From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to 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 person(s): This is a redirect from a person or persons to a related article that includes the person(s).
    • It is a topic more specific than currently provided on the target page or section of that page, and so a subject that may be suitable for expansion in accordance with Wikipedia's policy on biographies of notable people. Be sure to include {{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}} for correct category sorting of this person's name.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from person}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}}
Use the DEFAULTSORT magic word to ensure that person redirects are sorted by surname rather than given name.
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 person}}

{{DEFAULTSORT:(surname), (given name)}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any mainspace redirect from a person or persons to a related article that includes the person(s). This applies when that redirect is a topic more specific than currently provided on the target page or section of that page, and so is a subject that may be suitable for expansion in accordance with Wikipedia's policy on biographies of notable people.
  • Most of these redirects are considered printworthy, so this rcat also populates Category:Printworthy redirects by default. There are some redirects from persons that are not considered notable and printworthy, so when you add this rcat to a redirect that you decide is unprintworthy, then use the unnamed parameter to subdue the Printworthy redirects category in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from person|1=unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from person|unprintworthy}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
and when used individually:
{{R from person|unprintworthy}}
That will subdue the Printworthy redirects category and will add the redirect to Category:Unprintworthy redirects.
