Interesting for sure. I used to co-own and admin a rather large outdoors hunting & fishing website many moons ago and remember having to chase down a few more bugs than I cared to count when we changed servers a time or two. Of course we were silly enough back then to be running MicroSludge Server, so I guess we deserved to have issues. lol
The bug on yours, on the other hand, is a bit of a puzzle. The issue may be with the PayPal settings and/or maybe the page is linked to an old PayPal account with the john@ e/m address? Because that's what I'm remember seeing at the top of the PayPal screen.
If I remember correctly, the path started with this thread and the link posted here, which of course takes you to the Donations page (http://forum.beemaster.com/index.php?action=paypal
Then I clicked the PayPal button at the top, which took me to the PayPal log in screen with the form allowing me to fill in the amount, so I did and added my password and that was that. This is the page with "firstname.lastname@example.org
" at the top left. (see attached)
That's when I added the reply to your original message. (in case you need the date/time stamp for any reason)
Anyway, I hope that helps.
Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help and / or if you get it worked out.
Thanks again for all you guys do and provide. I know from personal experience how much time and effort (not to mention $) is involved in this type of system, which surely makes me appreciate things even more.
I'm learned a great deal from the kind folks that frequent this site and that alone is worth more than I can afford to donate! So I wanted to at least send a little more than a "Thank You" note.
Have a great day,
PS. I just sent a test $1 donation and it took me through the same basic series of screens / path as it did before.
