CategoryRenameAuto-Update can be used to "rename" categories by moving the category's page to a new name and auto-migrating all pages within that category to the new one, updating every instance of that category's link across the entire wiki. The script adds a 'Rename' button to the 'Edit' drop-down on any category page, which will redirect to the category-renaming form. It is strongly recommended to have a bot flag when using this script, as it can spam the Wiki Activity. This script works best when used as a Gadget, but can still be used in personal or wiki-wide JS regardless.
