1. create the page under one of the names
2. then use the "move" tab to rename it.
3. Moving will cause the 2nd name to become the same name, and the first
name will redirect to it.
4. (I assume this just puts in a #REDIRECT command
I believe that wiki's search can be configured to show both the "main" &
"secondary" names, or only the main ones. (But I'm not sure).
Also, more than one level of redirect does not work. E.g.,
1. you create an article titled "SX-445-D"
2. you move (rename) it to "wildcat"
3. you then move (rename) "wildcat" to "puma"
then going to "SX-445-D" will no longer automatically redirect you to
"puma". You'll have to edit "SX-445-D" & change its redirect from "wildcat"
to "puma" (I hope this was clear)
