It is probably waste of computing power to use memc as it is only called during editing, and then the cache will always be rebuilt. Jeblad 18:10, 28 May 2008 (UTC)


After "installing" this I can't access my wiki at all. Just get a blank page, html source code shows nothing. On version 1.13.3. I also have PHPBB/Users_Integration. / Erik 03:19, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Extension Status?Edit

This extension is listed as being in "Beta" version but there's no discussion in the past 8 years. Any reason not to change status to unsupported?

Updated versionEdit


I checked and modified the old not working version so i could use it with MediaWiki 1.25.5

i have adapted the error in an alternative module below the original files Extension:ProtectText/ProtectText.php and Extension:ProtectText/ProtectText.i18n.php

NOTE: THE TAG IS NOW <protectABC> text to be protected </protectABC> 
      {§protected fragment§} is identical

add the following to Manual:LocalSettings.php

require_once( "$IP/extensions/ProtectABCText/ProtectABCText.php");

Updated version broken in 1.27.1Edit

I had this working perfect in my previous version of MediaWiki (1.26.2) but now it allows a normal user to remove the whole section containing <protectABC> Cardcaptor Stacey (talk) 14:01, 23 November 2016 (UTC)


There are still one site that uses this extension. (Seems to be dead?) Even so, I believe it should be archived. Jeblad (talk) 21:20, 2 October 2019 (UTC)
