Protection Error when clicking on a Paypal button?!

#1
Dear all

sorry, maybe this is not really a bug but I don't know where else to post it.
In fact, I've implemented a DONATE payPal button in my xenForo instance, using this code:

Code:
<!-- MF ad_message_body -->
<xen:hook name="ad_message_body" />
<!-- MF Se è il secondo post, visualizzo Donazione -->
<xen:if is="!{$message.conversation_id} AND !{$ajaxInsert}">
<xen:if is="{$post.position} % {$xenOptions.messagesPerPage} == 1 AND !{$message.conversation_id}">
<div style="display: block !important; float: right !important; vertical-align: middle; width: 100px; padding-left:10px;">
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">

</div>
</xen:if>
</xen:if>
The point is that, if I click on the button, I get redirected to
http://timelapseitalia.com/forum/inline-mod/post/switch
and get a generic Protection Error.

Can anyone please tell me what this is?

Thanks a lot
Marco

You've put the form inside another form (one that XF makes/uses).

You'll need to move it or do it differently. If you need any further help, I'd recommend posting in the customization forums.

hey Mike

changing it to:

Code:
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=marcofamaonline%40gmail%2ecom&lc=IT&item_name=Time%20Lapse%20Italia&currency_code=EUR&bn=PP%2dDonationsBF%3abtn_donateCC_LG%2egif%3aNonHosted">

</a>

doesn't help anyway, and still the redirect to
http://timelapseitalia.com/forum/inline-mod/post/switch
appears :(

Can you guess now what it is?

Thanks

PS: I'm not able to migrate this thread into Customizations...

You didn't need to change the code, you needed to move it out of the <form> element.

Okay, I see that the point is that I still don't understand why I get that error, although this is just a normal link associated with an image!

Can you guess a possible solution to my problem?
