all your template files that you can edit on the forum.

If you want it on every page you will have to edit your index_body.html as well as your viewtopic_body.html and viewforum_body.html

I would imagine you would put it in the same place in all of them but I'm not completely sure so let me know if you have troubles!

How does one make a text file and where would one put it, directory-wise?
Thanks :)

Well I'm on a mac so I use TextEdit which comes on a mac..if you are on a pc just use notepad..when you save the file save it as an .html

As for where to put the file..Put it in your template folder for the style you are currently using..hope that helps!

Hello. My index_body.html code looks different from yours. Where would you place the

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE paypal_button.html -->
&nbsp;
to make it look like yours. I tried 2 logical places but I just wound up with a bunch of code there and no button. Thanks!

Code: Select all

<!-- INCLUDE overall_header.html -->

<p class="{S_CONTENT_FLOW_END}<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN --> rightside<!-- ENDIF -->"><!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN -->{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<!-- ELSE -->{CURRENT_TIME}<!-- ENDIF --></p>

If anyone's insterested I used the above clues to add the PayPal button to the navigation bar - after the "Change font size" icon.

Create PayPal html document, by pasting the code from PayPal service to notepad. Name it paypal_button.html Upload the document to styles/prosilver/template.

Open overall_header.html in styles/prosilver/template
Find:

Code: Select all

<li class="rightside"><a href="#" onclick="fontsizeup(); return false;" class="fontsize" 
title="{L_CHANGE_FONT_SIZE}">{L_CHANGE_FONT_SIZE}</a></li>
Add before:

Code: Select all

<li class="rightside"><!-- INCLUDE paypal_button.html --></li>
Upload the document back to styles/prosilver/template. Refresh template cache in ACP. Refresh the site in your browser.

Thanks to Stewaia for the heads up!

You can simply add the code within paypal_button.html to overall_header.html since it's not much. :)
