In the current version (pmwiki-2.2.17) that ability now seems to be gone for users without attr authorization: they now just see "(protected)" even if they have the right to read the page.

Slightly hacky, but should work provided that the @nopass is set
directly for the page, and not inherited from the GroupAttributes

Add to a config file:

$FmtPV['$NoReadPasswd'] = "(trim(@\$page['passwdread']) === '@nopass')
? 'true' : 'false'";

and then try the conditional:

(:if {*$NoReadPasswd}:)1(:else:)0(:ifend:)
