Template:R from move

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • This is a redirect from a page that has been moved (renamed). This page was kept as a redirect to avoid breaking links, both internal and external, that may have been made to the old page name. For more information follow the category link.
    • This rcat template is automatically added to all new redirects that result from page moves; it must be added manually to older redirects when appropriate.

Usage

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template is used to automatically (and manually) categorize redirect pages in any namespace that result when a page has been moved (renamed). This rcat populates Category:Redirects from moves, which is used to track all page moves that, if a redirect is not left behind, would result in the breakage of links, both internal wikilinks and external internet website links.
  • For redirects that have been left behind from page moves and have not yet been categorized, add this rcat in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from move}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Template {{This is a redirect}} may also be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from moved pages are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:
Please click on each one for more details and guidance.
Examples:
{{Redr|from move|printworthy}}
{{Redr|from move|unprintworthy}}
Either {{This is a redirect}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Redr}}, may be used.
