I have a series of paypal buttons on a web page that I am trying to migrate from another site onto Wordpress.

When I copy the html and paste it into the (HTML TAB) of the wordpress editor, I can see the buttons. But when I press save the code disappears...


Elements like these (PayPal buttons), should not be inserted as page content in the editor, but in your WordPress template files.

I assume you are developing your own WordPress theme! If not, you can modify an existing shipped WordPress theme such as the Twenty Eleven WordPress theme.

Depending on the placement of the button, you should do it in header.php, sidebar.php or footer.php, all, of your selected WordPress theme.
