Encyclopedia from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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:

Template documentation

Usage

  • Add this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[Template:(target page name)]]

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

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from template shortcut}}
{{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 from template shortcut}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect that is a shortcut to a template, which usually has a longer pagename. The redirect itself does not necessarily have to be a template.
  • It is important to note that it is the target that determines the difference between a template shortcut and any other shortcut. If the shortcut redirect is in any namespace and the target is a template, then the redirect is a "template shortcut". Shortcut redirects that target template pages should always be tagged with {{R from template shortcut}} and should never be tagged with {{R from shortcut}}, which is meant only for shortcuts that do not target templates.
  • Important also is the fact that template talk pages are in the talk namespace and are not in template space; if the shortcut redirect targets a talk page of any subject namespace, then use {{R from shortcut}} instead.
