Help:Page name

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

Page names on Wikimedia Commons give an indication as to what is contained on the page. A page may be part of the actual content (such as a gallery, category or multimedia file) or for the administration and maintenance of Commons.

Some pages have a prefix to indicate which Commons namespace the page belongs to. Gallery pages do not have a prefix but others may begin with "File", "Category" etc. The namespace forms part of the en:URL as well as being shown at the top of the page. The "page name" of this page is Page name; to reach it you need to specify the "full page name" including the namespace, i.e. Help:Page name.

Commons pages which are not galleries are prefixed with a "namespace" identifier. For galleries, the "basename" is the full page name.
