Hi James,

It is very easy to set. You need to open your wiki page Site.PageActions, 

and there, edit the page to have something like:

(:if auth edit:)
* [[{*$FullName} | $[View] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=edit | $[Edit] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=diff | $[History] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=upload | $[Attach] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=logout | $[Logout] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=login | $[Login] ]]
* [[{*$FullName}?action=print | $[Print] ]]

Note: there are some codes with %item% before the links which may be left.

Then save the page, and it will be like you asked: the page "actions" will 
appear only to logged in users (who can edit).
