Joomla 2.5 logged in user question

I want to display a link only for users logged in and part of the administrator group.  The administrator group seems to be group id 7 in J2.5

kind of like this

if ($userGroup = 'admin') {
 
show link

}

Anyone know the syntax would look for Joomla 2.5?

You need to access joomla user object.

To access user object use following code.After loading userobject in user variable you can acess usertype and add conditions according to user type as you need.
$user =& JFactory::getUser();
if($user->usertype =="Super Administrator")
{
  //code for admin
}

Open in new window

If the link is a menu item just select the appropriate group access.

For content you can use:
