3. Rename an article (move)

To give a page a new title, it has to be "moved". This means that the page along with its discussion page and its versions will be copied into a new file.
The old file remains for the time being and contains a redirect to the new page.

Rename page (Step-by-step)

  • Open the right navigation bar
  • Choose Move
  • Enter the new file name in the field Target (do not use special cases!)
  • If you want the page to be in a special namespace (e.g. a help page), enter it as well
  • A short Reason will help your colleagues to understand your steps
  • Click on Move page
