How to rename, move, or delete a topic

You can now rename, move and delete individual topics from your browser. All three options are available by clicking the [Rename/Move] on the lower toolbar. The access settings for a particular page, web or entire site may disable one or more of the three options. In any case, all three are similar and extremely self-explanatory on-screen.

  1. On the topic you want to change, click Rename/move
  2. To move or delete, from the pull-down menu, select the target web ("Trash" for delete); otherwise, leave on the current web
  3. To rename, fill in new WikiName, or leave the default current topic anme
  4. You will be warned if there are locks or if there is a name clash - adjust accordingly, or [Cancel]
  5. A list of pages that link to the topic will be listed, checked by default: checked links will be updated; clear the checkbox to prevent any unwanted changes
  6. Click [Rename/Move]: the topic will be renamed and links to the topic updated.
    • If any of the referring pages are locked then they will be listed. You can correct these later by again pressing Rename/Move.

Note: Deleting means moving the topic to the Trash web. Since all webs share the one Trash, name conflicts may come up.

See ManagingTopics for more details.
