Usage[edit]

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from proper noun}}
}}
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 proper noun}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag a mainspace redirect from a proper noun that targets a page that may or may not have the redirected proper noun in its title. This is especially useful when the part of speech is important to note, for example as with a search-term redirect.
  • If a proper-noun redirect is not in mainspace, then please do not tag it with this rcat.

Printworthiness[edit]

  • In main-article namespace, many proper-noun redirects are considered unprintworthy search terms; however, there may be others that are thought to be printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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:

Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
