    Test if a page is being accessed from the administrative area Link to this post

    How can I test if a page is being accessed from the administrative area?

    function canView() {
          if( IF_YOU_ARE_IN_THE_ADMINISTRATIVE_AREA ) {
             return true;
          } else {
             return false;
          }
    }

    Thanks to Martijn and simon_w for helping with this in the forums.

    Controller::curr() can be used to test the object type.

    And SSViewer::current_theme() can be used to for a theme.

    For example,

    function canView() {
          if(SSViewer::current_theme()===null) {
             return true;
          }
          else {
             return false;
          }
    }
