'Bold text'

Changes made to this navbar must also be made to the functional index, and vice versa.

Purpose[edit]

This template navbox furnishes editors with a practical tool to quickly find the redirect category templates (rcats) that are used most often. This index template organises the templates by function. The procedure to use for placing these rcats on redirects will be found on each rcat's individual documentation page and at WP:REDCAT.

For an expanded index with examples and complete alphanumerical listing of redirect category templates, see Wikipedia:Template messages/Redirect pages. The links in the navbox go to sections on that page.

As usual, please refrain from using aliases (redirects) in this navbar. In any navbar, redirects are not your friends. If the non-redirect subject page is linked, then it will appear not as a link, but as a bold, easy to find entry when the navbar is placed on that entry's page. Redirects in navbars will not appear in bold text on the entries' pages.

Usage[edit]

Either {{R template index}} or its shortcut, {{Rcats}}, may be used. Add this navbox to the bottom of a template documentation page (above the categories) in the following manner:

{{R template index}}

Additions made to the functional index must also be added to this navbar, and vice versa.

How to manage this template's initial visibility
To manage this template's visibility when it first appears, add the parameter:

|state=collapsed to show the template in its collapsed state, i.e. hidden apart from its titlebar – e.g. {{R template index |state=collapsed}}
|state=expanded to show the template in its expanded state, i.e. fully visible – e.g. {{R template index |state=expanded}}
|state=autocollapse to show the template in its collapsed state but only if there is another template of the same type on the page – e.g. {{R template index |state=autocollapse}}

Unless set otherwise (see the |state= parameter in the template's code), the template's default state is collapsed.
