This documentation is transcluded from Template:Protected title/doc.

This template is used at Commons:Protected against recreation. It transcludes a nonexistent page that is to be protected from creation through the use of cascading protection. If the page exists, a "delete page" link is provided. If an item is listed prior to deletion, the page with cascading protection enabled must have its cache purged before the protection will take effect. If this is done before the page is deleted, the page will be protected in that state (not automatically deleted).


Parameters used by this template:

  • pg (or first unnamed parameter) — Name of page to protect from creation. Do not include the namespace; use the ns parameter to specify that.
  • reason (or second unnamed parameter) — Reason why page is protected (optional).
  • ns — Namespace of page. Must be given if the page is not in article space.
  • talk — Whether a link to the talk page should be given. The link will be provided unless talk=no is specified. Suppressing the link is useful if there is no realistic possibility that constructive discussion will occur (e.g. nonsense page titles) or if the talk page also is protected against creation.
