Greetings to you.

I'm using SMF 2.0.17.
I've already got the html code of paypal donation button. But when I post it on a topic like this:

[html]
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_donations" />
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="myemailaddress@yahoo.com" />
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="EUR" />
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" title="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" alt="Donate with PayPal button" />
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_NZ/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1" />
</form>
[/html]


it shows the "donate" image, but when I click in it, it doesn't open the donate page, no redirection.

Can someone please help?

You can't post that inside an SMF post. SMF does not allow forms in posts.
You can use the payapl email link though.

Paypal should supply you a linking code for email.

Or you can do it like this -

I like it! :)

It would be nice if PayPal didn't show your email address to the whole world though huh? I switched from a personal to a business PayPal account for just that reason.

That's how PayPal identifies accounts to payers.  The email address on my personal account is a forward that's only used for that purpose.

You could also set up a PayPal.me link, that doesn't show your email address. It does show your name though.

Mine is: https://paypal.me/Gazmanafc for example.

After that, you can just have a static image that links to your PayPal.me page.
