can not add PayPal button to my project

Description

Please help me to add the donation button.

I'm the admin of crtdbg4wince. Tried to add a PayPal donation button to my project page, but it doesn't work. I tried the way your documentations <https://sourceforge.net/account/donations/manage> and <https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Donations> requiring. The Opt-In was successful.
But in my Project Admin page, there is no "Donations link" as required by "...click on the Project Admin > Project Settings menu and select the Donations link". There is even no "Project Settings" but a "Project Setup", so I tried it there. This directs me to "update Metadata" and some other screens, all of them without PayPal/Donation button.

Some years ago, the admin pages looked very different and PayPal was easy to add.

Please tell me, If I made a mistake and what you want me to do to get a donation button connected to my paypal ID on my projekt page.

Please take a look at the 2 screenshots. The older one, GoLD _has_ the Donations button (older project, different account) and the Admin Menu Entry is named "ProjectAdmin".
The problematic Project, crtdbg4wince _misses_ the Donations Button and the Admin Menu Entry is named just "Admin".

The older Project has slightly different layout, since it is from 2005 or so. I guess, the new Layout has Problems with the Donations button?

Please help!

Greetings,

We don't support donations with the new SourceForge platform yet, you can still accept donations, but we don't have this integrated into the system yet. We do have a ticket to have this added, but it is not available yet: https://sourceforge.net/p/allura/tickets/2540/

One workaround for the time being is to set-up your own donation link, install the "External Link" tool, and point that to your donation link.

Regards,
Chris Tsai, SourceForge.net Support
