Notes from Laurent (Nekoniaow)

Moving pages across namespaces

I am in the process of re-organizing pages so they make better use of the namespace hierarchy.

This implies moving around pages in the namespace hierarchy, which unfortunately does not seem to be automated by DokuWiki so this has to be done following this procedure:

  • Create a copy of the page under the proper namespace.
  • Correct all links to the original page to point to the new copy.
  • Delete the original page.

As you can see, the “moved” pages thus do not inherit the history of the originals, which is a big inconvenient.

It would be really useful if there was a way to automatically migrate pages from one namespace to another while:

  • preserving existing links to the migrated pages
  • preserving the history of the migrated pages
