[Auth_Admin] checks the current authentication values which were sent with the HTTP header. If they correspond to the username and password of the global administrator then no action is performed. The page is process normally with the permissions of the global administrator.

Otherwise, the visitor is prompted with an authentication dialog. They will not be able to see the format file which contains this tag unless they specific the username and password of the global administrator.

This tag works similarly to the [Auth] tag.




No Parameters Required.
