Making A Website Store Custom


#1

So to begin, I’m REALLY new to programming, I have no idea whatsoever what I’m doing half the time, I just know basic PHP and HTML stuff.

So what I’m trying to do, is implement paypal’s IPN into my forums, and upon receiving a IPN notification from paypal, changing a person’s rank, and also sending us an email with their information we ask for (steam64 ID and other items)

I want to do this as a custom setup without using paypal’s button feature, as their button feature is really limited compared to how I want it setup.

We’re currently using a plugin, but the plugin is really limited, and doesn’t allow for us to ask for Steam64 IDs or other textboxes.

The current website is available at Vex Network Website if needed.

To be honest, messing with PayPal while being entirely new to programming is not a good idea.

Prefer first learn a bit of more complicated PHP (ex with databases, cookies, and things like that) !

Some little tips for your website :wink: :

  1. <center> tag is deprecated. Prefer using some CSS instead
.center {
text-align: center;
}
  1. You used an non-existant tag : <b1> ; Did you mean <h1> ? image
