Subscription Form on a Secure site

Question

When I place a Subscription form on an HTTPS site, it generates a security error on submit.  Is there any way to make that work without the error?

Answer

As long as you are on the SaaS or a Broadcaster that uses an SSL certificate, you can create a Subscription Form that will work on an HTTPS page without generating a security error.

Here are the changes that need to be made:

  1. In the generated Subscription Form code, change the form "action" to the Secure URL for the SaaS (or Broadcaster):

    For the SaaS, change:
    <form action="http://whatcounts.com/bin/listctrl" method="POST">

    To:
    <form action="https://secure.whatcounts.com/bin/listctrl" method="POST">

  2. You must also make sure the landing page is an https page. For example:

    <input type="hidden" name="goto" value="https://www.mysecuresite.com" />

If the form action is not changed to a valid secure site or the "goto" value is left as the default (value=""), a Security error will appear.
