I actually have downloaded both the free paypal buttons and the latest version of eCart. I have configured the server and set up a PHP site and actually built a page which works on the server. However, when I got ready to upload to my hosting site and read through their doc on setting up for PHP I had some problems, no php ini to update. I called for support and was told that since I was hosted on Windows I couldn't update the ini. Not sure if tht meant I couldn't run PHP because that was kind of the last straw. I've taught myself CSS, Dreamweaver, and then PHP and the server and the learning curve was just getting too big. I don't need all the functionality of ecart and my database is Sage Peachtree and I'm not going to build a sql database so.. I backed off to the free PayPal buttons though I haven't tried to return ecart yet.
Sorry to give you such an earful I'm just really frustrated. I'm an old, I used punch cards, mainframer and there's a part of me that thinks I can do it all and I keep tripping over my lack of PC knowledge and the inability to find the right doc.
Ok, so I would like to find and use the recipes which I think downloaded with the Free PayPal extension. I have web assist snippits in my dreamweaver but they may be from ecart.
I would also like to know if I can update the paypal button from the properties screen. I read that I could but I don't get an edit field in properties when I click on the button.
