Well I'll try...

Assume site is http://elfden.co.uk/

Google checkout level 2 interaction contacts your site but only via
https. So rather than have the link be something like this:
i.e. not directly via wordpress - where I would have to try and
include WP scripts correctly
I would prefer the url to be something like:
ie via the wordpress installation

I may also end up adding  a variable like ?checkoutgoogle to the url as well.

So far as I am aware this isn't currently possible.

It's like having the blog accessible via 2 different url's
http://elfden.co.uk/  &  https://ssl.sharedserver.co.uk/~elfden/

I hope that makes it clearer.


my mind is on a permanent tangent
