Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

}}
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 more specific geographic name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect from a more specific geographic location that includes extraneous identifiers such as the "county" or the "region" of a city. These redirects are mainly used to conform with Wikipedia conventions on naming geographic location articles.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from more specific locations that include helpful identifiers are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, 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:
