    Having trouble with a from on https

    Asked by ctbta on February 10, 2013 at 12:08 PM

    My form is not displaying in IE and I believe it has something to do with my page being https. Some of the errors include:

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    Stack Overflow at line 225.


    I have this code on the page:

    $baseURL = "www.ctbta.org";

    if ($_SERVER['HTTPS'] != "") {
        $httpProtocol = "https";
    } else {
        $httpProtocol = "http";

    if (strtoupper($_SERVER['HTTPS']) != "ON") {
        <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=https://<?= $baseURL ?>/wines-of-march.php">

    If I turn the above code off the form displays but I lose the styling on my page. Is there a trick to get the form to display if the page is https?

    Since your website is using https, your form should also be embedded using its secure URL.

    Please use this guide -How-can-I-receive-SSL-Submissions to be able to get the https version of the embedded form.

    The complete code should be like this:

    <iframe id="JotFormIFrame" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="https://secure.jotform.us/form/30247185086152" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:953px; border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    <script type="text/javascript">window.handleIFrameMessage = function(e) {var args = e.data.split(":");var iframe = document.getElementById("JotFormIFrame");if (!iframe)return;switch (args[0]) {case "scrollIntoView":iframe.scrollIntoView();break;case "setHeight":iframe.style.height = args[1] + "px";break;}};if (window.addEventListener) {window.addEventListener("message", handleIFrameMessage, false);} else if (window.attachEvent) {window.attachEvent("onmessage", handleIFrameMessage);}</script>


    Please try this and inform us if further issue occur.
