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:

  • From a remote talk page: This is a redirect from a talk page in any namespace to a corresponding page that is more heavily watched, and therefore, more likely to be answered or acted on.

#REDIRECT [[(target discussion page)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from remote page}}
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 discussion page)]]

{{R from remote page}}
This accords with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any page where discussion would otherwise occur except because of its remote location; having few (if any) editors watching the page it is redirected to a page more heavily watched so as to increase the likelihood of the discussion being seen and acted upon.
  • By default, this template categorizes a redirect as unprintworthy.
