I often see that users choose the “rename/move” when they just want to change the title of a page; maybe because they want to keep the page name in sync or they are not aware that they can change the title via editing the page.
There are some cases where this can lead to problems; e.g. with the default page naming strategy a “rename” of a Page from “A\B Testing” to “A/B Testing” will cause an error that there is already a page with the given name. Well, there is, but that is the current page, which simply kept its page name as “AB Testing”. With the “Preformatted names” I guess this case can happen at least as often.
My proposal to avoid this problem is to check if the current page is the same as the target page, and in that case just change the title of the page. That avoids some unexpected errors and is simpler that trying to educate users that the title can be changed via “edit” instead of “rename”.
Any opinions on this?
