Is there any guidance on whether this should / should not be substed? Most cases I've seen aren't substed. Since the category is there for now, I guess it doesn't really matter. Though it's usually not rendered and it otherwise doesn't hurt to leave unsubsted. --Interiot 16:28, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

I say it shouldn't, but it seems Betacommand disagrees, so that is pretty much the end of that – Gurch 17:33, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Shortcuts from article-space into project-space[edit]

Are we using this template to mark shortcuts from article-space into project-space, too? I just tagged Speedy delete as such but was wondering if we want to tag them with a specific (new) template. --AmaltheaTalk 16:33, 15 October 2008 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} The template does not exist on commons as its told on the page. Regards, abf /talk to me/ 09:30, 23 November 2008 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks. Rjd0060 (talk) 15:30, 23 November 2008 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Shouldn't Category:Redirects from shortcut be removed from the <noinclude> section? This template is not itself a redirect. OrangeDog (talkedits) 23:47, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

No, it's quite right as it is: Note that the template also has an includeonly block which does, by default, put such a redirect into both Category:Redirects from shortcut and Category:Unprintworthy redirects. The categories in the noinclude block are to categorize the template, which is why some have a category list-as parameter (one has "Shortcut", two have " " to bring them to the top).

Iw and create a doc sub page[edit]

Done. Amalthea 16:16, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Unprintworthy category[edit]

This redirect template automatically places all shortcuts into the Unprintworthy category. Since the Unprintworthy and Printworthy categories are concerned with a future printed version of Wikipedia, and since such a version would only include articles in the Main namespace, there is a need to use the {{Main other}} template to ensure that all the many shortcuts that are not in the Main namespace do not go into the Unprintworthy category. The following modification to this redirect template will still place shortcuts that are in the Main namespace, such as the H:R shortcut, into the Unprintworthy category. However, shortcuts that are not in the Main namespace, such as the WP:+ shortcut, will then not be needlessly placed into the Unprintworthy category.

  • Please change this line:
{{{category|[[Category:Unprintworthy redirects]]}}}
  • to this:
{{Main other|{{{category|[[Category:Unprintworthy redirects]]}}}}}

Please be sure to include the template-closing braces at the very end of the line. This should be a non-controversial mod, because none of the non-Main-namespace redirects belong in either the Printworthy or the Unprintworthy categories. – PIE ( CLIMAX )  08:07, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Agreed and YesY done. Amalthea 23:11, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much, AMALTHEA! – PIE ( CLIMAX )  07:59, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Repeated text[edit]

This template contains repeated text: "Shortcuts are Shortcuts are" should be just "Shortcuts are". DH85868993 (talk) 11:55, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Not done: I don't see that text anywhere... All I see is:

This is a redirect from a shortcut. A shortcut is a specialized type of redirect page that provides an abbreviated wikilink to a project page or one of its sections, usually from the Wikipedia namespace. They are commonly used on community pages and talk pages rather than in articles themselves.
For a list of such redirects, see the category below.
Which is built with the following code:
This is a redirect from a shortcut. A [[Wikipedia:shortcut|shortcut]] is a specialized type of [[Wikipedia:Redirect|redirect page]] that provides an abbreviated [[wikilink]] to a project page or one of its sections, usually from the [[Wikipedia:Project namespace|Wikipedia namespace]]. They are commonly used on community pages and talk pages rather than in articles themselves.

For a list of such redirects, see the category below.
{{{category|[[Category:Redirects from shortcuts]]}}}
{{Main other|{{{category|[[Category:Unprintworthy redirects]]}}}}}
Can you show me where the repeated text is, please? Thanks Technical 13 (talk) 14:48, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
The text had already been changed by another editor in this edit. DH85868993 (talk) 20:42, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
