          Why would you want to make the store unsecure for non-registered users. If I went to a store that wasn't secure I would not even consider registering to buy anything. This is not a good idea and I would not recommend that you proceed with this idea based on what information you have given us.

            I believe they mean that the only part of the store that need to be secure are the registration pages (where they are entering personal info) and the checkout pages (when they are entering payment info). Browsing and adding to the cart does not need to be secure.

              bregent is correct, the question pertians to having the option to make certain page unsecured- if desired.

                in your code, make the links for those items a full URL starting with
                "https" instead of "http"

                  https://store.mysite.com (which is ssl protected) can bu un-protected by linking to http://store.mysite.com

                  is it that simple ?

                    well, as long as you have the SSL certificate installed on your server, I
                    believe so. I'm sure if I'm over simplifying things, Murray or Dave or Walt
                    (or Nancy, Alan, etc...) will chime in and correct me

                      Sounds right to me.
