How do you move pages?[edit]

This was asked on Talk:Oguta Lake, and I think it is a good question.

The process is quite simple, but complicated at first. First up, you'd have to understand the different kinds of spaces there. You don't need to know all of them, but there's four particular ones you need to know; Main, User, Template and Wikivoyage. File isn't really important unless you're a file mover, and there's only one member of this cafe who's a file mover on commons and free files shouldn't be uploaded here in the first place. There's a list of all the options with it

Before you do anything, pick which space you'll need to move it into. Most of the time, moves are from your userspace to main, or if you do a lot of work with templates like myself here, move from userspace to template. Keep this in mind.

So step one, click the More button on your top right corner. Unfortunately, mine here in the image will look slightly different since I've got some global gadgets enabled, but you can find it.

Step two, click the move button. Click the move button (mine has nothing in it, but it seems to work on the main page). Here's an image below.

Step three, here's where which space you'll want it in matters. From the list below, pick which one it is, if you're moving the page because the page name is incorrect or anything, you don't need to worry. This step mostly applies if you're drafting an article in your sandbox and want to move it to mainspace. Similarly, if you want to move a page between your userspace, (such as User:Foo/sandbox/Saki town to User:Foo/sandbox/Shaki town), leave it as User. It would automatically prefix the User: at the start of the pagename.

Namespaces that you can choose from

Step four, change the name to what you want to move it to. Really, there's nothing else in this step.

Step five, add the reason for your page move to the reason box. Don't write "Added content" though. And then click move. The page is moved. It may be confusing at first, and that was how I felt at the start of the year, but I've got the hang of it. Any questions, queries, or comments. Pop in a message on my talk page or below. I'll be sure to answer them ASAP.

It's also important to note that when moving a page, it moves the talk page along with it. The wikidata item will also be automatically updated.

Article status[edit]

Does the status ratings for articles update automatically or they have to be done manually? —The preceding comment was added by Timmylegend (talkcontribs)

It is done manually. We recently drafted an explanation about this at Wikivoyage:Article status. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 23:02, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Manually, but anyone can upgrade it, with the exception of guide to star. That goes in Wikivoyage:Star nominations. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 23:19, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification. Timmylegend (talk) 10:52, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
