    I agree with nepeansynchro.

    Using the way described in this article doesn't work because the call to submit is done via http and not httpS (thanks Fiddler) :-)


    I inserted the httpS URL into an iFrame (using Google Sites)

    Hi enricovermaak,

    Google sites uses https protocol. This would mean that the form embedded will use the secure layer SSL when submitted. However, there's an alternative solution to put your non-SSL form to the google sites using 3rd party embed gadget.

    1. Go to your Google 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 code, then adjust gadget width and height, then press OK.

    Hope you find this helpful and informative.

    Thank you!
