  • |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:
{{Redr|from other capitalisation|p1=printworthy}}
{{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..."
"...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]]

{{Redr|from subtopic|to subsection|from other capitalisation|n3=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}|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}}}}
