WordPress HTTPS (SSL)
[resolved] Contact Form 7 not working with https (12 posts)

    WordPress-HTTPS works after setup and config, except for pages with included form.

    While it is possible to open the page ssl protected, there is no way to execute the send buttom, neither error messages from possible missing entries in fields show up.

    I tried with all possibilities with "Secure post" and/without "Secure child posts".

    Okay, another question here - as this was really not an issue with older versions of this plugin, is there any play to find them for download?

    I had the same issue with the early version 3 and went back to version 2. I keep version 2 handy as I've had to go back to it twice now.

    Thanks for the confirmation Tinshield, but do you also have a clue where to get the old version? Afaik I there is nothing in the plugin homepage, only the latest version.

    I could email it to you?

  6. Please don't post email addresses here, they get deleted when found.

    You can download older versions of a plugin at the developers tab of that plugin page.



    Scroll down, the links are in the middle of the page at the version numbers.

    Gentlemen, many thanks to both of you as you solved my issue.
    I went back to 2.0.4 now and it works like a charm.

    Before I did the step described before, I recognized that there is an update available for contact-form-7.3.3. Nevertheless, after the update both plugins are still not working togehther.

    Jan, as you seem to be deeply involved in this topic - who could "force" the two developers to work together and solve the issue? For my understanding, protecting form based submission of personal data is one of the most common reasons to use SSL. Therefore it might of help to get another way instead of the mentioned workaround.


  8. Jan, as you seem to be deeply involved in this topic

    Not at all! I don't use either plugin. I just happened to see this thread.

    Okay - understood.
    Well, let's wait what future versions will probably offer.

    I've been repeatedly frustrated with version 3.

    Another nice one:

    Since I'm using the old version of wp https and the latest version of contact form 7, everything worked wonderful - except in combination with Contact Form 7 - Dynamic Text Extension.

    In my case, dynamic content is being pasted and finally submitted by the user via the form. Using the page with https means, that the "@" is getting lost from a e-mail address.

    Going the same way without SSL secured website, it works like a charm.

    I know development takes a lot of time and people do it mostly for free here, but it's really a mess if you have to double check every little peace to make sure your website is not only working half way after running a update.

    Did anybody test CF 7 Version 3.3.2. combined with WordPress HTTPS Version 3.2.3. so far?
