The problem of security has been resolved more quickly than I thought.
LunarPages, the web host for the Grammar Captive website offers its users something called Shared SSL.
Already I have incorporated Shared SSL into those webpages that request personal information from users.
You can read about how Shared SSL works under the new subheading called Internet Security on the Grammar Captive homepage.
Added a link to the HKLNA Project on the Grammar Captive Blog page. Included is a brief explanation about the project and its relationship to Grammar Captive and the GC Host.
Fixed the awkward wording and linkage that appears when you click on GC Tutor under Products in the Grammar Captive navigation bar.
Have selected a name for the Grammar Captive newsletter and reformatted the sign-up page accordingly.
Look under the heading Info/Newsletter in the navigation panel of the homepage and sign up!
Changed the ColorBox window centering option (fixed) from true to false so that the contents of the box are more viewable on small screen mobile devices.
In the end the Grammar Captive website is designed for computer use. It is NOT a mobile application. This latter will come later.
You can now sign up for Seven Gates, the Grammar Captive weekly newsletter, in three different places: under the heading Info/Newsletter, under the heading Products/Podcasts, and at the end of the 7th Gate on the new Grammar Captive splash panel.
All of these are, of course, accessible on the www.grammarcaptive.com homepage.
All seven gates of the Grammar Captive splash panel are now up and running.
It is not quite as good as I would have liked and tried to accomplish, but there is a limit on how much time one can devote to any single task.
In the end I believe that you will find it quite satisfactory. For now, the user can easily click his way through the totality of Grammar Captive in a well-organized fashion without ever truly entering the site.
Any further refinements will come at a much later date.
The expanded splash panel is nearly finished, and work will soon begin on Grammar Captive’s first podcast. The launch will be modeled after that suggested by John Lee Dumas. at Podcasters’ Paradise.
There is one major hurdle still to overcome before the launch, however — password security.
Also currently in the works is the Grammar Captive biweekly newsletter.
Grammar Captive is looking forward to a very exciting “SPRING” forward!
As of today Grammar Captive is advertised in the Education section of the International Examiner, Seattle’s International Districts’ local bi-weekly English language newspaper.
The trial run will last six-months.
