Usage[edit]

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from American English}}
}}
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 page name)]]

{{R from American English}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace from a title with a different correct spelling of the target.
    • Do not use this rcat to tag a redirect from an incorrectly spelled title – misspelled redirects should be tagged with {{R from misspelling}} instead – such "typo" redirects are frequently good search terms.
  • Pages that link to these redirects may be updated to link directly to the target pages if that results in an improvement of the text. Do not "fix" such links if they are not broken. In addition, these links should not be replaced with piped links.

Parameters[edit]

  • The first unnamed parameter, |1=: may be used to alter the text when the non-American spelling is of a name that is different from the target's title. It is used as follows:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from American English|1=(other spelling)}}
}}
or the 1= may be omitted:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from American English|(other spelling)}}
}}
The text will be changed from The prevalent spelling is given by the target of the redirect to The prevalent spelling is (other spelling).
  • The second unnamed parameter, |2=: by default, this template tags and categorizes redirects as unprintworthy. Use the second parameter to subdue this behavior and populate Category:Printworthy redirects in the following manner:
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from American English|2=printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
or
{{Rcat shell|
{{R from American English||printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}
(leave first parameter "empty") or
{{R from American English||printworthy}}
{{R printworthy}}
