    1. This forum is not allowed to be used for the paid plugin. This is only for the free ZodiacPress plugin. (For the paid plugin, request support on the site which you bought it.) However, it looks like your issue is with the free ZodiacPress plugin, so this is okay.

    2. Have you done the pre-support self-check?

    3. Please post your System Info from the self-check or, if possible, a link to your site.

    4. It looks like you may be using the ZodiacPress Enhanced GeoNames plugin. If you are, please disable that plugin because it only works on HTTPS sites that are paying for a GeoNames premium account. Disabling the ZP Enhanced GeoNames plugin should fix your issues (if you are currently using it).

    This error ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID isn’t from the plugin. It’s an error given by the browser when it thinks there is a problem with your certificate.

    Possible solutions:

    1. I would disable the addon plugin “ZodiacPress Enhanced GeoNames” because that plugin expects a valid SSL certificate. (Since the browser itself is giving a certificate error, it’s likely that the Enhanced GeoNames plugin is running into the same error.) Disabling this plugin may resolve the problem. Although, I really do not think this will solve the issue because since your SSL certificate is appearing as “invalid” to the browser, this problem will persist until your SSL certificate issue is cleared up.

    2. Try the form in other browsers. If you’re using Chrome browser to test the ZodiacPress form, try it in other browsers such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge. If it works in other browsers, this would confirm that the problem is that Google Chrome thinks your SSL certificate has a problem.

    3. Contact your web host (or your SSL certificate provider) to see why the SSL certificate is appearing invalid.

    I hope this helps.

    I think the problem is with the address I have changed in the plugin code all occurrences of this address to, as indicated at
    I think it would be interesting to have this option in the plugin panel, if the person has a GeoNames premium account this change would be made. Now the cities are populating and I am not receiving the error messages anymore.
