http to https and back... was created by larralex
According to law in a growing number of countries, personal data should be gathered through secured connections (https), but running the entire site in https goes to lack of performance. So it would be nice to have registration, login and profile edit over https and then switching back to http.

Any opinions?

Well, clearly it's only you and I that want this...or maybe just nobody saw this post?

I have to be PCI DSS compliant due to my store on my joomla site, so I've got to figure out a way to do cb_login in ssl then return to http.

I guess I'll explore the extensions to see if anything is posted.

This is so important, I wish it could be the default for cb and joomla.

CB login module has params to allow switchover to https.

It is only since joomla 1.0.14 that switchover forth and back from http don't loose the login, but most browsers will issue a warning when switching back from https to http, so it's usually not a good idea to switch back.
