Changing protection on already-existing protection results in error
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: Courcelleswiki

So, a page is indef protected from moves; when I go in and change the edit protection (or pending changes protection) the move protection time selector does not go to "indefinite", it goes to "other time". (Even if I set a time for other protections). This results in an error when trying to save the page.

Shouldn't the existing protection and proper expiration show when modifying move protections? (Time-limited move protections work properly, the problem appears to be indefinite protections.) I've verified the problem on both en.wp and meta.
