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:

This redirect category (rcat) template sorts redirects into the following categories:

  1. Category:Redirects to talk pages – for pseudo-namespace and cross-namespace redirects, and
  2. Category:Unprintworthy redirects – only redirects from the main-article namespace (mainspace)
In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. Mainspace redirects that target pages in the talk namespace are not suitable for a printed version. In other words they are unprintworthy.

This rcat is should not be used to tag redirects that are in any talk namespace. If placed on a talk-page redirect, it will not populate the expected category(ies); the redirect will instead be sorted to Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace.


  • Apply this rcat to a redirect page (not a talk-page redirect) in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(full target talk page name)]]

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to talk 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 [[(full target talk page name)]]

{{R to talk page}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
