Paypal Express Button Nothing Happens On Click

Hi guys,

The Paypal Express Button on the store checkout isn't working. You click it and nothing happens - a little loading circle plays beneath the button then disappears but that's it. I guess it's not connecting.

This is the page source

<div class="name">
<br /><br /><h2>Fast Secure Checkout With PayPal</h2><br />
<p>Save time &amp; checkout securely, without sharing your financial information.</p>
<p><em>(Please note, shipping will be added after you've logged in and been returned to the site!)</em></p>

<div class="contentBox contentBox2 ps_pod1 borderColor">

<form name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_form" action="/checkout.php" method="post">
<p><input type="image" alt="PayPal Express Checkout" name="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_button" id="PayPal_ExpressCheckout_button" src="WA_eCart/PP_ECO_Scripts/btn_xpressCheckoutsm.gif" />

Don't know where to go from here....

here is an updated cop[y of the webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/pp_expressform.php file that should correct the problem.

Ray fixed it. The button needed _x at the end for the server to recognize it apparently, he said this is only on some servers. This may help somebody else.

Appreciate your quick response.
