    Greetings Alan,

    I honestly want to help you get this going but I cannot understand anything you are trying to tell me, it is sort of cryptic.

    theme started playing acting strange then another install forum dissapeared and started showing in the blogsmu install

    Please clarify this entire sentence, I cannot figure it out.

    removed buddypress and theme from 2nd site and now trying to reinstall

    What second site? Where am I missing the boat on this?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Hi Ginab & Aecnu

    Had a rest was totally beat - now trying to resolve my issue's main site now working just need to fix the following either pro sites or membership and the relevant sign up pages - so far no luck !
    pro sites requires me to sign up for paypal pro costing £40 per month and membership requires advanced set up for paypal. Stripe is US based only !

    Am I going wrong somewhere ?

    Now desperate to get started but cant sign up new members and sort my payment gateways, can anyone please advise ?

    Greetings Al,

    Happy to hear that you got some well deserved rest.

    Why were you considering PayPal Pro?

    Go regular PayPal, no monthly recurring and works with both Pro Sites and Membership and almost everything else under the sun with 190 countries you can receive payments from.

    You want just a standard business account.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Hey there Alan.

    Paypal Pro is not a requirement. Note from the gateways:

    Express Checkout is PayPal's premier checkout solution, which streamlines the checkout process for buyers and keeps them on your site after making a purchase. Enabling the optional PayPal Pro allows you to seamlessly accept credit cards on your site, and gives you the most professional look with a widely accepted payment method.

    Paypal Pro is optional.

    This plugin suppose Paypal Express so you can process payments.

    Thanks.

    since i disabled the Paypal express and reverted to standard membership plugin doesn't work - tried reinstall upgrades and plugin conflicts nothing seems to work.

    Real confused by what you are doing here?

    So you used Pro Sites reverted to membership and then upgrades.

    You say something conflicts, what errors are produced. Perhaps you should start with one plugin at a time and work on that rather than many at once. Perhaps there is to much going on there and it is getting confusing.

    You said in another thread you sorted this or something else with Pro Sites.

    I think the other issue here is that a thread is opened on one thing and then it quickly moves to something totally not related thus also confusing matters. Perhaps keep threads direct and to the point working through one issue only and whilst working on only one plugin at a time.

    Hopefully simplifying things will help, I know it always works for me. :slight_smile:

    Thanks.
