Jump to: navigation, search

When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add up to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a shortcut in any namespace to a page in any namespace except template namespace. For more information follow the category link.
    • If target page is a template, then use {{R from template shortcut}} instead. Shortcuts are wikilinked on community pages, talk pages and edit summaries, but not in mainspace articles.
    • Note: Template talk pages are in a talk namespace; they are not in the template namespace. All shortcuts to talk pages should be tagged with {{R from shortcut}}.

Usage

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

{{Redr|from shortcut}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from shortcut}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect from a Wikipedia (WP:, MOS:, etc.) shortcut. Shortcuts are historically reserved for Wikipedia project pages, their discussion and help pages, and categories, and they are now used in all namespaces. If the redirect is a shortcut to the template namespace and the redirect itself is in any namespace, then use {{R from template shortcut}} instead of {{R from shortcut}}. It is the target page that determines this, so if a redirect is in the template namespace and targets a page in any other namespace, then it is not a template shortcut and should be tagged with {{R from shortcut}}.
