Out with the old, in with the new

If you’ve ever misspelled the name of a wiki page, or created a page that didn’t turn out exactly as you had hoped, you’ll be happy to know that we’ve just added the ability to delete or rename a page.

Space organizers can get a list of all pages in their space by clicking Manage Space under the Actions menu on the left side, and then clicking List Pages under the Space Contents submenu on the main page. Next to each page listed, there is a Delete link and a Rename link.

To delete the page permanently, click the Delete link. You will be taken to a page that lists all pages that reference the page to be deleted. You can navigate to each of these pages to remove the references, or you can ignore them, and the links will behave as other links to empty pages. At the bottom of the list is a Delete button. When you are sure that you want to permanently delete the page, click this button. The page contents will be removed, and an entry will be added to the changelog that shows that the page was deleted.

To rename a page, the process is very similar. Click the Rename link next to the page name you wish to rename. Again, a list of links that reference this page will be displayed. These references will not be automatically updated. When you are finished updating these references, and are sure you wish to rename the page, enter a new, valid wiki name in the text box, and click the Rename button.
