  • Full Protection - Only Administrators can edit
  • Cascading Protection - Applies full protection onto an article and every article that is transcluded onto the protected page.
Precondition
  • You have administrator privileges.
Step Action

2 Open the Edit button. Several buttons become visible. One of these is a Change protection button.
3 Click this button. A form appears.
4 Fill the form as required and click Confirm.
