Hi, I have been trying to add PayPal buttons to my site. I have copied and pasted it 4 or 5 times in the customizer advanced CSS. After I paste it I get a bunch of red x’s and saying I have errors that need fixed. So I have gone through and deleted where it is red underlined. Well, it’s about half of the code.
I have to delete the hyphens, equal signs, periods, the arrows. Pretty much all except the letters. It fixes all except when I get to the last one or two left and it won’t clear the error even though it is in green and doesn’t show me what is wrong. At the top, it just says you have 1 or it could be 2 errors. I can’t fix it so I end up deleting the whole code.
What am I doing wrong? The one I am trying to add now is the sandbox PayPal then I have to do the live one. MichelleNovember 22, 2019 at 5:15 am #1072258DavidStaffCustomer SupportNovember 22, 2019 at 9:15 am #1072856Michelle

should I connect it fo my cart page instead? I had issues before trying to add the payments so customers can stay on my site and not having to leave for another page to pay. I have not been able to set it up on my own site.November 22, 2019 at 9:30 am #1072881Michelle

your right I would like to have that plugin but I have 9 plugins and I’m afraid of having too many.
It gets really frustrating. thanks for your helpNovember 23, 2019 at 8:08 am #1073927TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I wouldn’t worry too much about having too many plugins. If those plugins are well-coded/reviewed, you’re completely safe to use them. For example, this site we’re on has almost 25 plugins 🙂November 23, 2019 at 8:35 am #1073966Michelle
oh ok! The host I have teaches that you shouldn’t have any more than eight and my site shows that my plugin is at 10% left. Some of the ones I have a extensions for woocommerce.November 23, 2019 at 4:55 pm #1074272TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
When it comes to plugins, it’s really not as simple as “you should only have x activated”. Some plugins might be one line of code, while some might have 5000 lines of code. In the end, it comes down to only having the plugins you 100% need, and make sure they come from good developers with good ratings 🙂November 23, 2019 at 8:22 pm #1074362Michelle
Thank you, I really appreciate you both for taking the time out to help me. I did install the Paypal plugin and i now have it setup.November 24, 2019 at 8:31 am #1074954
