I made a short video to show what I am talking about. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Not seeing any errors in the console so not sure what is going on here.

In short, the issue is that we have hundreds of simple paypal purchase buttons on our site. The user clicks the button, it takes them to paypal to pay, and the order is fulfilled. Recently those buttons appear to have stopped working. If a user clicks the button it just sends them back to the same page, almost as if it was being returned there after the purchase was complete.

However, if I go into the back end to view the form and hit the preview button there it redirects me to paypal as normal. Any idea what is going on here?

You will see an error message flash about facileforms while looking at the back end preview. Not sure if that is related to it or not.

I discovered the cause of this but not really sure why it is happening... With Joomla's conservative caching turned ON clicking the links redirect back to the same page over and over again. If I clear the cache then click the button it takes me to paypal instead. If I turn off caching entirely then all of the buttons work just fine. Any idea what I need to do if I want to enable caching?

Hi,

This could be happening due to Cache on your site OR you have some kind of redirect in your .htaccess file, can you please check ??

Also if you need Cache on your site you can install CacheControl, free component from Crosstec which might do the job.
You can find more here : crosstec.org/en/forums/1-forums/72050-do...ol-plugin.html#72052

Mario
