Help:How to rename a page


To rename a page, click on the rename link in the left side bar and enter the namespace:new name, i.e. "Person:John Doe."

Some things to remember:

  • The namespace cannot be changed. A person page cannot become a place or family page. If you have a page in the wrong namespace, please add a new page in the proper namespace. Copy the information to the new page and insert the Help:Speedy Delete template at the top of the page.
  • When you try to rename the page, you may see notice saying there is already a page by that name and asking if you wish to delete the original page and replace it with this page. Do not delete the original page if other pages link to the original. Back page to the new page and open a second window with the original page and and redirect it to original page.
