Session Asp.net admin

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Hi Experts,

I build a web page in asp.bet VB, in which I am integrating a very simple "CMS" by creating a page which would update a page content using the fck editor. Now my next step is to only show the edit page link to logged in users, and I am kinda stuck on how to do this. Below you can see how I am logging admin user, and how the link appears no matter if admin is logged in or no.. .
 User should see this link  if the user has authenticated as a site administrator.  How do I do this??

<%@ Page Title="" Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="login.aspx.vb" Inherits="login" %>
<script runat="server">

Public Sub Login(ByVal s As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

        If UserName.Text = "admin" And Password.Text = "physician" Then
            Session("Admin") = True
            Session("Admin") = False
            LtlLogin.Text = "<p>Sorry you have provided incorrect login details.</p>"
        End If
End Sub

Protectected Page code behind

    Protected Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Init

        If HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated Then
            Dim MyPage As String = LCase(Left(System.IO.Path.GetFileName(Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")), InStr(System.IO.Path.GetFileName(Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")), ".") - 1))
            Response.Write("<a href='/RgvPreffered/admin.aspx?page=" + MyPage + "'>Edit this page</a>")
        End If

    End Sub
