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

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

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from an ambiguous page name to a page or list that disambiguates it. These redirects are pointed to by links that should always be disambiguated. Therefore, this template should never appear on a page that has "(disambiguation)" in its title. Use {{R to disambiguation page}} instead. For more information follow the bold category link.

Usage

Use this rcat template in any namespace.
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Redr|from ambiguous page}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, 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 page name)]]

{{R from ambiguous page}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any redirect from an ambiguous term to a disambiguation page. These redirects are pointed to by links that should always be disambiguated. Therefore, this template should never appear on any page that has "(disambiguation)" in its title. For those redirects use {{R to disambiguation page}} instead.
  • By default, this template tags redirects as unprintworthy. To tag and categorize a redirect as printworthy, use the bar key ( ¦ ) on your keyboard to type the addition ¦printworthy in the following manner:
{{R from ambiguous page|printworthy}}
Note: The bar key ( ¦ ) on the keyboard renders as a pipe ( | ) on the screen.
That will subdue the default unprintworthy category and populate Category:Printworthy redirects.
