From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
  • This is a redirect to a disambiguation page. This redirect is intended for use in links from other articles that need to refer to the disambiguation page, rather than be disambiguated. Therefore, this template should only appear on a redirect page that has "(disambiguation)" in its title. For more information, see the category link.

Usage

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
  • Use this redirect category (rcat) template on all redirects to disambiguation (dab) pages if and only if the redirect on which this rcat is placed has "(disambiguation)" in its title.
Example: See the dab page Antenna, which does not have "(disambiguation)" in its title. Click on this Antenna (disambiguation) link and you will be redirected to the same page ("Antenna"). Just below the page title, you will see "(Redirected from Antenna (disambiguation))". Click on that link to see the redirect. That redirect page is the only kind of page where this rcat should be used.
  • Place this rcat on a redirect page in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Redr|to disambiguation page}}
  • Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat can also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R to disambiguation page}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
