Same thing here, I tried it as well, on group forum and blogs. It doesn't work :/
Ugh! This is so not cool! =(
It works until it is published, and then vanishes. But yet when you go to edit the blog or forum, it is there. Completely confused.
Just a suggestion but have you tried publishing it and then forcing a full page reload (ctrl F5) to see if maybe it's a caching issue.
I use an image and the email link.
Crap! I've been so stressed out lately, I forgot that's what I used to do too at my old network!
Is this issue with the PayPal widgets being removed from blogs going to be resolved? I just tried doing this as well and the same thing happened to me. I ended up putting it on the main page in a text box.
I will try to help with this issue. And that's gonna be the next tip from me. Cheers
Thanks so much!!
Good news is that I wrote the code for you guys. Check it here
