Moving/Renaming Pages

Moving (renaming) a page means giving it another name, and is done by using the "move" tab. This renames the page, but also moves it's editing history, and leaves behind a redirect on the old page, so that links (which are not automatically changed) do not break.

See Mediawiki Help Moving a page, and Mediawiki Help Redirects.
