I'm using Low Search 2.1.2 on a Shop page. The search works fine, but the padlock for the SSL cert is coming up as broken. Inspecting it in Chrome gives the following error: The page at example.com was loaded over a secure connection, but contains a form which targets an insecure endpoint 'example.com'. This endpoint should be made available over a secure connection.

It seems to be Low Search form, which is creating the following HTML:

<form id="main_search" method="post" action="http://example.com/index.php">

I've used the following tag to generate the form:

{exp:low_search:form form_id="main_search" collection="products" search_mode="all" result_page="/shop/results" force_protocol="https"}

Is there a way to make Low Search generate a secure action URL?

The following is true for any form generated by EE, including the Low Search form:

If you want the action url to be https, make sure the URL to the root directory of your site setting under Admin > General Configuration (aka the site_url config item) also starts with https.
