Hi I have a pay pal button that I want to change to a text link if this is ok?
This is part of the button link below It would be nice to have Add to Basket as the text link & if possible a choice of size & colour of text. Itís the highlighted part I am trying to change below. (I think)
I always get lost with this.


<form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
<input type="image" src="http://www.collectors-info.com/paypal1.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypal.com/en_GB/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
<input type="hidden" name="add" value="1">

make a transparent gif 1 pixel x 1 pixel and put it in front and behind the text you want to link. Link both gifs and the text where you want. Your paypal script requires a graphic. Hope this helps. 3's

Chris, your code is correct. Please send me a link to a page with this button.

Hi Naval, what I was trying to do is put a pay pal button under each image in the photo album. http://www.collectors-info.com/testing/photo/Album1.htm The problem is that the top left image on the index has now got a scroll bar since I added a PP Button & the button & the text has dropped out of sight. If you click on other images the scroll bar disappears & the text shows at the bottom of the image. Now if I could make the PP Button a text link & not a form style of button I may have a mini shopping cart.
It turns out the company that makes this software is bring one out with PP buttons but not for quite a wile.

Hi chris,

open the .html pages that contain the pics, and add the ADD to cart button ON the picture (maybe lower right corner)

And, yes, you can make your own button (s) to better suit your pictures.
The above technique (code) is correct.

Thanks Naval, Adding to the image side solved it.
