Royal Bank & Post online store tweaked (coins&stamps)
« on: July 19, 2020, 07:52:13 PM »
The Royal Bank and Post pages for stamps and coins have been amalgamated to create one single webpage to function as an 'online store'.  Previously, these items were on seperate solo pages of their own. 

However, that particular tweak is secondary to the removal of the solo pages from the top down menu on Talossa.com in favour of a much more prominent web banner on the sidebar as shown below:





(In doing this I found a little bit of an issue that may require some tweaking by @Istefan Perþonest - The PayPal link for stamps leads to a lovely little order form, while the link for coins does not.  If the Burgermeister could take a look at this and let me know if a snazzy form for coins could be created like the one for stamps?)

Okay, there are at least two serious problems here:

1) The coin link isn't using the correct HTML button code.  The critical bits that make it actually work have gone missing.  The code between the <center> tags should read:

<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="M92FV56Z58VA2">
<input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynowCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">
</form>

2) We do not have free shipping on stamps anymore no matter how many you buy, and haven't at any point where we were selling coins, because the PayPal back end wasn't happy with that.  The last version of the stamps page I edited did not offer free shipping.  (That was back on the kingdomoftalossa.net domain, back when we had two separate websites running in parallel, so apparently this is a survival from a pre-coins copy-over that I wasn't involved in.)

1) PayPal code fixed, with thanks.

2) Changed to read "+ shipping"

Oh, and apologies, you'll need to amend your forum signature now as the links to the 2 solo pages won't work.  The link for the new single page is
