    How to embed an SSL form with a WordPress plugin

    Asked by MC_USA on July 18, 2014 at 03:34 PM
    That's helpful, but is there a way to do this using the WordPress plugin?

    Hi,

    It is not currently possible to embed a secure form to wordpress using the plugin at this time.  I have submitted a feature request to see if this is something we may be able to add in the future.  For now I would recommend using this method:

    We will update this thread when we have an update.

    Thank you for using Jotform!

    Thanks. But this still wouldn't be secure unless the WordPress page I embed it on is secure, right?

    Hello MC_USA,

    No it is not necessary to have your WordPress page / website secured and you can use your form's secure embed code to transfer the data securely.

    Once our WordPress plugin is configured to be able to embed secure form in your WordPress page, the data transmission from the embedded form to our server will still be encrypted even if your WordPress site does not have any SSL.

    Thank you!

    Rather than using the plugin to embed your form, you can use your forms iFrame code:

    This will use SSL by default.

    Thank you for the reply, Jotform's been a lifesaver for me. I don't mean to look a gift horse in the mouth, though I've read that it's not a good idea to mix HTTP and HTTPS (#2 in this short article):

    http://www.tinywebgallery.com/blog/iframe-do-not-mix-http-and-https

    Essentially saying an attacker could replace the sites content with other content in a way that's difficult for the user to see. I'm curious what Jotform's take is on that?

    Thank you for nice words.

    All our forms are secured by default, meaning all embedded forms are secured as well, so all submission will be submitted as secured submissions. 

    If you want to be extra safe you can always Encrypt your forms and therefore make your submissions secured as much as it is possible.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
