How do I update the "QuoVadis Secured Site" seal on my website?


How do I replace my current "QuoVadis Secured Site" seal on my website with the new one?


QuoVadis has updated the "QuoVadis Secured Site" seal mechanism to improve usability and scalability.  With the new seal, you will not need to update the seal code on your website as your SSL certificates expire and are replaced.

This tutorial will guide you through the process of updating the seal code on your website.

First you will need to obtain the new "QuoVadis Secured Site" seal code which can be generated at

A tutorial on the generation process can be found at how-do-i-install-quovadis-secured-site-seal-on-my-website.

  1. Once you have obtained the new code, you will want to copy this into a simple text editor (such as Notepad).

  2. Start by opening the HTML document of the page where the site seal is installed in a program where it can be edited.  A simple text editor will work.

  3. Once the code is open, search for the following "old" seal code:

<script type="text/javascript">

function popUp()
{'','popUp','toolbar=no,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,location=yes,dependent=yes, status=0,alwaysRaised=yes,left=300,top=200,width=655,height=575')
return false;

var EVIMGHOST = "";
var IMGARRAY = new Array();

IMGARRAY[0] = 'blank.gif' //blank 1 x 1 transparent image
IMGARRAY[1] = 'quovadis_130x54.gif'
IMGARRAY[2] = 'quovadis_115x48.gif'
IMGARRAY[3] = 'quovadis_110x46.gif'

var ver=-1;
if (navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer')
var ua = navigator.userAgent;
var re = new RegExp("MSIE ([0-9]{1,}[\.0-9]{0,})");
if (re.exec(ua) != null)
ver = parseFloat( RegExp.$1 );

document.write('<a href=""><img src="'+((ver >= 7.0)?EVIMGHOST:NONEVIMGHOST)+'/'+IMGARRAY[1]+'" border="0" alt="QuoVadis Click to Verify Site Seal" onclick="return popUp();"></a>');
catch (e)


  1. When you have found the old seal code on your webpage, you are going to highlight the code from "<script type="text/javascript"> all the way to the </script> tag shown above.

  2. Next you will delete this seal code and replace it with the new code that is on the text editor, and then publish to your website.

The "QuoVadis Secured Site" seal is hosted by QuoVadis for display within your website.

Note: Please do not alter or change the code as this will be a violation of the Terms and Agreement that you have accepted when generating the code.

Note: QuoVadis recommends that you first install the new code on a test page on your production website to verify that it works as expected, before installing it in its final location.
