Hello, I have six paypal add to cart buttons on my aspx page that is displayed in a master page. All of the buttons work correctly except for the first button. If I copy and paste the exact button above the button that is not working the button then works as expected yet the pasted button does not. It just renders a postback.


I stripped out the aspx stuff and the content control going with pure html and the button rendars correctly.



Any help would be great!
 
 here is the page:

Difficult to see what you are describing.  Where is the button HTML?

Thanks for responding Bob. I've found that the issues is in having multiple forms on a page. When I strip out the masterpage code and go with straight html it works fine. I added an extra <form></form> in the table where the button reside and they now work. probably not best practice. But, I seached for quite awhile without a solid asp.net 2.0 solution.

One way would be to have multiple forms in the MasterPage with difference ContentPlaceHolders within the forms.
Like

<form id="form1">
  <asp:contentplaceholder id="placeholder1" runat="server"></asp:contentplaceholder>
</form>
<form id="form2">
  <asp:contentplaceholder id="placeholder2" runat="server"></asp:contentplaceholder>
</form>

Then, within your pages, you can place the different contents withing the different forms.  
Not sure if this is what you're looking for or not, but I hope it helps.
