Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from other capitalisation}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any mainspace redirect from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to the title in accordance with the Wikipedia naming conventions for capitalisation, and can help writing, searching, and international language issues.
  • If this rcat is placed on any redirect in a namespace other than mainspace, it will not appear on the redirect, and it will not place the redirect in the Redirects from other capitalisations category. Instead, the redirect will be placed in Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace and will require repair. When a redirect is not in mainspace, then use {{R from modification}}, instead.
  • Other variants should use one of the other rcats such as {{R from alternative spelling}} or {{R from alternative name}}.
  • Template {{This is a redirect}} may also be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect.


  • |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 or |reason=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 [[Northern blue jay]]}}
