Hello Pm,

thanks for your help, it works the way you told me. Using Userauth it´s important not to grant edit_all rights, but only edit-rights.
Is there a way to include a tab for the admin ,something like Protect-Page?

And another question. I'd like to change the message of "Enter password for...". In which file can i do this?
