Patch to implement this feature (9.61 KB, patch)
2004-11-23 11:18 UTC, Shane King

Description Andreas Hörstemeier 2004-11-12 10:40:06 UTC
Instead of protecting a page completely, for some pages it'd be handy to have
them protected against malicious (or controversy) page moving. This option
should be switched on by default for user pages (including the talk, but not
user subpages). Other pages occasionally target to page move vandalism were the
Village Pump, or VfD.

Patch to implement this feature

This patch adds a second checkbox to the protect article page, allowing
articles to be protected only from moves and not edits.

The format of cur_restrictions is changed from "group,group,group" to
"right=group,group,group:right=group,group,group". Current rights implemented
are edit and move. cur_restriction fields in the old format are treated as
though they specify edit and move.

Please don't remove wikibugs-l from the bug assignment, 
particularly unless you add it to the CC list.
Comment 3 Shane King 2004-11-24 12:56:49 UTC
Checked this into CVS for 1.4, marking as fixed.
