How to setup QuickSSL Premium Smart or Trust Seal

Solution

To install the QuickSSL Premium Smart or Trust seal, simply add the following lines to each web page on which you want the QuickSSL Premium seal to appear:


Trust Seal

The GeoTrust Trust Seal is available from a self-service page that allows you to customize your new Trust Seal. To add the GeoTrust Trust Seal to your Web site:

  1. Go to the GeoTrust Trust Seal Installation page.
  2. Click I Accept to agree to the terms and conditions of the GeoTrust Trust Seal Services Agreement.
  3. Customize your seal by selecting the desired options for the Trust Seal size and format in the Choose Your Seal section.

    Note: The Web site name that you enter in step 5 of the Choose Your Seal section must match the domain name that you specified when you enrolled for the GeoTrust Trust Seal. For example, if your GeoTrust Trust Seal was purchased for "www.geotrust.com", then enter "www.geotrust.com".
  4. In the Create Your Seal Code section, click "I Accept. Create Script." to generate your Trust Seal code.
  5. Use your normal HTML or web development editor to add the Trust Seal code to any page of your Web site, provided it is located on the same domain as was used for your Trust Seal enrollment.
     

Copy and paste the seal code into your Web page code where you want the seal to display. If you email or paste the seal code into a word processor, the code may be altered by formatting, which can result in errors when pasting the code into your HTML editor. If you would like to save the code for later use on additional pages, save it as a text file in a plain text editor, such as Notepad.

Add the GeoTrust Trust Seal to any page within your domain where a visitor may have a concern about security: the login screen, home page, and security or privacy information pages. The Trust Seal should be placed where it will be clearly visible to your Web site's visitors.

 

Smart Seal

<!-- GeoTrust QuickSSL [tm] Smart Icon tag. Do not edit. -->

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js">

</SCRIPT>

<!-- end GeoTrust Smart Icon tag -->

 

These instructions will retrieve your QuickSSL Premium registration data from the QuickSSL Premium registry server and cause the QuickSSL Premium seal to be displayed on your web page. Remember, the web page on which you place this QuickSSL Premium seal must use exactly the same domain that is in your QuickSSL Premium enrollment application. For instance, if the enrollment is for www.geotrust.com, then the QuickSSL Premium registration is for that site, and does not include other fully qualified domains like www2.geotrust.com.


 

FrontPage installation:

In order to properly install your QuickSSL Premium seal on your website using FrontPage you will need to follow one of the two procedures below. Otherwise FrontPage will change the HTML code for the seal, causing the icon to function improperly.
 

Method 1

One way to add the Tag with Frontpage 2000 is as follows:

  1. Open the html page (*.htm, *.html, *.asp, or whatever) and put the cursor where you want the icon to appear.
  2. In the main menu, choose Insert -> Web Component -> Advanced Controls -> HTML to open up the HTML Markup dialog.
  3. Paste the second line (the non-comment line) of the Tag into the dialog as shown below in Figure 1 and click OK.
  4. Save the file (in the menu File->Save, or press CTRL-S).
     
<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js">

</SCRIPT>

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->

 

The opening and closing webbot comments seem to prevent "file:" from being added when the page is opened and then saved in Frontpage.

 

 

Method 2

The other way to essentially accomplish the same thing is to open the HTML source file in a text editor such as Notepad and add the webbot comment lines manually. Before the tag, add:
 

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->
 

And after the Tag, add:
 

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->
 

So that your HTML source looks like:
 

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->
 

<!-- GeoTrust QuickSSL [tm] Smart Icon tag. Do not edit. -->

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js"></SCRIPT>

<!-- end GeoTrust Smart Icon tag -->

 

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->
