I've not been active for a while due to work load and computer Hard Drive failure. I'm back but when I went to log in I noted a security warning in the URL field. See attachment. ???

Browsers will now give you that warning if a site isn't https, which is Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This site is http://, I don't know if Devil Moon is planning to change that. All it means is that transmissions to and from the site are not encrypted. Since our store goes through Paypal which is, the whole thing is rather moot.

Chrome I know will squawk at you, it's scary but meaningless unless you enter sensitive data into a site.
