After editing one of my PayPal pro (level 1) pages I get an error: TCPDF ERROR: Could not include font definition file: zapfdingbats.
When removing all names of credit cards except paypal the page seem to work OK with the exception that Billing address data is asked, which is of no use when people pay with paypal. Also the paypal button doesn’t show.

S2member Pro version is 121204

Boudewijn, could you please test if there’s a theme/plugin conflict causing this? Knowledge Base » Common Troubleshooting Tips

Sure I could, but it worked before the upgrade and I did not change anything else.

Yeah, I know what you mean, but that can happen sometimes. I know that error doesn’t happen in a clean installation of WordPress with s2Member, so something else is adding it. Could you test for a theme/plugin conflict and let me know how it goes? Thanks. :)

Well well, with the last update the weird error is gone…
HOWEVER… (always an however)
I now had paypal and visa as possibilities
Selecting PayPal still brought up the billing address options…
I will check against other plug-ins, “I’ll be back”

Here’s what I did to check for the aforementioned erronious behavior.
I deactivted ALL plugins except for the s2pro plugin.
I then generated a new pro form shortcode. Accept set to paypal,visa,mastercard
Saved the page and took a look at it.
Fillied in some bogus info and select Paypal as payment method.
Still the billing address data appears…
Something is not OK…

I then removed the CC’s in the accept completely so only PayPal was accepted as way to pay. Saved the page and looked at it. Then also the billing address data appears.

What struck me also is that in a past version of the pro form when selecting PayPal the button at the end changed into the well-known PayPal alike button. That is not happening now.
Not really a problem, just noticed that one.

Could you please show me screenshots of your pro-form tests, together with the shortcode for each?

In one of the latest releases, there was a change so that the payment method didn’t have to be selected if PayPal was the only option. Maybe that’s what you’re seeing different?

(s2Member Pro) Feature Enhancement. s2Member Pro Forms integrated ONLY with PayPal Express Checkout (accept=”paypal” accept_via_paypal=”paypal”), will no longer display a Billing Method section on the Pro Form, as it’s not necessary (there’s only one possible option in this case, and it’s already depicted by the PayPal button at the bottom of the Pro Form). Many site owners had implemented CSS hacks to hide this section of a Pro Form configured this way, based on this FAQ article. This hack is no longer necessary – starting with this release.

Will do my best. I just updated to wp 3.5 and now I cannot get in the wp-admin. Contacted the hosting company already so maybe later today…
