Template:R from shortcut

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • This is a redirect from a shortcut in any namespace to a page in any namespace except template namespace.
    • If target page is a template, then use Template:R from template shortcut instead. Shortcuts are wikilinked on community pages, talk pages and edit summaries, but not in mainspace articles.
    • Note: Template talk pages are in a talk namespace; they are not in the template namespace. All shortcuts to talk pages should be tagged with {{R from shortcut}}.

Usage

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from shortcut}}
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.
  • Use this rcat on any redirect from a Wikipedia (WP:, MOS:, etc.) shortcut. Shortcuts are historically reserved for Wikipedia project pages, their discussion and help pages, and categories, and they are now used in all namespaces. If the redirect is a shortcut to the template namespace and the redirect itself is in any namespace, then use {{R from template shortcut}} instead of {{R from shortcut}}. It is the target page that determines this, so if a redirect is in the template namespace and targets a page in any other namespace, then it is not a template shortcut and should be tagged with this rcat, {{R from shortcut}}.
