Great news! Thank you!
I tried putting ... around the code and still, it never showed up as a button. I also loaded the Raw HTML plugin but it did nothing either. The strrange thing (to me and my novice brain) is that the badges for cancellation and security both work, and the buttons used to work. It’s as if once they were generated, if I had to try to generate them a subsequent time for some reason, then the generator did not work.
The work-around I created was to use my MOP page with basic widget buttons directing users to PayPal Pro forms that I generated for each of the 3 levels of membership. In the end, that wasn’t a direction that worked for me because I do not accept the various credit cards it provides for. Plus, I like the streamlined approach of going from MOP to PayPal directly with a single button.
I won’t worry about whether or not the upgrade buttons work until I get members – and I’ll be happy to make this part work and call it a celebration as far as today goes.
I’ll let you know how it works later today/tonight.
Thank you so much for the kind wishes and the help. As always, you’re a rock star!
