Renaming pages and Structures in TikiWiki

As time goes on with your TikiWiki site, some pages may need to be renamed to better represent your wiki information. “Pages” and “Structures” are the basis of your TikiWiki site structure. The following sections will explain how to rename the pages and structures in TikiWiki.

Note! The page name is a part of the URL. For example:

http://your-tiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=My+TikiWiki+learning+site

The “My+TikiWiki+learning+site” part of the URL is the page name in TikiWiki. If anyone visits the old url, they will get a page not found. TikiWiki will not set up redirects on pages that are renamed. To have the old page redirect to the new page name, you will need to set up a redirect in TikiWiki.
