Template:R from move

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
This rcat template is automatically added to all new redirects that result from page moves; it must be added manually to older redirects when appropriate.

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 page move: This is a redirect from a page that has been moved (renamed). This page was kept as a redirect to avoid breaking links, both internal and external, that may have been made to the old page name.

Usage

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from move}}
}}
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 page name)]]

{{R from move}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace that has been left behind as the result of a page move (rename). This tagging has become automated; however, there are still many older redirects from moves that need to be manually tagged by this rcat.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from moved pages are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are printworthy, 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 move}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

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