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 list entry: This is a redirect to a list in which the subject is an entry.
    • For redirects from a topic to a related list and not to an entry on that list, use {{R from list topic}} instead.

Usage

Use this rcat template on mainspace redirects only.
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)#(target list entry section/anchor)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to list entry}}
}}
Either {{R to section}} or {{R to anchor}} should also be used.
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)#(target list entry section/anchor)]]

{{R to list entry}}
Again, either {{R to section}} or {{R to anchor}} should also be used.
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on any mainspace redirect to a list in which the subject is an entry.
  • Use if there is no separate article on the subject, and the subject is included in a list, either:
    • in an article entitled "List of …", or
    • a section of an article either:
      • titled a list; or
      • containing entries that are not themselves sections. Also, use {{R to anchor}} where appropriate.
  • For a redirect to an article section about the subject use the {{R to section}} rcat instead.
  • For a redirect from a topic to a related list and not to an entry on that list, use {{R from list topic}} instead. For example: Birds of TunisiaRedirect arrow without text.svgList of birds of Tunisia.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many list-entry redirects are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that might become articles and are printworthy, so there is 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, 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:

Examples:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R to list entry}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to list entry}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
