In-Portal uses two parameters in url to identify:
  • currently used site browse mode (browse/content/design) - "editing_mode" parameter
  • regular user or administrator is viewing the site - "admin" parameter

When administrator uses "Section Properties" button to edit currently viewed page in one of a browse modes, then these parameters are passed along to it.
As a result all link built on that "editing page" will have "editing_mode" and "admin" parameters present.

This has even more dramatic effect, when (in 5.2.0) is applied, since they are added to generated direct link too and admin will see different link.

Ready for testing.

Best Regards,
