In the GCwiki context, the terms move and rename are synonymous. You can rename a page by moving it.

There are several reasons why you might wish to rename a page:

  • the title has been misspelled.
  • the title does not follow the GCcollab Wiki’s naming conventions
  • the scope of the article has been reduced, extended or otherwise changed
  • to establish a sub page hierarchy

Why should I move/rename a page, instead of creating a new one?

Instead of cutting and pasting the contents of the older article into a newly created article, using the move tab has the following advantages:

  • The history and discussion pages are preserved with the move.
  • All other pages that link to it will be automatically redirected to the newly named page.

How to move a page

  1. Log in
  2. Go to the page you want to move
  3. Click the move tab at the top of the article
  4. Type the new name for the page
  5. Choose whether you also want to move the page's talk page.
  6. Indicate why you are moving the page.
  7. Click the move page button and the page will be renamed to the new title
