As of version 0.50, it is not possible to delete articles, or change their name (in order to make links to the
new names).
So since sometimes, we need to refactor some parts of the wiki, changing names, and deleting articles, it would be valuable,
allow this kind of article management.

Thanks for your attention!

The ability to rename wiki pages is committed in rev 720.

Existing links that point to the old page are preserved
and automatically redirected to the new page (this behaviour
can be disabled when renaming the page).
The system handles reverse renamings and successive renamings.

One good point could be to list the orphan articles, and
then give the user the option to delete them or rename.

It's not a simple question to solve autamtically, so I
suggest that in the first instance it sould only allow to
rename, leaving the "hard word" for the user.
Another way, could be searching for old references and
replace them with the newer ones. But this could lead to
problems I think.

#5 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 13 years ago

I've just added the ability to delete wiki pages (rev 540). Permission
has to set explicitly for that.

Concerning page renaming, what behaviour do you expect for existing
links in others pages that point to the old name ?
A simple rename would break existing links to the page.
