FamilySearch Wiki:Moving a page
|This is an information page, and describes communal consensus on some aspect of FamilySearch Wiki norms and practices. While it is not a policy or guideline itself, it is intended to supplement or clarify other FamilySearch Wiki practices and policies. Please defer to the relevant policy or guideline in case of inconsistency between that page and this one.|
Pages may be moved to a new title if the previous name is inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or for a host of different housekeeping reasons such as that it is not the common name of the topic or it is an article that was created as a subpage and is ready to "go live". When a page is renamed, its page history is attached to the new name, and the previous title is automatically redirected to the new name (administrators have the option of suppressing the redirect).
When a page in the file namespace (that is, images and media) is moved, the associated file is moved as well.
Pages in category namespace cannot be moved.
