    Can we somehow set to redirect HTTP to HTTPS address somehow?

    Asked by laoscgroup on June 03, 2011 at 10:08 AM

    I am about to upgrade to premium user but wonder what to do with the current link that we already sent out.

    Can we somehow set to redirect HTTP to HTTPS address somehow?

     

    thank you,

    Hi laoscgroup,

    Thank you for your message and for planning on upgrading to our Premium account. Yes, you can change the forms to http secure (or https) by simply modifying the form URL's prefix to https:// instead of the regular http://. You can either do this manually in your existing website coding, or checking the "secure form" box in the Embed Form Wizard

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you once again for using JotForm!

    Thank you for your response. I know there is such option. But, how can i redirect any HTTP link to HTTPS directly.

    I already sent out HTTP link to people so when i upgrade the account i want to provide them with HTTPS link. So, any previous HTTP request, i want to redirect it to HTTPS.

     

    thank you,

    Hi,

    I am afraid that is not possible. The only way to change protocols, from http to https, in the midst of a browsing session, is to use redirect scripts. The problem is that scripts cannot be inserted in forms created by the Form Builder. The codes will only get stripped, rendering the whole process useless.

    I apologize but the only workaround to this is to redistribute your form links.

    I already upgraded my account and now redistributed the link for HTTPS but i got an email asking why the {edit_link} is still under HTTP in the email response. Is there a solution to this? Checking for the email response option there is only one {edit_link}.

     

    thank you.

    Hi,

    Thank you for asking this question. Currently, all edit links sent through email alerts are in regular http. I am not sure if that is made that way or our developers have just left out that one single aspect, that is, to send secure edit links for secure submissions.

    Please note that an edit made through the edit link counts as another submission, so if you want edit links to be in https it will surely deplete your secure submissions allocation faster.

    Anyway, I have already sent a ticket for this issue. We'll see what our developers can do about this. We'll notify you of any progress made regarding this matter.

    Thank you for your patience.

    @paul7200

    This feature has been added to our developers' todo list. We can't guarantee a specific time for completion though, as our developers are extremely busy with a ton of tasks lined up.

    There is a workaround to generate secure edit links, and that is by following the steps in this user guide - How to Make a Clickable Edit Link.

    Make sure that you replace http with https in every URL used on that guide.
