Wikiversity custodians can protect pages from edits, name changes, and recreations. Protection is most often used to deter vandalism. For example, this page is editable by anyone as it is not protected. The procedure to protect a page is to put any of several page protection templates on the page.
When a page is fully protected only Custodians can edit, move, or recreate the page.
When a page is move protected the page can only be moved to a new name using the "move" button by registered users or custodians. Pages protected from edits and movs are listed at Special:Protectedpages.
When Cascading protection is used, all images and templates on a page are also protected.
