Description Rémi Kaupp 2008-12-22 21:46:43 UTC
When moving a page, there used to be an option (on WMF wikis) to automatically rename subpages as well, which has been de-activated due to misuse.

While I understand the reasons for de-activating it, a compromise could be sought by showing, upon moving a page, the presence of subpages which would need renaming too (with either a link to "Special:Prefixindex/[Page]/" if there are such subpages, or the full list of subpages).

This would ease the task of renaming while still preventing misuse.

Thanks.

It's not deactivated, it's just admin-only.

You can try Pathoschild's AJAX sysop script: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Pathoschild/Scripts/Ajax_sysop

My bad. I should have checked instead of relying on the Village pump's comments. It works indeed. I guess you can just close the bug.

Thank you for the answer...
Comment 3 Hercule 2008-12-22 22:14:36 UTC
The idea is to give the information to non sysop users. Then they know sub pages has to be also moved.

This could be extend to double redirects (that were automaticly resolved for few month)
Comment 4 Mike.lifeguard 2008-12-22 22:18:38 UTC
Sorry, that script adds subpages on the deletion form, not the move form. Though it's probably very easy to add.
Comment 5 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2009-02-18 21:48:18 UTC
fixed in r47469.
