[resolved] [Plugin: WordPress HTTPS] encryption error when trying to submit a form (3 posts)

    For some reason, I am getting an encryption error when trying to submit a form on our one webpage that is secure. I've removed the https option from one site: http://pursuitofresearch.com order page and kept it on the other http://wholefoodtherapy.com order page so you can see the difference. There is no need to fill out the form to check if it's working, when you hit submit it will either take you to the aweber required field, if it does not work you will see the encryption warning:

    Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.

    Are you sure you want to continue sending this information?

    I'm not sure if this happened when I updated to the latest WP, or when we switched our SSL cert from a Standard SSL to a Standard UCC SSL.

    I don't see that error on either, but I'm sure that error is from your browser, so we're probably not using the same one. The form works on both links, although both forms submit to an unencrypted page - http://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl, so I can see why you would get a message like that.

    My plugin will not modify this form, so it should work exactly the same with or without the plugin on.

    If you attempt to submit the form to https://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl, it redirects back to HTTP anyways, so your form will never really be secure. However, if you change the form to post to https://www.aweber.com/scripts/addlead.pl, it should make the message go away.
