What if the same page already exists? Edit
What happens if the same pagename exists on the target wiki? If one exports a set of pages from a source wiki and then imports those pages into a wikia site / target, and that page name is already present in the target, what happens? Does the new content overwrite the existing content? Does the new content get put into the end of the existing content? Rauterkus 17:23, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
- The import will overwrite the original page AFAIK. Mark (talk) 17:32, October 9, 2010 (UTC)
- The history of the import file is merged into the page. Frozen Wind 18:53, December 5, 2010 (UTC)
