Here is how to rename an OpenWetWare page:

  1. Click on the Movetab.png tab at the top of the page you want to move.
  2. In the To new title: box, enter your new page name.
  3. In the Reason box, enter a quick note about the reason. For instance, adherence to OWW naming conventions is a common reason for renaming pages.
  4. Click the Movepagebutton.png button.
  5. You'll see the message: The page has been moved.


Note that moving a page automatically results in the old page becoming a redirect to the new page. Thus, links to the old page will continue to function.

To change links so that they point directly to the new page, do the following:

  1. Go to the new page.
  2. Click Whatlinkshere.png on the left side of the page under toolbox.
  3. You'll be taken to a list of pages that link to the page either directly or via a redirect.
  4. You can then visit each of those pages individually and edit the links there so that they point directly to the new page name.
