This redirect category (rcat) template sorts redirects into one of two categories:

  1. Category:Redirects to portal space – for PNRs and CNRs, or
  2. Category:Redirects to portals – for portal redirects to other portal pages

This rcat also populates the following:


Apply this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[Portal:(target page name)]]

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to portal namespace}}
{{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 [[Portal:(target page name)]]

{{R to portal namespace}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace (including the portal namespace) that targets a page in the portal namespace. This rcat will automatically sort redirects as either inside or outside the portal namespace.
