thank you for your reply -- sorry for being unclear.
Using Mediawiki 1.8.2, I'm talking about the [Protect] tab at the top of
a page. When somebody creates a page, the page is not protected (the tab
is labeled "Protect"). When I then go in there, non of the protection
levels is selected (i.e. the page is unprotected). I can then select a
specific level in the list and save and all is good (the page is
protected, on-page edit links disappear etc.)
What I want is that all newly created pages are automatically protect
with one of the levels...
Hope this made things more clear, thanks for supporting me on this,

Hi there !
How can I auto-protect pages when they are created? I.e. I want all
newly created pages to have a specific protection level by default...
how can I do this?
Thanks for your help and best regards,
Your question is not clear: you can set the protection on pages using a
few ways, and this will apply from the beginning = their creation.
I guess you already know about user rights and protection in mediawiki,
but as it seems that nobody has yet answered your post, I give a few links:
don't forget to have a look at the Talk paged of these articles: often,
you will find experiences and tips on how users founds solutions to
specific problems (for example, how to protect a specific namespace)
Do post again, explaining what the specificity of the protection is if
you need more advice... and **do** give the version of your mediawiki.
Some solutions only apply since 1.6 1.7 or 1.8.
Hope it helps
