     1.8 +How do I delete or rename a topic?

    1.10 +---++ Answer:
    1.11 +
    1.12 +These two questions are answered together because often when you think you want to delete a page, more often it makes sense to rename the page to contain more context, e.g. rename it to include the date.
    1.13 +
    1.14 +You can rename, move and delete topics directly from your browser. Moving lets you transfer a topic from one web to another. The soft delete moves a topic to the special ==Trash== web, where it's hidden but can be "undeleted" with system administrator access. 
    1.15 +
    1.16 +Click ==[More]== on the control bar at the bottom of the page you want to change, then choose ==[Rename/move]==, and make your changes to that screen. There's a link that launches to the ManagingTopics reference page in a pop-up window.

    1.18 +__NOTE:__ The configuration of your site and your own access permissions determine whether you can access these functions.
    1.19 +
    1.20 +Note for site administrators: To remove a topic permanently move it to the Trash web, then with file-level access, delete the =.txt= and =.txt,v= files manually from =/twiki/data/Trash=.
