    I've checked and all the settings seem to indicate that my forms are not SSL, but every time someone completes one of my forms that is embedded on a google site, it uses up an SSL quota.  Why is that and how can I change it??

    Google sites uses the httpS protocol. This would mean that the form embedded will use the secure layer SSL when submitted. Thus, it will always take up your SSL quota. Your Entry page where the form was embedded uses the https protocol (please see image below)

    Can you try change the URL link to non-https like this... http://sites.google.com/site/sinefmsimplyfredbizjuiceaward/entry-form

    see if it will make the difference.

    As far as I know, our widget use SSL connection.

    Alternatively, you can put your non-SSL form to the Google Sites using 3rd party Embed Gadget.

    1. Go to your site.

    2. Switch to Edit mode.

    3. Open "Insert Menu" Select "More gadgets" at the bottom.

    4. Select "Embed Gadget".

    5. Put your form iFrame embedding code, adjust gadget width and height, then press OK.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
