Secure connection (SSL) (3 posts)

    Will this plugin work with the 'WordPress HTTPS' plugin, to ensure all user-entered data is transmitted over a secure connection?

    Sorry if this question has been answered already, but this seems to be quite important!

    Hi Nick!

    Since no passwords or credit card numbers are accepted by the plugin, the most important thing is that the PayPal page to which the donor is sent to is HTTPS (including the form submittal), which I can assure you it is.

    Also, I can also assure you that internally, when verifying the IPN with PayPal, that is all done using a secure (SSL) chatback URL.

    That said, to ensure the remainder of the user-entered data is transmitted over a secure connection, you'll need to ensure the page the donation form is on is HTTPS as well as the ajax admin callback that occurs to save the donor data.

    From what I can tell the WordPress HTTPS plugin should do this, but I have not tried it myself. It is on my list to move my own sites to "all HTTPS" over the next few months, but if you get a chance to try it out before then, please let me know how it goes.

    Again, HTTPS or not - in any case no passwords or credit cards are EVER saved on your site, EVER.

    Hope this helps...

    My client is wondering about this also - having just the address form stuff protected with ssl. Nick, did you get it working well with the WordPress SSL plugin you mentioned? Any problems or issues?

    Thanks for your help!
