Hi Anne,

I'm not sure why it is saying it isn't secure. Where did you get that message? Just when you went to the homepage?

Regarding not having http in the url, try this: http://permaculturemag.org/



Hi Cassie,
For a website to be secure according to my (very limited!) knowledge it has to say https:// note the "s" which is missing from your link that you gave me there. So it is possible for any web-savvy person to get the info that anyone enters on that page. I went ahead and took my chances anyway as paypal is secure and I just hope that my name and address and email, phone etc don't get picked up by anyone from the sign up page and sold or misused. You might want to ask your web expert about this.



Thanks for that. I will keep looking into this. But as it turns out, I am my web expert. LOL I built my entire website by myself, but I am definitely NO expert, so I am just trying to figure everything out myself, so it might take some time. Thanks for trusting it.



To add to the HTTPS comments, it is a best practice to use httpS whenever personal information is entered (name, address, email, etc), and absolutely critical when entering things like passwords or credit card numbers. The check out page is not using the secure protocol but once you jump into PayPal it switches to httpS. It would be better if the check out page (http://permaculturemag.org/checkout/) was changed to use httpS so the session is encrypted when users enter their billing/shipping info. For this to happen you will need to purchase/setup a SSL certificate that basically ties an encryption key to the permacultremag.org site to secure it. Too much to discuss in this thread but there are lots of good resources out on the web. I suspect you could also have PayPal collect the billing/shipping address and not have to worry about securing it yourself.

Is the email with instructions for accessing back issues of Permaculture UK and confirmation of whether I was one of the first 50 subscribers sent out automatically, or is that an offline process that takes more time?

Thanks,

Cory



It should have been sent out automatically. Sometimes it takes a bit. Have you still not received it? I see your order.



Hi Cassie,

No, I still have not received the order confirmation email from PMNA. I will email you at permaculturemag.org so we can troubleshoot outside of this thread.

Thanks,

Cory

How is the micro documentary coming along? I'm almost done listening to all of the podcasts from the PODS reward and need more content, ha! Thanks again Paul & Team for all the hard work on these projects.
