Topic: How do I display a PayPal "Buy Now" button?

I want to use SimpleViewer to sell paintings, and I've managed to use the HINT on putting URLs in picture comments to display a link, but not to get a PayPal "Buy Now" button displayed. It requires a form, which I don't believe SimpleViewer supports.

Any ideas? This is a feature worth paying for! =]

Did you ever figure out how to do this?

Nope. I haven't had any replies privately and yours was the only post reply. I'm guessing there's no support for buttons, but then I haven't tried them w/o forms. Maybe you could try that? Put in an "img src=" tag with a button image as the URL, but don't use a form. When I have time, I'll check it out myself, but let me know if that works for you. This could then be embedded in a hyperlink to a webpage that redirects with a form? LOL. Never tried that either. I'm stabbing in the dark now!!! =]

Hi,

SimpleViewer does not support adding images in the caption text. To add a 'Buy Now' image button and link would need to purchase and modify the SimpleViewer Source Code. Modifying SimpleViewer Source Code requires Flash and Actionscripting Experience.
