Moving a page causes the page title to change while the page id remains the same. If a redirect is created under the moved page's former page title, it will have a new page id. Pages can be moved using Special:MovePage (SpecialMovepage.php) or action=move (ApiMove.php).

Moving a page, and then moving it again, can create double redirects.

DatabaseEdit

There are two possible kinds of page move log actions: move and move_redir. The latter refers to a move over a redirect.

APIEdit

A page move log event has a "move" sub-element, e.g. <move new_ns="0" new_title="Foo" suppressredirect="" />
