HTTPS Contact Form 7 = Email Failure to Send.

  • dalioto


    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?



    No, I did not get this working yet. I would love some support.

    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.

    I got an error message after the hosting install the SSL certificate and force wp https with the contact form 7 installed in the page.

    Can anyone please help?

    I cannot login to the wp-admin and has following error when viewing the webpage… PLEASE HELP.

    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
