 +====== Deleting a Wiki Page ======
 +
 +Existing wiki pages can be completely deleted using the //Delete Page// or the //Delete this Version// buttons at the bottom of the wiki page. These buttons are only visible for users with `WIKI_DELETE` permissions.
 +
 +**Note:** Deleting a wiki page is an irreversible operation.
 +
 +In general, it is recommended to create redirection pages instead of completely deleting an old page, as to not frustrate the visitor with broken links when coming to the site from a search engine. A redirection page is a short page that  contains a link such as  “See SomeOtherPage”. However, deleting specific versions or even complete pages can make sense to remove spam or other abusive submissions.
