    I've created a custom page template that I have code in the pageload event.  How can I check to see if I'm in admin mode so I can ignore the code when a user tries to edit the template.

    Hello Chris Wilper,

    Thank you for using our services.

    You can either check if the url contains cmspagemode=edit in the query string or check if the page is live like this:
    Telerik.Cms.Web.CmsPageBase page = this.Page as Telerik.Cms.Web.CmsPageBase;
    if (page.PageMode == Telerik.Cms.Web.CmsPageMode.Live)

    This can be used in the page load event. I would recommend this approach.

    Best wishes,
    Radoslav Georgiev
