This is a general template for producing protection banners and padlock icons. It can be used with any protection reason, any protection action, and any protection level.

Usage

{{pp
| 1        = reason
| small    = yes/no
| action   = action
| expiry   = expiry
| date     = protection date
| user     = username
| section  = talk page section name
| category = no
}}

Parameters

All parameters are optional.

  • 1 - the reason that the page was protected. If set, this must be one of the values listed in the reasons table.
  • small - if set to "yes", "y", "1", or "true", a padlock icon is generated instead of a full protection banner.
  • action - the protection action. Must be one of "edit" (for normal protection), "move" (for move-protection) or "autoreview" (for pending changes). The default value is "edit".
  • expiry - the expiry date of the protection. This can be a date (for temporary protection), or one of the strings "indef", "indefinite", "indefinitely", or "infinite" (for indefinite protection). If this is a date, it must be valid input to the second parameter of the #time parser function.
  • date - the protection date. This must be valid input to the second parameter of the #time parser function. This argument only has an effect for the "office" and "reset" reasons.
  • user - the username of the user to generate links for. As of July 2014, this only has an effect when the "usertalk" reason is specified.
  • section - the section name of the protected page's talk page where discussion is taking place. This works for most, but not all, values of reason.
  • category - categories are suppressed if this is set to "no", "n", "0", or "false".
