One option:

for i in BBaCommunity.*
   mv ${i} ${i#BBa}
   echo "(:redirect ${i##BBa}:)" >${i}

That will leave a (:redirect Community.PageA:) as the only source in

Another option is the WikiSh script I have in
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/WikiShExamples#RenamePage to rename
pages, but it is unnecessarily complicated in its current state (it can
probably be cut down to 30% of it's current length).  If you're likely to
use it let me know off-list and I'll re-code it using the new session
capabilities in WikiSh and put it back up there...

There's also http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RenamePage which has
capability of listing all links in a sidelink or something so you can go in
and manually fix them.  I haven't used it, but it is definitely more
"pmwiki" in its approach.
