WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
HTTPS + Contact Form 7 = Email Failure to Send. (5 posts)

    I am using WP 3.6.1, WordPress HTTPS 3.3.6, and CF7 3.5.3

    When I use Force SSL on just the page that uses my contact form I am able to get to the secure page and fill out the form. When I hit send I get the green box and it looks like everything worked. However, the email fails to show up.

    When I remove the page from being secured by SSL then it works fine. Is there anyway I can get these to all work such that the information being sent is secure?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi dailoto,

    I have a similar issue using gravity forms - it doesn't work when the email notification is set to email the email set in the form.

    Did you get this working?

    I have contact 7 form on my site + the HTTPS plug in. After much trial and error I was able to successfully send an attachment while the HTTPS plug in was activated. What finally worked for me was to uncheck "Force SSL Exclusively" under HTTPS>General Settings. I also have "Force SSL Administration" unchecked as it slowed everything down too much for me.

    At first, after buying a SSL Certificate, I could not get the domain to be "https" until I used this plug-in. In order to get it to work, I had to enter "/" for a URL Filter as suggested by this plug-in designer. This effectively makes all of my pages "https" which plays havoc when I try to embed simple (but unsecure) things like Ted Talk videos. I'm working on that now.

    Hope this helps.

    This is probably not the site you are looking for!
    You attempted to reach http://www.mandylaw.ca, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as incapsula.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of http://www.mandylaw.ca.
    You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.
    Proceed anyway Back to safety
