Purpose[edit]

This redirect category (rcat) template sorts redirects into one category:

Usage[edit]

  • Apply this rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to main namespace}}
}}
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 [[(target article title)]]

{{R to main namespace}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on all redirects from outside the main namespace to an article title in mainspace. This rcat should never be used to tag any redirect that is in mainspace.

Aliases[edit]

Printworthiness[edit]

For information only:

  • This rcat will only be used to categorize redirects outside mainspace, so printworthiness will not apply to any redirects tagged by this rcat. All redirects that are inside mainspace are either printworthy or unprintworthy. In 2003, efforts were begun to support the Wikimedia Foundation's goal of increasing access and availability of Wikipedia articles in printed versions. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Other rcats do not, and that means it is up to editors to choose which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The rcats that are used separately to populate those categories are:

Examples:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from surname}}
{{R from alternative name}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from surname}}
{{R from alternative name}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}
Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
