    Security of a Lightbox SSL Form

    Asked by parummelhoff on April 27, 2011 at 02:23 PM


    When Checking security with a Lightbox I found that to have the light box show secure in the properties. not only does the first line have to have https: (this is done for you once you check secure form box) 

    but the base: should also have https:

    this I had to change myself

    once I did that then I was able to see the security ceritificate information 





    Let me know if I am wrong in my thinking

    Hello parummelhoff,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    I think you are right.  The base should be in https as well if you are going to use https for your lightbox form.  I will let our developers know about your concern and have this fixed.

    Thanks and warm regards.

    The lightbox cannot change the security level of the original pages that launches it. It is just a div created within the page.

    You should probably use the pop-up option.  That will open the form on a new window which can have an https URL and secure icon on the browser.

    Yes, as long as you use https as the page's protocol, it should be secure.
