Template:R from other capitalisation

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 other capitalisation: This is a redirect from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to the title in accordance with the Wikipedia naming conventions for capitalisation, or it leads to a title that is associated in some way with the conventional capitalisation of this redirect title. This may help writing, searching and international language issues.
    • If this redirect is an incorrect capitalisation, then {{R from miscapitalisation}} should be used instead, and pages that use this link should be updated to link directly to the target. Miscapitalisations can be tagged in any namespace.
    • Use this rcat to tag only mainspace redirects; when other capitalisations are in other namespaces, use {{R from modification}} instead.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from other capitalisation}}
{{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 other capitalisation}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.

Parameters

  • |1=printworthy – By default, this template tags and categorizes redirects as unprintworthy. Use the first parameter to subdue this behavior and populate Category:Printworthy redirects in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from other capitalisation|printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
or
{{R from other capitalisation|printworthy}}
  • |2=text, |of=text or |reason=text, use of any of these will change:
"...from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to..."
to:
"...from a title with another method of capitalisation of text."
This is useful when the term redirected from is an alternative capitalisation of a different name for or subtopic of the article title rather than of the title itself. For example, the redirect Northern Blue Jay:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from subtopic}}
{{R to section}}
{{R from other capitalisation|of=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
or if applied individually:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]

{{R from subtopic}}
{{R to subsection}}
{{R from other capitalisation|of=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}}}
{{R unprintworthy}}

Aliases

  • For redirects from historically-based "CamelCase" titles, please use the separate template:
  • If a redirect is from an excessively capitalized title that violates WP:NCCAPS and MOS:CAPS, please use the template:
