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 domain name: This is a redirect from a domain name to an article about a website (or the entity to which the official website belongs) that is more often referred to by its short name or company name rather than its domain name.
    • Use this redirect link (without piping) when the link in the context specifically concerns the website. Other pages using this link should be updated to replace the text with the redirect target (again, without piping).

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from domain name}}
{{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)]]

{{R from domain name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this template for redirects that are domain names and that represent the article they target. An example of a domain name of a website that targets its article is www.nytimes.comRedirect arrow without text.svgThe New York Times.
