Template:R from Exif

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • This is a redirect from a wikilink created from JPEG Exchangeable image file format (Exif) information (i.e. the "metadata" section on some image description pages) to a more detailed description of the Exif wikilink. Since MediaWiki offers only limited control over the targets of these camera-generated links, redirects like this are created to make them useful. For more information follow the category link.
    • WARNING: It might happen that few or no pages link to this redirect. That is because the Exif links do not appear in those listings. This redirect is most likely not orphaned!

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template is used for redirects of wikilinks created from JPEG Exif information (i.e. the "metadata" section on some image description pages). Since MediaWiki may only offer limited control over the link targets of these autogenerated wikilinks, redirects are created to make the wikilinks useful. Redirects from Exif information often target sections and anchors of articles and tables within articles.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title[#section or #anchor where applicable])]]

{{R from Exif}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
