Hi again, I tried making this a page action as follows (in  
* %item rel=nofollow% {(wikish source  
{$SiteGroup}.PageActions#RenamePage)}Rename Page:(:input text  
name=NewPage value={$FullName} size=30:)(:input submit name=submit  
value=Rename:)(:input end:)

(:if false:)
wikish_form quickform process
if test -n "${submit}"
   if test "${NewPage}" ~= "/^[a-z0-9-]+(\.|\/)[a-z0-9-]+$/i"
     if test {$Name}!={$Group}
       set -s NewPagePN = `echo ${NewPage} | sed 's|\s||gi' | sed 's|/| 
       sed -i 's%({$Group}|{$Groupspaced})(/|\.)({$Name}|{$NameSpaced}) 
%${NewPage}%g' `pagelist link={$FullName} sep=\n`
       mv {$FullName} ${NewPagePN}
       wikish_form redirect target=${NewPagePN}

But with this setup the rename button is disabled. Could anyone tell  
me what part of this I need to fix? Perhaps I am going about this wrong.
