Merging a wiki into another wiki, i.e. copying all the content from a source wiki into a target wiki (e.g. if you decide that you really only need one wiki rather than two separate wikis), can be done by manual or automatic means.

Methods[edit]

Either way, you're going to follow these steps:

Manual[edit]

  • Download every file individually from your source wiki.
  • Upload each of these files individually to your target wiki with a suitable description.

Automatic[edit]

  • Write a bot to download all the files and their descriptions from the source wiki, saving the descriptions to a text file.
  • Use Manual:ImportImages.php to import files with their descriptions.

You're done!
