API does not support new protected titles system
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The API fails to realize that pages protected with protection type "create" are, indeed, protected. For example the page [[Deletion log]] is protected this way, but
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&prop=info&inprop=protection&titles=Deletion%20log does not mention this. Instead there should be:

[protection]

[pr type="create" level="sysop" expiry="infinity" /]

[/protection]

(I don't know if Bugzilla can format entities and there's no preview...)


Version: 1.12.x

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
