The goal of this website is to be a safe for souls website advancing Catholic thinking and education. When editing, please adhere to the Content Standards.
Some images have been enhanced for teaching purposes and may not be identical to the original artwork.
A protected page is a page where normal users are prevented from editing at all. Only a user with sysop permissions can edit a protected page. Likewise only sysop users can protect a page in the first place, or unprotect the page to lift the restriction.
There are several reasons why a particular page might be protected:
- On public sites, pages may be protected because they have been repeatedly targeted with vandalism, or where it is believed that vandalism would have a unusually severe impact.
- On corporate sites, pages may be protected when they contain statements which have been approved by management, and policy dictates that those statements can't be changed without following a certain approval process.
Page protection limits collaboration on the site content, and should be avoided where possible.
