 Module "name" - Change File Directory Name?

It would be helpful if this FAQ went into the requirements of changing a module name in the full sense of the term. Changing the module directory name.

It would be good for search engines if one could change /module/wiwi/... to /module/documentation/... and soforth.

Any info on this?


 Re: Module "name" - Change File Directory Name?

Changing the module name in the way you ask constitutes a 'cloning' procedure that involves several changes throughout the module and DB structure (if it has one) Many modules are coded so as to reflect a name change throughout all 'visible' occurances on the web page. This is usually sufficient for most users.
