Ok I was here a bit ago and thought I found my answer, but I didnt. Im truley new at this, PHP is so far away from anything Ive ever done before do please dont be upset by my stupid questions.

My 1st problem is my paypal donation link will not work in a block nor in a footer. It wont convert to the little picture link and stretches my page for miles. Is there some special coding for this ?

Secondly, I'm used to using something like
Code:
 [url=http://targeturl]MYTEXT[/url]
this seems to work just fine in my php forums, but will not work in a block ?

Could some kind person please help me out with these ?[/code]

Your problem is probably due to not commenting out the "". By this I mean there must NOT be any " after the initial one for the content.

For example:

$content .="SOME CODE OR WORDS HERE";

When you put that code in the block, it probably had some " in it.

Here is how to uncomment them:

$content .="<a href=\"http://www.paypay.com\">";

notice the back slashes....

[ ] is bbcode and is only used in forums.

LOL, Im not catching on, I just tried that and still the same outcome. Maybe we could try this ... If you have a minute.

Lets say I want a block, with a link to Ravens site, I want the word in the block to just be "Raven" but with theis mouse over code to link with
Code:
http://ravenphpscripts.com


Could you just show me the code for that and Ill try to work that out ?

Just extend a bit what spottedhog had to this:

$content .="<a href=\"http://www.ravenphpscripts.com\" title=\"Quality Web Hosting\">Raven</a>";

This assumes you already had $content valued with something and you were wanting to ADD more to the string. If $content has not been valued yet, either set it to $content = ""; up front or remove the "dot before the equal sign" in my example above.

you could always search around for the paypal block, I don't remember where I saw it but you could use it or look at the code to see what you need.

Just my 2 cents.

its look like your putting the code inside a block already, take the code I gave you save as block-Donations.php activate it through your admin panel, you will need to change the email to your paypal and put the right path in for image.
