    Secure URLs in iFrame Facebook NOT WORKING properly

    Asked by democlouds on November 24, 2011 at 07:49 AM

    Dear JotForm team


    We are facing a very common issue on all our Facebook forms now:


    -When you are on a standard non-secure connexion on FB, IE shows a normal form as per first screenshot in attached.

    -When you are on a secure HTTPS connexion in FB, the iFrame tab shows an odd layout with no background picture as per lower screenshot.


    Please help as we now have many clients complaining about the issue..we have tried to substitute "secure.jotform.." by "www.jotform.." in our tab links but this has not given any results

    I have checked the code and it seems that you have embedded your form using regular http://.  Please try changing the embed code to https:// to fix it.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Make your app configuartion look a bit like this, all that needs to change is the 11 digit unique Form ID for each URL.


    There is a User Guide entry on this method here


    I have checked our tests forms, both SSL and non-SSL are working as expected.

    IF that still doesnt work, can you link me to your actual form? 

    are the images hosted on it on a secure website? It may be an idea to upload them to JotForm and use them from there.

    in your custom CSS change the background image to a secure location.

    .form-all {background-image: url('https://www.jotform.com/uploads/democlouds/form_files/plbrokContact.jpg');}


    Whats in your HTML fields? Make sure any images in there are also hosted on https:

    I've found the answer is to use http://form.jotform.com... as the unsecure version and then https://secure.jotform.com... as the secure url
