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:

Purpose

This template is used to tag redirects and populate Category:Printworthy redirects. It may be used within the {{Redirect category shell}}, the {{This is a redirect}} template, individually or within other redirect category (rcat) templates, which allows those rcats to populate the Printworthy redirects category automatically by default.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
  • Use this redirect category (rcat) template to tag main-article namespace (mainspace) redirects that are suitable for use in a printed or CD/DVD encyclopedia. While no full version of Wikipedia has yet been printed, there have been partial CD versions made that have used the Printworthy redirects category to include such redirects.
  • Add this rcat to a redirect (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R printworthy}}
}}
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 printworthy}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Redirects that should have this template include those redirects that represent genuine alternate names (such as Danzig). Do not use this rcat for redirects that are misspellings (such as Gdańk for Gdańsk), and confusing redirects created after page merges and moves also should not be included in print versions and should not use this template. Redirects that should not be used in a print encyclopedia ahould be tagged with {{R unprintworthy}} instead.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are unprintworthy, so other rcats often have 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 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.
  • Template {{Redirect category shell}} will accept these rcats just like any other.
Examples:
{{Rcat shell|
{{(other rcat)}}
{{(other rcat)}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{(other rcat)}}
{{(other rcat)}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
