1+ When things like this occur, it's usually far more effective to communicate directly with the party involved. Hank's always been very fair and straightforward to deal with, and he has always answered his email in the past. If there's trouble with the site, I'm sure he'd appreciate the heads up.
I'd already emailed him when I posted here.
I don't actually think it's a glitch. The sure way to know if you're on a secure server is to look for the https:// in the address bar.....but the reason I mentioned the text fields is because -- if the site had been secure in the past and had become UNsecure as part of a glitch -- those fields would still be designed to take information in a specific format.
In other words, it's unlikely that this particular checkout page has ever been on a secure server. No idea why. Maybe I'll hear back from them.
