    I am able to add my form as a regular gadget to my Google site, no big deal.  However, some sensitive data will be transferred, so I would like to use the secure version of the form on there.  When I use "https" instead of "http" when adding my gadget to my site, it gives the following error:

    "The gadget you added is not valid

    Unsupported feature: org.apache.shindig.common.xml.XmlException: The markup in the document preceding the root element must be well-formed. At: (1,3)"

    Is it not possible to add a secure form as a Google Gadget?

    Do you have a secure google site? An https URL for your site?

    Yes, I made it a public site and I can still access it via https while not logged into my Google account.

    When I try to access the link that Jotform gives me for the gadget by just pasting it into a browser, it works fine - gives me the code behind it.  When I put https in that link and paste it in, it gives me a "security exception" page.  I confirmed the exception and now it just takes me straight back to Google's main page.

    I added this to our todo list. We will look into and get back to you. It may take a while though we have many things in the queue.

    Ok thanks!

    In the meantime, is that the only way to add a JotForm to a Google site?  Can I use any of the other methods to get a secure connection?

    You can just link to the secure form from your google sites pages. Then the form will be secure.
