In-progress patch for bug 1735 and bug 675 (27.64 KB, patch)
2005-12-21 12:21 UTC, Brion Vibber

Description Aphaia 2005-03-23 01:31:44 UTC
When a page is protected from moving, this page has an "edit" botton but no
"move" bottn for normal users. But for sysops it seems to have three bottons:
"edit", "unprotect" and "move". In other words, it looks for sysops as same as
unprotected page from moving. So it causes confusion sometimes. And on
Protection.log there is no difference between totally protected pages and only
protected from moving unless the sysop who protected the page clarified in its
summary. I expect the interface on the page will be improved and "protection
from moving" will be recorded on the log automatically.

In-progress patch for bug 1735 and bug 675

* Redoes the protection form totally
* Adds the exact details of the page_restrictions field to the protection log
* Adds user_registration timestamp field
* Replaces User::isNewbie() hack with autoconfirm implicit group/privilege and
$wgAutoconfirmAge to trigger after a certain time since registration

Could perhaps make additional changes...

This is currently live at, testing welcome.
