When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add from one to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a title that is a shortened form of a person's full name, a book title or other more complete article title.
    • Use this rcat (not {{R from initialism}}) to tag redirects that are the initials of a person's name. For more information follow the bold category link.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Redr|from short name}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from short name}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect title that is a shortened form of a full article title or a shorter form of a person's full name. Also use for incomplete names and titles, such as "East End".
  • If appropriate, for example the redirect is a person's name, be sure to follow Wikipedia:Sort key and use {{DEFAULTSORT}} to sort by the "surname" in the categories.
  • For abbreviations and initialisms, such as "UN", use {{R from initialism}} instead (unless the initials redirect to a person's name – then use this template, R from short name).

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many shorter-named redirects to longer-named titles are considered unprintworthy; however, there are many others that are thought to be printworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make more printed versions of Wikipedia encyclopedia articles. Some rcats automatically populate either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Others, like this rcat, 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:
