Try creating the mapping resources unique page, without any text, and see if a reroute happens.

Right, wiki page titles are case-sensitive. So you can have an article for "Street smarts" and a separate article for TV game show "Street Smarts" without having to include a parenthetical.

If you think that will make a difference then I will start there. I am learning Wiki and don't really know it yet. So bear with me.

Assuming I make a new one, how do I remove the one I created now and stop that URL from routing there?

Subpages are 100% case sensitive. Be sure the initial page is Michigan/Test.

From the edit page, when you click on "Press here to return to the Resources section to see your changes ", you are brought to this page https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Michigan#Resources.

Also, did you think about removing this section as there is no Michagan/Resources at the moment?
Code: Select all
See [[{{BasePage2}}/Resources]] for guidance in {{RootPage2}} that may not be universal to all other states and territories.

Then I apologize for my blunder. I will recreate under the correct URL. If someone can instruct or go remove the incorrect one I would appreciate it.

Thanks

I think only sysops can delete pages. I suppose it would be wise to move, like, Michigan/test to Michigan/Delete/Test, Michigan/Resources to Michigan/Delete/Resources, etc., to mark them for deletion. Then, create Michigan/Test and start there.

It should be fine to just start over at Michigan/Test without deleting anything, but that'd make it harder to track down and find the unneeded pages leftover from the first time.

I thought pages that needed deletion get tagged with {{ToDelete}} as per the wiki:https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Template:ToDelete

Place {{ToDelete}} on pages that should not have been added or now need to be deleted and a Wiki administrator can come through and delete the page completely.

Yes, that's a much better idea.
