Description Daniel Arnold 2006-02-11 12:17:27 UTC
The new semi-protection feature misses a specific informational text for users that are not allowed to 
edit these pages: 
Currently there exist for normal protection: 
* MediaWiki:Protectedpagewarning (only visible by sysops) 
* MediaWiki:Protectedtext (visible to all users that are not sysops) 
For semi-protection there is: 
* MediaWiki:Semiprotectedpagewarning (visible to all users that are allowed to edit) 
* Users that are not allowed to edit get the MediaWiki:Protectedtext as well as 
MediaWiki:Semiprotectedtext has no effect if it exists. 
So I would like to have MediaWiki:Semiprotectedtext in order to be able writing a better fitting 
statement designed for semi-protection and not a general notice in MediaWiki:Protectedtext that covers 
all cases (okay some people can call this also a feature as it looks like if the page is completly 
protected ;-) ).

Problem. "Semi protection" isn't the complete story. MediaWiki doesn't really
have any concept of it, either; technically my addition of the
"semiprotectedpagewarning" message was a hack. "Protectedtext" needs to state
that the current user can't edit the page, and perhaps provide information about
the groups which can.
Comment 2 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2009-07-27 15:38:51 UTC
The protection level is passed in the $1 parameter in the message so you can use {{#ifeq:...}} or something else to switch beetween the two cases (at least in default configuration).
