Special:ProtectedPages addition options: sort by protection date
Open, LowPublicFeature


Author: gerhchris

Simmilar bug:

There was a german discussion going on:

Aim is to see a list of the pages/articles that are protected for the longest time. The Solution for me seems to be interesting for all users, so a skin solution is not the right thing.

The Problem is, that at the moment the protection dates are not in the APi but in the log.

I would appretiate these filter and sorting options.


Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement

Is this actually an API bug, or is it a special page AND an api bug?

Actually I'm not a technical person. So I don't know

The time of protection is stored as a logentry and a revision in the database. You cannot use one of the date efficiently at the moment. You have to find the log entry/revision of the last protection, maybe there is a reprotection or so on, not easy.

I think this is a duplicate of bug 9361. I'll add the request for sorting there, so this bug should either be closed or re-assigned to implement the same feature in api (and made dependent of the other one).
