If you're splitting because it's too long. You want the folders or split sections to be about the same length.

First, you'll need to decide on names of choice. In this case, YMMV/NightwatchLiterature, YMMV/NightwatchFilmAdaption, and YMMV/NightwatchDiscworld were chosen based on medium/series, with "adaption" added to the end of the film version for aesthetic value. If there were multiple works in the same medium with the same name (such as Franchise/SherlockHolmes or {{Dracula}} or anything of that nature), the names for the articles would have any subtitles, or if those aren't usable, the year of creation. See Film.CaptainAmerica for an example of such a split. If you're not sure how to title the pages, make a thread in Trope Repair Shop and ask for help splitting the page.

If you need to hard split a trope page, you'll need the assistance of a [[Administrivia/KnowTheStaff moderator]]. Post a request on AskTheTropers with your explanation.

Now, we'll need to move all the information to the new pages. See HowToMoveAPage for the full list of steps on how to move information from one page to the other. The result should look like this:

As an example, we're going to look at the soft split that was done for the example on HowToMoveAPage. We're going to be looking at a Characters page that's being moved over, so our data is already existent. If you were starting a blank page, you would simply add the header for the appropriate version of the work or whatever you need done. This is done so people don't get confused if they come looking for a movie and you were talking about a book or some such circumstance.

Click save once satisfied, do this for all the pages you're creating. You'll need to custom title the new pages to add parenthesis to the after title component, as well as add any punctuation. See HowToMakeACustomTitle.

In most cases of hard splitting, somebody tried to lump two works/tropes together, and it's become something of a mess. Remakes are also common, as in most cases they're two different works with the same name and NameSpace. Or, you'll be splitting a subpage like YMMV that several works get used on. In this example, we'll be splitting the YMMV page YMMV.NightWatch because there's a 1)literature series 2)film adaption of the literature series 3)a Literature/{{Discworld}} novel. Normally, a subpage this small would not be hard split, however screenshots were desired for this how to page.
