button for each deleted text, and you can proceed with the purging.

Changing urls is a poor practice. Anyway, if you know what you’re
doing, you can delete an existing text and point to another adding a

Please note: without any prefix nor protocol, just the bare page name.
So if the full URL of the new text is
http://amusewiki.org/library/new-example-uri, you have just to put
new-example-uri in the header (as per the example above).
