How can I access the session object? In the former template it was widely used and I could easily use the following statement:

<#if logged && session?exists && (session.isAdmin() || session.isModerator())>

But now the following error comes up:
freemarker.core.InvalidReferenceException: Expression session is undefined on line 66, column 162 in docware/header.htm.

Funny enough in the bottom.htm you aswell use the session object..
<#if session?exists && session.isAdmin()>

So.. uhm... how can I validate if a user is moderator / admin now?

"session" is always available. It is an instance of UserSession. It is included in JForum.java, line 196, and if bottom.htm uses it, all other templates can use it as well.

I found the actual error. The reason is changed behaviour in application logic, allowing module/action to be an array. I've modified my code for redirection and now it seems to work. The failure messages were very irritating ...
