I want to rename block on my wiki NationalR2D2. I want to call it "Arrest".

Search in Special:AllMessages for what you want to change. --CharitwoTalk 19:40, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much.--The Kool Egg... That Rox... That Rox Too Well 14:25, July 27, 2011 (UTC)

But how exactly do I do that? The Kool Egg... That Rox... That Rox Too Well 14:28, July 27, 2011 (UTC)

If you want to change the URL of the special page (for example moving Special:Block to Special:Arrest), you can't as it's all hardcoded. You can however use Charitwo's method to change the title that appears on top of Special:Block. To do that, check the original title (in this case "Block user", go to Special:AllMessages and find the message that contains this text (In this case MediaWiki:blockip-title) and edit that to anything you want. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 14:51, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
