FAQ: How do I move a wiki page?

Question

I have a wiki page in the wrong namespace/I have a wiki page with the wrong title. How do I move my page?

Answer

Answer: Use the “rename page” icon on the right side of the page when browsing from a PC or laptop. The icon looks like a paint roller.

If you are on a phone the only way is via the admin panel so just ask Wes to move it (send him a conversation message on the forum or a direct message on Discord)

Old method (not recommended):

  1. cut all the text from the old page (save it as empty to delete the page) and then
  2. paste it into the new page and save.
  3. After that, update the backlinks for the original page by editing the pages that link to it. The backlinks list is linked as a chain link icon floating to the right of each wiki page.
  4. This method is not recommended as it does not keep the page edit history and is a lot more work.

To create a new page, see: FAQ: How do I create a wiki page?.
