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 Unicode character: This is a redirect from a single Unicode character to an article or Wikipedia project page that infers meaning for the symbol. Examples would be monetary symbols like dollar and euro signs, language symbols, daggers, and so on. For a multiple-character-long title with diacritics, use template {{R from diacritics}} instead.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace and project (WP:) namespace redirects only.
If this rcat is added to a redirect that is in any namespace other than mainspace or project space, an error box will appear on the redirect, and the redirect will be sorted to Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace.
#REDIRECT [[(target article title or page name)]]

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from Unicode}}
{{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 article title or page name)]]

{{R from Unicode}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any mainspace or project space redirect from a single Unicode character (not including the namespace) to a mainspace article or Wikipedia project page that describes the usage of this symbol. Examples would be monetary symbols like dollar and euro signs, language symbols, daggers, and so on. For a multiple-character-long title with diacritics, use {{R from diacritics}} instead.
