I'm currently running CIVICRM 4.7.4 with the most current version 7 release of Drupal and am running into an issue with event names when transmitted to Paypal. For example, the event name in CIVICRM is "3V2016 - Module 3 - Instructional Design" but it displays in PayPal as "1679-2049-3V2016 - Modul..." I tried this out by registering myself, and the same thing happened. I can't see any setting in CIVICRM to handle this and it worked fine before upgrading to 4.7.4 (from 4.6.x) so I'm not sure what's happening here.
In addition, for the particular registration in question (the real one) the payment processed through Paypal OK and we received the notification email from Paypal, but nothing from the site, and the registration shows as "Pending, incomplete transaction" Again, this worked fine before the upgrade. I saw somewhere that someone resolved this in a Wordpress installation by making the CIVICRM module's extern folder writable so I've done this (777) rather than (755) so I guess we'll see what happens with that. This is what I found in the log file in the Config and Log directory: Mar 22 11:44:44 [info] Could not find payment processor for contribution record: 2049
Mar 22 13:45:33 [info] Deprecated: Group='Contribute Preferences'. Name='cvv_backoffice_required'. Defaults should come from metadata
Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Chris
