This page is a template. It contains no Arch Linux-related information, but should be used as part of other articles. For more information, read Help:Template.

Please do not experiment with this template; you could ruin all pages using this template. If you want to edit this template, copy the text to Template:Sandbox, edit and test it there, and copy it back when it works.

Feel free to voice your opinion regarding this template.

A "move" flag used to suggest renaming of an article.

Usage

This template should be added at the beginning of articles with misleading names. Ensure to rationalize the proposed move with the second argument and possibly also on the flagged article's discussion page.

{{Moveto|Target Article Name|reason}}

You can override the default discussion page with a third optional argument:

{{Moveto|Target Article Name|reason|Talk:Alternative Page}}

You can point to a specific section in the default talk page with the named section parameter:

{{Moveto|Target Article Name|reason|section}}

Flagged pages can be found in Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Moveto. Users are encouraged to participate in move discussions or simply complete the move (if sensible). The {{Moveto}} flag should be removed after the move is completed or the proposal is rejected.

Example

{{Moveto|Template:Move|This is just a demonstration template.}}
