Delete a Wiki Page

If you are not a wiki Administrator you cannot really delete a page but you can make it more or less invisible.

There are some considerations you should keep in mind when deleting a page.
  • Someone someday created the page you want to delete, so more than likely someone liked the information and thought it would be helpful to share it with the readers of this wiki. So make sure that the information you want to delete is not necessary anymore and/or join an (updated) version of that page into another existing page.
  • Maybe someone put a link to the page you want to delete on his/her own homepage, in the forum, in a different forum or somewhere else on the internet. It is always very annoying when you are surfing the internet and a page is not available anymore.

I suggest you do the following when you want to delete a page.
  1. Value the content of that page and if it is still valid, copy it to a place where it should be.
  2. Delete the content of the page and put a link to the new page in the old page. If the content was not valid anymore put a link to e.g. the Main page of this wiki.
  3. Remove the page from the TOC.

The page still exists this way, but more or less in a sleeping mode. If you don't know it exists it is difficult to find.
