Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Admins and stewards/Allow protection of multiple pages (from the same Category)

Allow protection of multiple pages (from the same Category)

  • Problem: Currently pages have to be protected one-by one. If there is a specific topic that is being vandalized or anything else to warrant protection, it would be nice if all the articles in that topic (or Category) could all be protected by one click.
  • Who would benefit: Administrators who need to protect various pages from the same topic by doing one at a time
  • Proposed solution: Add an option to allow administrators to be able to protect all pages from the same Category (or another criteria)

English Wikipedia has a tool called Twinkle; a quick test shows that the "p-batch" option does the job for a category. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 16:22, 7 November 2017 (UTC)[reply]
