          What exactly do you want? Do you have an example?

          You could start with a composition, you could also try the accordion (maybe the easiest way).

          It depends on, where on the page you want to have this PayPal button.

          To clear it up, like this the PayPal button is just a graphical button, with a drop down menu/list/paypal inside.

          In this dropdown you will have to place the "real" paypal.

           

          Does this help?

           

          Best Regards,

            I want to create a dropdown menu of different sized photo packages with a

            Add to Cart button. I don't see a paypal option in Muse is there one?

              In the widget panel – social (or social media) – …

              Try it with a composition or an accordion.

              This lets you have individual sizes for your button. With accordions the buttons and the dropdown are the same width.

                Also, do you know if there is a midget or way to hide a page so that a

                customer would use a unique code to view its content? An example would be

                to see there pictures from a photo shoot.

                 

                Thank you so much for your help.

                  Can you explain how I would integrate the accordion and paypal buttons to

                  work together?

                    No, this is not possible for Muse out of the box.

                    You need a stable CMS for that with shop system and so on. You may use some automatic generated code, this needs a proper shop system. Best to use a shop system which already has these features – code and so on.

                    I am not sure if the shop systems from musewidgets.com provide something like this.

                      Same as with the composition. Drag elements to the desired place in the accordion – one for the trigger and how much you like for the target. Show us an example of your picture what you want to sell and how this should look like.

                        When I try to paste it from paypal it pastes outside of the accordion, I

                        can't edit the spacing between each element, technically I wouldn't need

                        the accordion if I could edit spacing. If I try to use the paypal widget

                        there is no option to use a drop down for more than one price. I would need

                        to use a button for every price. If there is another way to use it please

                        explain how to me.

                         

                        Thank you for your help

                            This is a link to the folder in dropbox.

                            https://www.dropbox.com/s/nnxoqptna8e7wfp/Karen_Photography.muse?dl=0

                             

                            I put a couple notes on the page. The accordion is there because Adobe told

                            me I could use it to make the drop down work, but I haven't figured out how.

                              Master: Don`t use system fonts, it behaves like an image and not like text.

                               

                              Watch my suggestion: Dropbox - Karen_Photography_Accordion.muse

                               

                              I think, there´s a lot to think as the future customer to make this work altogehther.

                                No, it doesn't look professional at all. Maybe I need to use a different software.

                                 

                                Thank you for your help!

                                  It is not only a software task.

                                  It is more, what you, or even better, the user wants to achieve.

                                  Watching your site I as a user see at least two different people. I may see myself and somebody else?

                                  I can buy someone else images?

                                  Maybe you would need a code for each person to look at only the ones related to each person?

                                  On the other hand, if this page is meant to be only information about prices, then you wouldn´t need a PayPal, right?

                                   

                                  So yes, finally, maybe you better look for a stable shop system, where most features are already integrated.

                                   

                                  Best Regards,

                                    This is just an example page, so it's not set up correctly yet. One of my

                                    questions preciously was how to set it so that my customer would need a

                                    code to view their pictures. Can you tell me how I would do that or what

                                    widget I need for that?

                                      For this approach there´s no widget, I guess.

                                      The "Password" widgets I know, do not even claim for themselves to be save – code-experienced people (known as coders ) could easily detect the password from the source code.

                                      Depending on the amount of people Karen wants/needs to shoot throughout the years, I would recommend a valid shop system like for example in Germany there´s one called "www.fotograf.de".

                                      It provides generated codes for each person you photograph, and later you pass this code together with the pictures inside an album, so that only people, who know the code, can watch and purchase these images.

                                      For Karen the "workaround" could only be to create subpages like "karen-photography.com/clientwithsomeaddtionals1".

                                      These should be uploaded to subfolders, named: clientwithsomeaddtionals1 on her FTP. I don`t know how experienced Karen is, as I said, depends on the amount of people.

                                      I don`t recommend this really – the other solution comes around with some money to be paid . If she earns money, well then go for it.

                                       

                                      From this forum I know Günter Heißenbüttel who works with shop system(s). Maybe he has a different/additional opinion to this?

                                       

                                      Best Regards,

                                      Uwe
