This is the documentation page. It should be transcluded into the main template page. See Template:Documentation for more information

This template is used to mark a page for moving to a different name. It is preferable to start a discussion on the talk page of the page when using this template, to prevent potential conflicts.

Pages with this template on are added to Category:Pending move.

Usage

{{Move
| 1 = Suggested destination
| 2 = Second suggested destination
| reason = Additional reason
| discussAnchor = Talk page section
| discussPage = Talk page changer
| export = To move the page to a different wiki
| admin = If the move can only be done by admins
}}
  • The |1= parameter set the suggested new name for the page.
  • The |2= parameter set another suggested new name for the page.
  • The |reason= parameter add an additional reason note.
  • The |discussAnchor= parameter changes the section name where the "discuss" button will lead on the talk page. It is added to the default talk page or the one set by the parameter below.
  • The |discussPage= parameter changes the talk page where the "discuss" button will lead.
  • The |export= parameter changes the message of the template to one suited for exporting to other wikis. Also adds the page to the Category:Pending exportation instead of the normal one.
  • The |admin= parameter adds an extra note which says that the move can only be done by an administrator. Also adds the page to the Category:Pending move requiring admin instead of the normal one.
