To move (rename) a page:

  1. Go to the page
  2. Click the + icon near the top right
  3. Click Move

Note! Moving a page may break links to it from other pages. For this reason, you should generally check the box to create a redirect when moving a page, unless the page is very new and not linked from other pages.

Reasons to move a page[edit | edit source]

  • The current title contains spelling errors
  • The title doesn't follow our page naming conventions
  • The title is ambiguous or confusing
  • The topic has been shortened, extended, or changed from the original draft, and the title is no longer appropriate
  • The page belongs in a different namespace
  • Certain section of the page fits better as a section of a more complete page
  • A page needs to be merged with another, either because both are too similar or complement each other

Reasons why you may not be able to move a page[edit | edit source]

  • You're not logged in
  • The page is protected
  • There's already a page with the same title you want

How to move a section[edit | edit source]

To move only part of a page, simply cut and paste the text into a new page and summarize the reason and what content you are moving on the edit summary of the pages you're editing.

How to move a category page[edit | edit source]

Categories cannot be easily moved like other pages because every page in the category needs to be recategorized. If you want to move a category, please leave a message at the Village pump.
