Still a work-in-progress, but got my website published and working. Let me know if you experience any glitches and how you're accessing the site (e.g., PC, Mac, mobile, browser, etc).

Thanks,

I thought about dropping "Tom Cruise" in the driver's seat. :)

I clicked on it from my IPhone. I received this notice advising me not to go there.

Thanks for your feedback. Please be certain that "https" is in the url address when you're trying to access the site. If only "http" is in the url, it will give you that warning. The "s" is important.

I think I'm going to check more into this with my hosting company, to see if there is a work-around that will still be secure in those cases where the user doesn't enter "https."

Also, do you know what browser you're using? Below is the security overview that Google's "Chrome" reports for the website.

Thanks. I think my images are slowing the loading time. I might need to do some tweaking to speed up loading.

Nice work! It loaded perfectly using the Chrome browser.

But if you want to have a site that will attract all GXPers, then avoid the three pedal moniker. The majority, as we all know, were automatics. Then have all the available statistics on the site and a forum to address specific GXP issues.

I am using safari from my iPhone. I just clicked on the link in post 1, so I didn鈥檛 do anything with typing an s. I tried it again today by clicking the link and it took me to the site. Nice wheels on the GXP!

Glad to hear it's working for you. I think I still need to optimize some things so the site/pages load faster.
