Hi this is Karibwa from Australia.

 

Can someone please advise as to why my paypal module is missing from other More Gadgets modules?

 

Thanks

  • Hi Karl,

    As far as I know it is only shown if the Regional Settings for the site are set to English (US). I assume yours is set to English (Australia).

    To change it, go to yourdomain.com/_layouts/settings.aspx

    Click on Regional settings, and change the locale. Afterwards, when you go back and edit a page, the Paypal Gadget should show up.

    Once you're done, you could change the settings back to English (Australia) again if desired (not sure how important this is to you on the public website, think it doesn't make a lot of difference)

  • Karibwa,

    If you add a new page does it show up, or is it missing for any and all pages?

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Kaviu,

    This is Jonis from Microsoft SharePoint Online Support.

    At times the More Gadgets drop down box will not open.  If that is the case, hit F5 to refresh the screen and then try the More Gadgets ribbon button again.  Generally that will resolve the issue of the drop down not opening.

    In order to insert gadgets on a website page, you need to be the site collection administrator or have design permissions to edit the web page and add the gadget.  The following link details how-to Manage users in a public-facing website.

    If that does not answer your question please let me know as I will continue to monitor this thread for a few days and will reply to any additional posts or questions.

  • Karibwa,

    Is the problem that the "More Gadgets" will not drop down as Jonis mentioned or is it that, that one gadget is missing from the list of gadgets?

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Kaviu,

    This is Jonis from Microsoft SharePoint Online Support.

    This is starting to sound like a permissions issue.  Have you verified your permissions to the website?  Are you a Site Collection Administrator?  Do you have website design permissions?

    I will continue to monitor this thread for a few days and will reply to any additional posts or questions.

  • Jonis,

    Why in the first place I place a question in this community? Of course I am the full administrator and have the full right for it.

    Its just not make sense for the paypal to be missing from all gadgets.....if someone from microsoft can fix it.

    Regards

  • Really a good workaround, Thanks Rene

    But I wish they made the PayPal module available to all locales.

    Sorry, BuildItOn365 website has expired. Links to and instructions - no longer exist.

  • Hi Rene,

    I have tried what you suggested, which seems to be the key for Karibwa's site, but it does not work for me...

    Any alternative solutions?

    Sarah.

  • Solution found:

    What needs to be changed to "English US" is actually the USER SETTINGS, not the website settings...

    Hope this helps other non-US challenged Office 365 users!

  • Sarah W,

    There is a short wait period after you change the Website's  Regional settings, and change the locale.

    By you looking around for something else to set, the wait period passed and you were able to add a PayPal Module

  • Sarah,

    Thank you for this. I was struggling.

    This is not an acceptable state of affairs from Microsoft, especially not that it is a paid for service

  • Thanks to Rene Modery for providing the correct answer but can someone from MSFT explain the reason for disabling the PayPal gadget on a regional basis? Especially since you only have to change regions to activate it. If not, I hope the information in this thread has been submitted to the dept responsible for this daft arrangement so it can be changed.

  • No, I am still not coming right with any of the suggestions above.  Where do I change the User Settings - on the actual user accounts themself or somewhere else?  I am also not sure if this is a problem since I have been upgraded to the new Office 365 as I seem to recall seeing the PayPal gadget before the upgrade

  • All the old gadgets were removed from the new version ("upgraded"). Some code can be added using the "embed code" tool  - Paypal buttons appear to work but there's apparently no way now to add javascript now which is a major downgrade.
