This module provides a way to retrieve the expiry of a restriction over a given action on a page.
== Usage ==
This module will use up to 1 expensive parser function call each time it is ran. It will not use any if [[Module:Effective protection level]] was already called.
=== From other modules ===
To load this module:
<source lang="lua">
local effectiveProtectionExpiry = require('Module:Effective protection expiry')._main
The function accepts two parameters. The first is a string containing the action to check, which must be one of "edit", "create", "move", "upload", or "autoreview". The second is optional, and can either be the name of the page to check, or a title returned from the mw.title functions. If the second parameter is omitted, the page being displayed is the one checked against. The return value is a string containing the name of the group required to perform the given action.
It is not yet possible to retrieve the expiry for pending changes protection ("autoreview" action), so it returns 'unknown' in that case.
Note that if the page is not protected for the requested action, this will return 'infinity'. You need to check separately with [[Module:Effective protection level]].
=== From wikitext ===
The parameters are the same as when it is called directly.
 {{tlinv|Effective protection expiry|''action''|''title''}}
