There is a conditional: (:if authid:)
"Displays following text only if user is authenticated, i.e. logged in
with a valid user name and password via optional AuthUser
authentication scheme."

You could use that to show/hide text for instance in  a SideBar
for not logged in visitors, like for instance
(:if authid:)this is private(:else:)this is public(:endif:)

To define custom PV called {$Public} which is either 'Yes' or 'No'
you could do this in config:

if (@$GLOBALS["AuthId"] > "") $FmtPV['$Public'] = "No"
else $FmtPV['$Public'] = "Yes";

hope this helps!
