Template:R from film

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 film: This is a redirect from a film title that is a subtopic of the redirect target or a title in an alternative language that has been produced in that language.

Usage[edit]

  • This redirect category (rcat) template populates Category:Redirects from films. This rcat also formats the title of the film in italics on the redirect page. See below for those rare instances when this function 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 film}}
}}
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 film}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any mainspace redirect from a film title that is a subtopic of its target or a title in an alternative language that has been produced in that language.
  • Occasionally, a film title might require the use of {{DISPLAYTITLE}} or {{Italic title}} with its |string= parameter to format the title of the redirect. In those cases the default italic title will interfere with that format and must be subdued. When this rcat tags a redirect from within the Rcat shell template, this is done in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from film|1=noitalic}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from film|noitalic}}
}}
and if used individually:
{{R from film|noitalic}}
That will subdue the default italic title so no title-display conflict will result.

Printworthiness[edit]

  • In main-article namespace, many film redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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 film}}
{{R printworthy}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from film}}

Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
