When you click on the rename page do you see the new, correct category name in red?

That needs to be set up. So, copy the information from the old category and add it to the edit box of the NEW category, and make any adjustments you need to make.

So, you would add:

[[Category:Zacatecas]], assuming that is correct.

Once that is done, the bot information can be deleted from the rename category, and manual can be deleted so this is left:

{{Rename Category|Jerez de Garcia Salinas}}

Then save that page and the rename will happen.

hmm ok, too bad bot can't do it automatically
It does do it automatically IF the new category has been set up in advance.
I'm working on the rest of those right now.
thanks natalie!
