Contact Form 7
[resolved] Using CF7 with SSL (7 posts)

    I was wondering if there was anything special needed to make Contact Form 7 work on a domain with SSL.

    Every page of this website needs to be SSL'd, so I can't use a plugin to remove SSL on the contact form, which is a solution I have seen others suggest.

    The contact form had been working fine, up until when we applied the SSL certificate. Now we receive the following error upon trying to submit the form:

    "Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method."

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin from within WordPress. I have tried deleting the files via FTP and re-installing. I have even tried a few the last 2-3 older versions.

    I appear to have hit a wall. Most Google searches either suggest making the page non-SSLed, which is not an option in this case.

    Check your PHP error logs.

    My log file doesn't seem to have anything in it relating to the contact form, just a few theme errors from mid/late April.

    Any other suggestions on things to test? Are there any manual file hacks I can do to make it work again under SSL?

    FAQ > After submitting the form, I get an error message stating “Failed to send your message”. What is wrong?

    Which border do you see? Red or orange?

    Red. Before applying the SSL certificate to the site, everything was working as expected.

    The red border means mail sending function failed. It is unlikely that it relates to SSL.

    I get an error message with a red border. So, how can I solve this?

    Looks like it's working now. Thanks for the recommendation.

    The reason I didn't think that would work, was due to the fact that everything was fine up until the SSL was applied. After talking to their web host, it turns out they moved the entire site to a new IP address, and altered mail settings.

    Thanks for the help. I think this case is closed :)
