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

  1. Category:Redirects to talk pages – for cross-namespace redirects, and
  2. Category:Unprintworthy redirects – only redirects from the main-article namespace (mainspace)
  • At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. 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 not for use on redirects that are in any talk namespace. If placed on a talk-page redirect, it will not populate the expected categories; it will instead be sorted to Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace.


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

{{R to talk page}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Template {{This is a redirect}} may also be used to add this and up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect.
  • Use this rcat on all redirects from a page outside of the talk namespaces to any page in any of the talk namespaces. This rcat should never be used on a redirect that is in any talk namespace that targets any other page. Examples of talk pages are:


  • Also known as... – list of templates that redirect here and may also be used
