I do not see the under the Miscellaneous tab/submenu.

2: Is there a way I could use my paypal id and not my e-mail address? I want my members to be able to donate even if they don't have a Paypal account.

A donation request went through, however after checking email and paypal logs there is no sign of a donation to be found.

UPDATE: I've found that if I visit the donate link and then click some other link or just press the back button that my name will be on the PayPal Donation listing page when it shouldn't be. After checking emails and paypal logs there are other members that this is happening to as well... Please fix!!

I'm having the same problem now
