Template:R from related word

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  (Redirected from Template:R to related)
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:

  • From a related word or phrase: This is a redirect from a word (or phrase) to a page title that is related in some way. This redirect might be a good candidate for a Wiktionary link.
    • Redirects from related words are not properly redirects from alternative spellings of the same word. They are also different from redirects that are subtopics or related terms/topics, because unlike those, a related word or phrase probably does not warrant its own subtopic section in the target page or possess the possibility of ever becoming an article, template, project page, and so forth.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from related word}}
}}
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 from related word}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace to a target page title that is a related word or phrase. Related words might be good candidates for Wiktionary links. They are different from related topics in that a topic may someday have its own article, while a related word or phrase likely will not.

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from related words are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. 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:
