Description Danny B. 2007-07-18 12:51:20 UTC
Although (semi-)protected page might be recognizible by having "view source" instead of "edit" tab, it would be more user friendly to mark these pages somehow in more visible way.

This is currently being solved by including templates such as {{Protected}}, but its automatical solution would be handy, since anything done manually can cause it won't be synchronized with actual situation.

Ideas for solutions as collected from users suggestions:
* some kind of image (eg. lock) shown somewhere
* different color of header (page title)
* small line with text such as "this page is (semi-)protected", probably linking to protect log, in place where other additional infos are such as "redirected from foo" or links to parent pages
* any other...
