    If you are board and want to stop someone from being able to use their form, simply do the following.

    Go to their form and change the http to https, submit the form 10 times like this and walla, their account will be blocked for going over the quota.

    Just another jotForm blunder!

    If the wrong people find this is possible they could cause a lot of problems to peoples forms.

    Cant there be an option on the form to say if that form is allowed for ssl.  if this is not selected and someone goes to a form with https they would then get an error message directing them to the standard version of the form.

    This could help losing access due to account being block for going over quota of ssl forms

    This is my point, exactly!


    JotForm doesn't look like it has much attention paid to it. I think they put all their efforts into MemberKit, which I think is pointless as it doesn't stand a chance against the likes of WordPress and Joomla etc etc which are free!


    I think they should concentrate on JotForm and make it something that is bug free, more functional and something that more people would want to use.


    Currently I use the form for a client to make Airport Taxi bookings, but the stupid calendar doesn't even have a way of preventing dates that aren't after a 24 hours time period. So I am having to look for other solutions.


    On the old (BETTER) JotForm, you could use jQuery, but now you can't because of the useless Prototype JavaScript Libary they use.

    You are probably right, but we have never seen it happen before.

    If something like that happens, let us know and we will reset your submission count. We do not downgrade an accounts instantly when you go over limit. You have about 1 business day to upgrade or inform us about the problem.

    You are way off with your comment about not prioritizing JotForm. We are not a big company but we are all working on JotForm. See our blog about recent announcements.
