PayPal eCommerce Toolkit - Not Generating Form Tags

PayPal eCommerce Toolkit - Not Generating Form Tags

Hello Everyone.

I hope you can help...

I have purchased several suites from WebAssist as well as downloading the free the PayPal eCommerce Toolkit.

I'm having a problem with it at the moment.

I add a "Buy Now" button and it takes me through the process and every thing seems fine, but when you click on the button on the actual website, nothing happens.

On further examination I can see that you are using a form submit statement but your DW Extension didn't create the Form Tag... so nothing happens.

What to do to fix this?


Here is the generated code with the private stuff xxxxxx out:

<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick" />
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="webassist.dreamweaver.4_5_0" />
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="VetAphex box of 6 at $14.95 each" />
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="89.70" />
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD" />
<input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="7.95" />
<input type="hidden" name="shipping2" value="7.95" />
<input type="hidden" name="handling" value="0.0" />
<input type="hidden" name="undefined_quantity" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="receiver_email" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="mrb" value="R-3WH47588B4505740X" />
<input type="hidden" name="pal" value="ANNSXSLJLYR2A" />
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="0" />
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="0" />
<input type="image" name="submit" src="" border="0" alt="Make payments with PayPal, it's fast, free, and secure!" />

As you can see, this code is not surrounded by Form Tags.
