Template:R to disambiguation page/sandbox

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

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:

  • To a disambiguation page: This is a redirect to a disambiguation page. This redirect is intended for use in links from other articles that need to refer to the disambiguation page, rather than be disambiguated. Therefore, this template should only appear on a redirect page that has "(disambiguation)" in its title. Ambiguous titles that do not have "(disambiguation)" in their page names may use {{R from ambiguous page}}, instead.

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to disambiguation page}}
and when the redirect is in article mainspace, printworthiness should also be tagged:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to disambiguation page}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
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 page name)]]

{{R to disambiguation page}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on all redirects to disambiguation (dab) pages if and only if the redirect on which this rcat is placed has the word "(disambiguation)" in its title. Some dab pages are titled with the name of the primary topic and do not have the word "(disambiguation)" in their page name. For these, there should always be a redirect titled with exactly the same title plus the word "(disambiguation)". An example is the dab page Antenna, which does not have the word "(disambiguation)" in its title. The associated redirect that does is Antenna (disambiguation), and that redirects to the "Antenna" page. If one clicks that "Antenna (disambiguation)" link, then just below the page title, "Antenna", appears the phrase:
(Redirected from Antenna (disambiguation))
Click on that link either here or on the "Antenna" page to see the redirect. That redirect, the one with the word "(disambiguation)" in its title, is the only kind of redirect that should be categorized by this rcat.
