Changing Internal Links

using System;
using DotNetWikiBot;
class MyBot : Bot 
{ 
	public static void Main() 
	{ 
		Site site = new Site("http://tolkiengateway.net", "Mithbot", "PASSWORD"); 

		PageList p = new PageList(site);
 		p.FillFromLinksToPage("Bilbo");
		p.LoadEx();
		foreach (Page i in p)
			i.text = i.text.Replace("[[Bilbo]]", "[[Bilbo Baggins]]");
		p.SaveSmoothly(1, "Bot Message: changing link to [[Bilbo Baggins]]", true);
	} 

}

		p.RemoveNamespaces(new int[] {2,10});
