Web Services has made a change to how secured Skins are set up. Skins that are used with secure content like forms and surveys must now be certified by Web Services. On the "applications" tab in the Skin Designer there is a link that will send a request to Web Services letting us know that you wish to have your skin certified for secured content. Until the skin is certified it will not be available for use in the Form or Survey tools.
What happends if I need to edit the skin? You can. But the skin will then be uncertified. Any form or survey that uses an uncertified skin will get their campus default. Once the skin is recertified then any form or survey that was using the skin will do so again.
Why did you add the certification process? We added the certification because skins were being set up without being tested in all browsers. Some skins were pulling in files that were not secure. This resulted in forms that were not being submitted. We feel that it is very important that people trust that the skins they are using will work.
What does it mean when a skin is certified? The skin does not use unsecured content. We do not evaluate skins based on their appearance, accessability or any other standard. We are only ensuring that the skin is not including unsecure content.
