When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add up to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a wikilink created from Exif, XMP or other information (i.e. the "metadata" section on some file description pages) to a more detailed description of the metadata subject that is linked. Since MediaWiki offers only limited control over the targets of these camera-generated links, redirects like this are created to make them useful. For more information follow the category link.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template is used for redirects of wikilinks created from Exchangeable image file format (Exif), Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) or other information (i.e. the "metadata" section on some image description pages). Since MediaWiki may only offer limited control over the link targets of these autogenerated wikilinks, redirects are created to make the links useful. Redirects from file metadata information links often target sections and anchors of articles and tables within articles.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title[#section or #anchor where applicable])]]

{{Redr|from file metadata link}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title[#section or #anchor where applicable])]]

{{R from file metadata link}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
