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 year}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any mainspace redirect from a formatted year title, such as YYYY AD/CE/BCE or AD YYYY, to its associated article about the year's events.
  • Sort keys have been padded (by default) with leading zeros for correct sorting within the redirect category.
  • This redirect's category is a subcategory of Category:Redirects from unnecessary disambiguation, so its associated rcat, {{R from unnecessary disambiguation}}, should not be used with this rcat.
