Summary

  • This template is for creating soft redirects, that is to say, short pages inviting readers to visit another page on a different Wikimedia project. This cannot be performed with a classical redirect due to technical restrictions.
  • This template is also used to redirect an entry to a special page, in which case hard redirects have been disabled.
  • For redirecting categories, use {{Category redirect}} instead.
  • For all other redirects within the English Wikipedia, please continue to use #REDIRECT [[Other article]].

This places tagged pages in Category:Wikipedia soft redirects or Category:User soft redirects.
