Support » Plugins » [Plugin: cForms II] Secure Forms

  • I’m trying to figure out if there’s a way to make a cForm secure or if there’s another plugin out there to allow for a full customizable form that’s secure. My clients wants to do a https secure form for his site and I prefer doing it within the WP environment instead of creating one in Dreamweaver.

    Sure, CFormsII lets you change the form action to whatever you want. So just change the form action to https://… I’m assuming you already have SSL set up for whatever domain it will be submitted to.

    Honestly, I don’t know. Client is responsible for that but I can find out. He’s hosted on Powweb.

    OK, there is. It would be where ‘username’ would represent the username of the owner of the site. Not the domain name but the username. So how would I properly change the form action in cForms?

    Take a look at the documentation/forums for the plugin on delicious days. There are threads discussing CForms’ support for https.

    I did but quite frankly, their forums really suck. I can’t find anything there.

    I figured it out.

    First, I went into wordpress general settings and changed the wordpress and blog address to https://(site). Then I went to cforms and went to the exact form and updated it (update button on top right side). Then I went back to general settings and rechanged it back to http://.

    Then I changed the cforms_root line as referenced here in entry 4:

    Then the captcha and submit button wouldn’t work, so I went into plugin editor -> cforms -> js/cforms.js and changed the sajax_uri variable to either ‘https://(fullpath)’ or ‘/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/cforms/lib_ajax.php’;

    The path may or may not include /wordpress for you depending on your path.

    My website is at

    Good luck all!
