This page was set up as a category page, then a user edited it as a content page. I want to move the content to a new page named "Trailer Towing" and restore the original category page. However there is no Move link at the top of the page. What's the best way to do this? --N757jh 01:12, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Good question. I'm not sure what is happening - I'll ask. Edit: it appears this may be on purpose, in order to prevent category redirects. You will have to cut and paste the article contents. Kirkburn (talk) 14:57, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Wilco. Thanks for the assist. --N757jh 15:33, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

Facebook likes Edit

What happens to the Facebook likes for a page when you move it - do they stay at the old page, so the count begins again under the new name? ··gracefool 11:30, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Answer: They stay at the old page :( Added to the FAQ. ··gracefool 12:38, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Redirects Edit

Shouldn't there be a section about suppression of redirects when moving? — Bluefire2 (talk) 13:54, December 3, 2011 (UTC)

I had to ask this: Edit

I was able to rename pages, but I can't do it any more. I don't know what happened. My guess is you can't rename a page if a page is too old. Let's say a page was created more than a year ago, so you can't rename it any more. Am I wrong or right? If I am wrong, what is the reason to my not renaming a certain page, at the moment??? Please tell me, an admin who's not-so-professional. RomeoRomeo (talk) 16:04, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

Some pages might be protected by local admin so you cant rename it. if its your own wiki or wiki you administer you can contact staff it might be a bug. Minato(Talk) 16:36, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

How do I separate a file revision from an uploaded file? Edit

Hello, dear fellow wikians.

I have a question regarding the separation of files.

Just a few minutes ago, I uploaded a few images to our wiki via the Admin Dashboard, by using the Add Multiple Photos-tool.

When the upload was completed, I noticed that I (by sheer accident) uploaded two files, related to the same location, by the same filename instead of naming them "file.png" and "file 2.png".

So I ended up with "file.png" featuring two revisions instead.

Now I wanted to know how I am supposed to separate one revision, featuring the accidentally misnamed file, from the other, as I haven't seen any option to do so.

Even when I selected the older revision on its own, there was no way for me to rename that one revision's file, as I ended up renaming the whole file (including all two revisions) instead.

Does anyone know how I can separate a revision from a file to feature it as it's own, separate file?

I just wanted to know, in case this might happen again, as I am not the only admin on the wiki and want to share that knowledge with my fellow admins.

Thank you for reading this.

Hello, for separating file go to history of file and undo the new revision. you can re upload image. this type of questions are better asked in Special:Forum for quick reply.

Oh, well.

While I went and did exactly that, it's rather unfortunate.

So there's really no way to simply separate them?

Anyways, thank you so much for the quick reply despite my clumsy attempt at asking a question on a talk page instead of going for the obvious.

But there's something else I want to ask.

I heard, that the forum is soon going to be replaced by discussions.

What is up with that?

While I saw the discussions pop up at some wikis, they don't seem to have spread to all wikis so far.
