How Do I Change the Page Name?:

Most likely a retarded question but...

I made a page for a fanfiction entry, but now the title of the story has been changed. How do I change the page name to match it without accidentally making a brand new page? :S
You can use the custom title function on the left, but because it's a completely different name, you shouldn't use it, because it can be confusing to readers. Instead, make a new page with the correct title, transfer the page information over, and make the old page into a redirect.

“Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?”
Okay, will do! :)

Eeeeeh... I have a new problem. I read the instructions for making a redirect, and it just isn't working.

The link is red and shows as being in "Main" instead of "Fanfic" :S I already made the page it's supposed to redirect to because the alternative instruction was to just type the name of the new page into the url.

Seeking for Light
The redirect should look like [[redirect:FanFic/NewNameOfWorkHere]] . From your description, it sounds like you forgot to put in the namespace when writing the redirect.
Ah, that seems to work, thank you! :)

EDIT: NEVERMIND. It's working. Note to self: Do not trust previews.

A related question. I have made a Death Note Equestria work page. Someone has changed it to Deathnote Equestria. I don't want an editing war over how it is supposed to be spelled Instead I would like to make both versions work for links.

So, how do I add alternative title to a page?
You can't. The page is at Death Note Equestria. To the wiki parser, Death Note Equestria and Deathnote Equestria are the same thing and go to the same page. No need to do anything.

What goes around, comes around
what goes up, must come down
In uffish thought
Capitalisation like that isn't a whole separate page — Death Note Equestria and Deathnote Equestria both go to the same place, they just display differently. I've gone through the wicks to make sure they're done correctly so it won't be an issue in the future.

In the sidebar. See also Custom Title.

I want to change this title's name to say "Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Planes of Existence". How do I do that with the new site layout?

I'm in the middle of constructing a Korean Drama page for Temptation Of An Angel. Unfortunately, I lowercased of "Of" and "An", and it's causing me trouble. I sent a request to make a custom title, but think I need to alter the wiki word itself. Is that possible? And if not, do I have to do the page over again???

Ah, for that you need to ask for a Custom Title.
could I have one then?
I don't know how to do a custom title, could you change it

Go to Tools -> Customize Wikiword. Then add the link to the page and how you want the title to be displayed.

How do I change the page name for just a conventional trope and not a work? Now matter how I edited my YKTTW name and submitted it, it stayed the same. What do I do?
