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 historic name}}
This is in accord with the instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect page that is considered a "historic" name for the target article. Do not use this template on redirects that are non-historic former names or just former working titles of the target article. If the name is an older title but not considered historic, then use {{R from former name}} instead.
CalcuttaRedirect arrow without text.svgKolkata – the historic name for the capital of West Bengal in India was "Calcutta".
ImmaterialismRedirect arrow without text.svgSubjective idealism – the historic name George Berkeley gave his metaphysical doctrine was "immaterialism".
  • To tag a redirect that targets a page that is titled with a historic name, use {{R to historic name}} instead.
