    Hi there,

    I have a very strange issue that wan’t present in Dynamix 2.8.8. I’ve upgraded to Dynamix 3.0.5.

    We are operating in fully https environment for the site.

    In Dynamix 2.8.8 I added a form to collect sign-ups from customers and it is sent to our partner agency. It works perfectly.

    In Dynamix 3.0.5 I have to add the form as footer column 4 widget. The http://form-url… is being converted to https://form-url

    Now, if I add the form to a page, the http://form-url… is fully respected and it isn’t rewritten.

    For the life of me I cannot fathom why this is happening and it is definitely being affect by Dynamix 3.0.5.

    Can you suggest a fix please – even just a .htaccess fix would be fine. At present we cannot collect any sign-ups from customers. My client is insistent that the form remains in footer column 4.

    Many thanks,
    Rees.

    Hi Rees,

    Did you update WordPress at the same time as updating DynamiX? There is nothing in the themes code that would make this happen at all.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    No, WordPress was already updated to 3.5.2 before I installed Dynamix 3.0.5. I couldn’t auto update Dynamix 2.8.8 for some reason using the Envato plugin. I manually installed Dynamix 3.0.5 and use the Child Theme.

    Apart from that, there is nothing unusual. As I mentioned, the form works fine in a page but is converted to https in the footer – hence it won’t work because our partner does not have a https version of it.

    It’s really critical that it works and is not converted to https.

    Cheers,
    Rees.

    Hi Rees,

    I have had a search online and cannot find any reason why this would happen.

    One suggestion is to add the form code into a Raw HTML widget within Visual Composer, copy the code and paste it into a text widget in the footer.

    To do this, create a new page > Using Visual Composer, add in a Raw HTML widget > Paste in the form code > Switch to Classic Editor > Copy the code > Go to widgets > Paste the code into your text widget.

    Please let me know how you get on.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    I gave it a go with Raw HTML and the same problem > http is being converted to https.

    Not sure what to do now because I can’t tell my client it worked before and now it doesn’t.

    Would an iframe work?

    Cheers,
    Rees.

    Hi Rees,

    So just to confirm, you didn’t have the form in the footer before you upgraded, correct? Do you have any plugins installed that are changing URL from http to https? Or have you done them all manually.

    Iframe is worth a go, I cannot think of anything else at the minute.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Yes, the form was in Theme footer area – in v2 you had to enter the code in the theme footer settings rather than in widgets. I pasted it in HTML editing mode.

    You can see it working here in our v1 site using Dynamix v.2.8.8 and WP v3.4.2:
    https://www.kingofshavessub.com/site/

    No, I don’t have plugins that mess with http / https. As mentioned earlier, the site is running https with a SSL EV certificate.

    I’ll have to give an iframe a go but can you take another look please. An iframe is a nasty fudge and I know my client will not be very happy with it (he codes as well so he understands all this).

    Cheers,
    Rees.

    Hi Rees,

    I am pretty convinced it is WordPress that is doing it. To confirm this, you could switch to the standard theme and see if it it converts it still.

    If the standard theme does convert it to https, we would have to write a script to replace it within the customization forum

    If the standard theme doesn’t change it, we will write the script for you for free.

    Could you please provide us with your login details so we could take a look also? Please set your reply to private too.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Okay, so an iframe worked using a bit of js and extra css. The http call wasn’t rewritten.

    I’ve also googled this issue in relation to WP 3.5.2 and I can’t find anything that suggests an issue.

    To be honest, to change the theme to v2.8.8 and risk all the widgets being removed / disabled was something of a long route around.

    Many thanks for looking into this and it might be worth looking into further because it is an odd scenario.

    Cheers,
    Rees.

    Thats great, glad you sorted it. Sorry we could not have been of any more assistance, very strange situation you have come across. We will note it down for the future.
