This page http://avidflyer.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Towing 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)

Feel free to add details for both. Thanks, Sarah@fandom (help forum | blog) 19:14, December 5, 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)
