Description

This task is for the quick updating of links to an article, image, or category that has been moved to a new name.

In order to prevent false positives where a longer article name contains a shorter one (e.g. Category:Mursaat is contained in Category:Mursaat Bosses), each of the replacement operations given below will actually consist of three find/replace rules, one for each of the possible characters that can follow an article name in a wikilink.

[[old][[new]
[[old|[[new|
[[old#[[new#

Articles

AWB will make a list from "What links here" to the old article name. On each page in this list, AWB will perform the following replacement:

Categories

Articles in category

Since AWB is currently unable to make a list from categories on Wikia wikis, the list of articles assigned to the old category will have to be manually saved to a local file (methods for doing so can be found here). Using the category task "Replaced category:", AWB will perform the following replacement:

Old Cat NameNew cat name

AWB will make a list from "What links here" to the old category name. On each page in this list, AWB will perform the following replacement:
