Template:R from phrase

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 a phrase: This is a redirect from a phrase to a more general relevant article covering the topic.
    • Phrases should only have an individual article when there is enough (usually historical background) material to warrant a detailed article on the genesis and sociological impact of the phrase in question.
    • If the phrase is a catchphrase, use {{R from catchphrase}}; if it is a slogan, then use {{R from slogan}}; if it is a quotation, then use {{R from quotation}}.

Usage[edit]

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

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

Printworthiness[edit]

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from phrases to more general coverage are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are thought to be unprintworthy, 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 phrase}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

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