A redirect is a page that has the sole purpose to lead to another page, to take the reader where he really wanted to go. Redirects allow a topic to have more than one title. Redirects are used for synonyms, abbreviations, accented terms, misspellings, typos, nicknames, scientific names, etc. To create a redirect for a page named "Foo", type Foo in the search box, press Enter, and click on the redlink for Foo that it presents. To create the redirect, in the edit window that appears, type #REDIRECT [[Oof]] to make it lead to the article Oof.
