The new title should be chosen so the above characters are not used. New pages will be created and {{page_title|The Existing Page Title}} will be used to set the page title. Old redirects can be deleted.


  1. When you visit a page, click "What links here" and open that link in a new window. This will show existing links to that page.
  2. Make a {{page_title|}} variable for a certain page that contains the existing page title as it is and insert it at the top of the page.
  3. Move the page to a new clean title that doesnt have the above characters.
  4. Use the list of links in step 1, to see where you have to update the links for that page. Use the format [[URL name|Page Title]] for linking.
