Example

Making any POST request is a multi-step process:

  2. GET a CSRF token .
  3. Send a POST request, with the CSRF token, to take action on a page.

The sample code below covers the final step in detail.

POST request

Move "CurrentTitle" and its talk page to "Page with new title", without creating a redirect.

Response

{
    "move": {
        "from": "CurrentTitle",
        "to": "Page with new title",
        "reason": "wrong title",
        "talkfrom": "Talk:CurrentTitle",
        "talkto": "Talk:Page with new title"
    }
}

  • v1.17: Deprecated watch, unwatch
  • v1.17: Introduced watchlist

Additional notes

  • Successful use of the noredirect parameter requires the suppressredirect right, which is granted to bots and sysops, not ordinary users.
  • Creating a redirect is the API's default behavior. If you do not have the suppressredirect right, the API will not return an error; it will simply create a redirect.
  • The Move API uses two additional error handling methods when the page move succeeded, but the talk page or subpage move failed:
    • Talk page - The relevant error will be returned in the talkmove-error-code and talkmove-error-info fields.
    • Subpage - The relevant error will be returned as a standard code/info structure under the subpages key.
