All volunteer non profit organization- acepting PayPal
This is our non-profit all volunteer organization's site.
Once this issue occured and the user received the "Things don't appear to be working properly" message, it seems we might have a secondary issue with our Contact form 7. A lot of people seem to have thiese two issues.
The site is
The first form that worked perfectly and led to PayPal checkout is now having issues (it still sends email properly) and is no longer redirecting to PayPal checkout is here:
Another form (it sends email properly) no longer redirecting to PayPal checkout is here:
At first, the message “Things don’t seem to be working properly at the moment” appeared (from PayPal upon clicking submit on the form)
Then, the spinning arrows occurred when the user tried to start a transaction and check out.
I have upgraded wordpress and all plugins. Contact Form 7 worked great until recently when it stopped the redirect to PayPal checkout and we and the users experienced the spinning arrows each time the submit button is pressed.
wordpess version 4.8
contact form 7 version 4.8
PayPal acount has been tested , is in good standing and works well.
issue 1-no longer redirects to PayPal for checkout (this worked until PayPal made changes and warned that forms might have issues)
issue 2- spinning arrows when submit is pressed
Thank you very much.
removing dollar signs didn't seem to help in this case.
I will also paste the code from the form if you like and if the forum allows (I doubt it's allowed due to PayPal address".
My site has only recenlty become active again. The anonymised form data is as follows and would appreciate some suoport on the problem. Thanks
