I am new here and have to say this is fabulous for info, I am having so much fun...
What I would like to ask is how can I change my donate button to the nice 'contribution' button you have here with the heart would be perfect indeed.
Hope it was ok to ask this and in the right place - Thanks
Welcome, and nice to hear you're enjoying the site!
Yes, perfect place to ask questions. =)
I think I may have created that button. If you can compare your paypal form code to mine, feel free to use the image. Be sure to not change your code except the input name="hosted_button_id" and the entire tag for input style. Don't forget to change the alt to your text.
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"><input name="cmd" value="_s-xclick" type="hidden" /> <input name="hosted_button_id" value="10769171" type="hidden" /> <input style="margin-left: 15px!important;" src="http://api.ning.com/files/G*cceR7y*B2q26FGkvF1WljEhnbDv7KSCEXQ*vikGOBxK2Dc-R7Rsvou095O4Khtu-HMxzHld6e1fkDy1-6j-F*ue7a1WBz8/contribute_heart_thanks.png" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" type="image" align="center" border="0" /> <img alt="Your donation allows me to continue offering Free Support, Social Networking Tips, News, and free Directory Listings for Social Networks, in the largest Social" src="http://api.ning.com/files/fHREbYH-0Hfar1tE0XerPztE4Q0hRYV7kSRseb4ksCFxqpxjzxneGi3m7lIPtp2zhkRgDeyD6PUoxDR4sWhxJtuYGS76jk-v/pixel.gif" width="1" border="0" height="1" /></form>
Wohoooo it worked - so far so good. Thank you so very much! What a difference it makes to the word 'donate' far lovelier. :) :) :)
If you're referring to the bar in upper right with the 4 buttons, that's available in the premium group. It's only $29.95 a year, with some great premium tips and special support when time allows.
That is great thank you - I am giving that some serious though for sure. Once I have learnt everything around here I will be wanting more I guess. If the others involved in our network agree it will be a must for us I feel.
I just had a look and love the way you have sectioned off a group for you premium group. Is that the system that ning were going to bring in or is that your creation again? Daft question I doubt it is nings but I could be wrong :)
As for the buttons no I was referring to the pretty circular ones near the 'contribution' button....I like big and bold but as I said could not find them on the net so assume they are more of your clever creations.
Anyway I will be quiet now have asked you way too many questions for one day. Thanks for everything :)
No problem, I had more time today than usual and happy to help. For buttons similar to those, follow this tip:
and you can also find those icons on iconfinder, which the link and mention is in the tip above.
Also, I find that the "Search Tips" icon I have (upper right next to Directory icon) is pretty good about finding tips. I searched on facebook.
Hope that helps,
Oh, and on the "I just had a look and love the way you have sectioned off a group for you premium group" - - it's just a private group. And once someone subscribes via PayPal, I invite them. It's pretty cumbersome, but it works. And hopefully Ning will enable "paid areas" of our sites in the next 6 months. What I dread is when it's time to renew. That's gonna be fun.
I do have special code on the private group page for non-members with a link to subscribe. That code is available in the group as well. ;-)
Fantastic! Thanks for the feedback. OMGosh, 4AM and still going strong. I'll regret it tomorrow for sure.
