I type the link text in and it does not show up on my sitebuilder plus or on the published page. I can't see this text on either of my computers. I have tried deleting my browsing history and still can't see the text using any of my browsers - IE 11, Microsoft Edge or on Chrome. I know the text is there, I just can't see it. This makes it nearly impossible to edit my "Buy This" buttons.

This was changed as most customers found text to be redundant. Currently, if you use a button style other than none, then the text you are looking for becomes alt text. It will display on the published site when you hover the mouse. If you use button style none, the your custom text will become the link. You can then use a standard button from Sitebuilder or any image button from the Internet to layer behind you Paypal text.

Do I need to switch back to Sitebuilder for the text and button to show? As it is, I can't see the text until I hover. We have been using this system for a long time and our customers kind of expect to see the "Buy This" with text below. We sometimes have 3 or 4 "Buy This" buttons next to each other for optional pricing plans. I am unable to see the info when I use Sitebuilder Plus but when my boss uses his Sitebuilder, the info shows on our website. Does the version of Windows matter? I use Win7 to do site updates. My other computers run Win10. My boss is running Win 8.1 (with Sitebuilder - not Plus)

You should both be using the same Sitebuilder, as depending on who publishes things will constantly change. You can get the same effect by using a text box under the PayPal button if you want to stick with Plus, or you can go back to desktop.
