    I've been trying to put a paypal donate button in a post on my website. The code embeds the button fine (I'm using the ParseHTML addon).

    However when I click on it, it takes me to a message saying "Security error occurred. Please press back, refresh the page, and try again."

    I've looked around this website at various other posts that get the same error, but I don't really understand how anyone actually has fixed it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That is because the posts themselves are already within an HTML form (the inline moderation form). HTML forms cannot be nested. That's why your Paypal form is submitting the moderation action.

    You will need to use an alternate embed method, like a hyperlink or iframe.
    Mopquill and Darkimmortal like this.
