Wikipedia:List of shortcuts[edit]

Shortcuts

This is a directory of abbreviated redirects and the pages they lead to (mainly in the Wikipedia namespace). For a list of community related shortcuts such as for WikiProjects andPortals see WP:WPR and WP:PORTCUT, respectively. For a list of shortcuts to Wikipedia talk pages see WT:WT. For technical details seeWP:SHORT.

For other useful directories see the navigation bar above.

How to create a shortcut[edit]

Shortcuts exist as redirects pointing from the title of the shortcut (for example, Wikipedia:START) to its target (in this case, Portal:Contents). Notice that project shortcuts are usually listed with the prefix "WP" and not "Wikipedia"; this is because when "WP" or "Wp" appears before a colon in a page name, Wikipedia automatically expands it to "Wikipedia". Therefore, there is no need to create shortcuts literally starting with "WP:" as opposed to "Wikipedia:". Prefixes similar to "WP" can be found at Wikipedia:Shortcut#List of prefixes.

Shortcut redirects should be tagged with Template:R from shortcut(edit talk links history) so they will auto-categorize in Category:Redirects from shortcut.

Example:   #redirect [[Pagename]] {{R from shortcut}}

  3. Or both: [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style (headings)|Manual of Style]] - Manual of Style
