Lisbeth,
How did you integrate google checkout into the main weblog and not as a typelist on the side? I need to get this up and running because checks and cash are driving me crazy. Thanks.

Get a merchant account with a virtual terminal so you can accept credit cards.

Ryan,

I made it a separate page. Once you're in your weblog page on Typepad, on the right below "create a new post" is "create a new page" -- create one and then add the code. You can create the page in rich text and save it but before you add the HTML code for the Google buttons, make sure to switch to plain text ("Change the display of this page" on lower right) or you will lose the values inputted on the Google page.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask again if it stymies you. Good luck!

(And Ryan, love the latest entry on your blog -- your words really capture the excitement of being a CrossFit affiliate.)

Lisbeth

Lisbeth,
Thanks I figured it out. How do you adjust it so It will do automatic billing every month or am I going to have to do it on my own?
Has anyone integrated Google Schedule into their typepad. I know Doug Chapman has.

Re: Official TypePad Users Thread

Dale,

We've integrated the recurring payment signup via PayPal. Works great! We created a new weblog, then linked to it via a typelist on the sidebar. Check it out on our site.

One thing we found is that if you use the PayPal encryption links, make sure you set them all up first and complete any editing before saving/publishing. If you save and then edit that blog, the links no longer function. I talked with PayPal about this and the encrypted links are set up that way so that if anyone ever hacks into your site, they can't change the links on you.

We've also integrated Google Schedule. If you click our class and event calendar, it takes you right to our google calendar. Pretty easy to set up as a typelist.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Steve

Dale (or should I call you Ryan again like I did this morning -- sorry! -- must learn to slow down sometimes) -- I have not yet tried the automatic billing but that's the next step. Did you figure a way to do it on Google? I didn't think that was an option but I could be wrong.

Re: Official TypePad Users Thread

Can anyone explain to me how to get the middle of my page wider? www.crossfitathens.com(wfs)
Doug's page for HyperFit USA is what I am looking for, but I haven't figured it out yet.
Thanks.

Re: Official TypePad Users Thread

I use typepad as well: www.crossfitrockwall.com (wfs)

So far, it's been easy (except a few frustrations). Everyone's sites look great! I'll definitely be exploring them when I get a chance...
