We have a normal site with a normal SSL setup. We have a few pages that need to be secure - like the cart page; login; create account; etc.

But, the rest of the site is basically informational and we don't care if people use SSL or not. 

Right now, we have "SSL Enforced = True" because we wanted to be sure that the secure pages would serve over SSL. Is there a way that SSL can be optional everywhere, but enforced on specific pages?

Without checking, just turn off the enforced option and make sure that the special pages are marked as secure.

if you check enable and enforce SSL, DNN will use https for pages with "use SSL" enabled and switch back to http for all others. Host and admin pages have SSL enabled by default.
