    Change of name for NewDocs Wiki thread to PopularPages

    Hi,

    Since NewDocs has already been changed to PopularPages, the team were hoping that the Wiki Thread name could be changed to reflect this.

    Is this possible?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply Iowan - that is something I had not thought of - I will discuss it with the team.

    I assume that you may be suggesting a completely new thread with a link to the original? Do I grasp it correctly?

    Regards.

    Well... no.
    I was hoping for a link to the Wiki Thread - so I don't have to search for it.

    You didn't provide a link to the thread in question.

    I've found it here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2110857
    and renamed it for you.

    But, if memory serves, since the last forum upgrade the OP is allowed to change the title of its own thread.

    Thanks very much sisco311

    Sorry for not providing a link Iowan -

    I had a look at the first post but unless I am mistaken, couldn't find access to the Title.

    Kind regards.

    Re: Change of name for NewDocs Wiki thread to PopularPages

    Hi,

    Is there any way for the title Re: Discussion on each of the Wiki Pages to have PopularPages rather than NewDocs ?

    There are many pages with the reference to NewDocs.

    Such as this page - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...110857&page=21

    What would be the alternative - A New Thread with a Link back to the old?

    Cheers

    Edit: If I am not mistaken, the solution is to leave things as they are.
    I suspect all posts for now on will have the PopularPages heading.

    I am sorry to put you to the trouble,

    Regards,
    BlinkinCat.

    Hi BlinkinCat ,
    Is there any way for the title Re: Discussion on each of the Wiki Pages to have PopularPages rather than NewDocs ?
    the only way is to change the title one at a time on every post and there are just to many to do that.

    What would be the alternative - A New Thread with a Link back to the old?
    That may be possible, but please wait for more input from other staff members before creating a new thread.
    Thanks

    Hi Wild Man,

    Yes I eventually figured that out - as you say there are far too many to do that.

    In any case there is no harm done with the historical aspect of NewDocs being on show.

    Thanks for your input Wild Man.
