The Details

This page lived inside an iframe, one of those things websites like to call “embeddable widget.”

It was hosted in an S3 bucket behind an Akamai cache, which initially posed a problem: the form returned SSL errors on submission if it wasn’t POSTing from barackobama.com. Our solution was to host on S3, use PHP to open the file, and cache that, too. It wasn’t perfect, but it was perfectly functional and worked within our limited timeframe.
