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 gender: This is a redirect from a word or phrase that specifies gender to one that is either gender-neutral or specific to a different gender.

Usage[edit]

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from gender}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
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 gender}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on all mainspace redirects from a word or phrase that specifies a gender, to one that is either gender-neutral, or specific to another gender.
  • Most of these redirects are considered printworthy, so this rcat also populates Category:Printworthy redirects by default. There are some types that are not considered printworthy, such as standard plurals like Ballerinos. When you add this rcat to a redirect that you decide is unprintworthy, then use the first parameter to subdue the Printworthy redirects category in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from gender|1=unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from gender|unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
and if used individually:
{{R from gender|unprintworthy}}
That subdues the Printworthy redirects category and populates Category:Unprintworthy redirects.
