Cascading protection doesn't apply to transcluded files
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  • Fully protect a page
  • Transclude a file onto the page (transclude, as in {{File:Foo.jpg}}, not showing the file)

Expected result:

  • File contents are protected

Actual result:

  • No protection cascades to the file page

Not sure if this is a bug or by design, since its pretty rare to transclude file pages

Do you mean the file page (file description) can still be edited? Or that the file itself is not protected (against reuploads)?
