PayPal button going awry. Unhelpful for all concerned.
I investigated …
It wasn’t just the button for the new kit. It was almost all Add to Cart buttons!
PayPal seem to have changed the way scripts are processed, so that some coding practices which before conveniently delivered an aesthetically pleasing layout – and was apparently acceptable to PayPal (after all, they worked!), are now not.
Not acceptable. And not working. Dysfunctional.
A whole load of time lost today: identifying the causes, exploring solutions, implementing, testing. A lovely sunny day outside – warming sun, scarce any breeze, the promise of spring – sometime. And I’m sat at my desk with curtains drawn to keep the light of the screen, furrowed brow, an intensifying headache …
Heaven only knows when the buttons started dysfunctioning. We don’t have the time to visit our own online shop under disguise and see if it does what it should. I do wonder sometimes whether we actually earn enough to justify the time on all this kind of thing. Well, we don’t earn enough anyway, so I guess that answers that question!
No, we don’t do what we do just to earn money. We do it because it has purpose and pleasure.
