Note: Only administrators are permitted to protect a page. (See also: Protection Policy)

In certain cases it may be necessary to protect a page from being edited. The MediaWiki software provides for a simple mechanism by which all edits that are not made by administrators are forbidden.

  1. Select the "protect" tab at the top of the page for the article to be protected.
  2. Choose a protection level, either "Block unregistered users" or "Sysops only".
  3. If you want to change the move permissions separate from the edit permissions, check the "Unlock move permissions" and choose a protection level for moves.
  4. Enter a descriptive reason for why the page is being protected.
  5. Click "Confirm".

After you click "Confirm", the protection will be implemented by the MediaWiki software, and it will be logged in the protection log.

In order to unprotect a page, follow the same procedure (except the tab is labeled "unprotect"), but give a reason why the page is to be unprotected.
