Adding a PayPal button after posting
« on: June 01, 2021, 12:00:48 AM »
Is it possible to turn the forum into a sales site by having the admin person adding a PayPal button after receipt and before posting in each post.
I am working on a site to sell art works and do not want to collect the payments.
This means I would be adding a button to the posts and including the sellers email In the button setup.

Not the same but I have a Classifieds system a paid addon for SMF found at https://www.smfhacks.com/smf-classifieds.php that has some of those options.

If you really want to, you could do that manually for each post.

- You would need to disallow editing of posts from other users to make sure the button won't break
- You would need to modify the posts for the users, individually, and include the Paypal button in html inside the post text, using [html] [/html]

To do this all before the post comes "public" would mean the post would have to be written in a limited board, and moved later.

This appears to do what I want.
Just need the cost and link to a site with items for sale. There is a link below but there are no items for sale on it.
I will reply on from your web site with my details.

Sounds good. A cool hidden feature of the mod is you can actually turn a board into a classifieds board
