Misspelled redirects[edit]

Common misspellings can be considered useful redirects, and are among the most common uses of this template.


  • Also known as... – list of templates that redirect here and may also be used
Misspelled titles may be good search terms:


  • |printworthy – By default, this template tags and categorizes redirects as unprintworthy. Use this parameter to subdue this behavior and populate Category:Printworthy redirects:
{{R from other capitalisation|printworthy}}
  • |of=text, |reason=text or |2=text, – changes "...from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to..." to "...from a title with another method of capitalisation of text." This is useful when the term redirected from is an alternative capitalisation of a different name for or subtopic of the article title rather than of the title itself. For example, the redirect Northern Blue Jay:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]
{{R from subtopic}}
{{R to subsection}}
{{R from other capitalisation|of=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}}}
When template {{This is a redirect}} (Redr) is used:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]

{{Redr|from subtopic|to subsection|from other capitalisation|n3=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}|unprintworthy}}
