> > > > #SESSION


#SESSION{parameter} displays data about a connected visitor. A session may be considered as a set of some data, stored on the server whilst the visitor is still connected. As such, this data can be retrieved and re-used when the visitor changes pages by navigating through the site.

The existence of this tag, as with the #AUTORISER tag, generates a different cache for each authenticated visitor on the site, and one more additional cache for the non-authenticated visitors.


Display the name of the visitor if it is known:

  1. #SESSION{nom}

Display a notice if the visitor is authenticated, that is, if the visitor has an id_auteur value:

  1. [(#SESSION{id_auteur}|oui) You have been authenticated]
