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 an album: This is a redirect from an album to a related topic such as the recording artist.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • This redirect category (rcat) template populates Category:Redirects from albums. This rcat also formats the title of the album in italics on the redirect page. See below for those rare instances when this function of the rcat must be subdued.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from album}}
}}
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)]]

{{R from album}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat template on any redirect from the title of an album to a related article.
  • Occasionally, an album title might require the use of {{DISPLAYTITLE}} to format the title of the redirect. In those cases the default italic title will interfere with that format and must be subdued. This may be done in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from album|noitalic}}
}}
or if used individually:
{{R from album|noitalic}}
That will subdue this rcat's default italic title so there will be no conflict with any other title formatting. An example is:
iTunes Festival: London 07 – Imogen Heap: An Evening with I Megaphone
(Italics subdued in the R from album rcat so {{DISPLAYTITLE}} will work correctly.)

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many album redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:

Examples:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from album}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from album}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
