If you set your greenhouse on slabs, make sure the upper surface isn't 'riven' as that lets water drain in whenever it rains!

I have outbuilding running North/South and want to use the West facing wall as the back of a "Half Greenhouse" I want to erect. It is always very light there but in the height of the Summer the Sun does not "Get Onto It " 'til at least Midday I only want to grow Summer Produce in it, do you suitable ?

Although the article about positioning a greenhouse was helpful, it doesn't say about placing it in the sun, shade or a combination. Where I am proposing to put mine is in full sun all year more or less. Is this OK?

Depends on what you want it for, I think.  Just getting your seedlings started, then leaving empty the rest of the year?  Growing on tomatoes, melons, etc over the summer?  Overwintering plants?  

I saw one somewhere that was cleverly positioned near a deciduous tree, spring and winter were full sunlight.. but during the hottest part of summer it had afternoon dappled shade.

I'd have it in full sun. You can always add shade, but you can never "add" sun.
