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:

Purpose[edit]

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

  1. Category:Redirects to template from non-template namespace – for PNRs and CNRs, 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 template namespace are not suitable for a printed version. In other words they are unprintworthy.

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

Usage[edit]

Use this rcat template in any namespace except template namespace.
  • Apply this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[Template:(target page name)]]

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to template 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 [[Template:(target page name)]]

{{R to template namespace}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect from a page outside of the template namespace that targets a page inside the template namespace.
This rcat should never be used on a redirect page that is in the template namespace.
