Template:R from CamelCase

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} may be used to add one or more rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • From a camel case title: This is a redirect from a camel case page name. In the initial versions of Wikipedia, all links had to be "CamelCase", i.e., words that used medial capitals; they are "two-humped" like a Bactrian camel. These are kept as redirects to maintain edit history and to avoid breaking links that may have been made externally.

Purpose

This template is a more specific choice to {{R from alternative capitalization}}, and it is used for redirects from "CamelCase" to more conventional spelling. In the initial versions of Wikipedia, all links had to be CamelCase. When that changed, these redirects were left behind and are a historic part of this encyclopedia.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from CamelCase}}
}}
and when the redirect is in article mainspace, printworthiness should also be tagged:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from CamelCase}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the Redirect category shell template, which may be used to add as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from CamelCase}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any redirect from a CamelCase title. An example is AtlasShruggedRedirect arrow without text.svgAtlas Shrugged. These redirects are kept to maintain edit history and to avoid breaking links that have been made to the redirect, both internally and from external websites. See WP:LINKROT.
