From QuIRC
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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 phrase: This is a redirect from a phrase to a more general relevant article covering the topic.
    • Phrases should only have an individual article when there is enough (usually historical background) material to warrant a detailed article on the genesis and sociological impact of the phrase in question.
    • If the phrase is a catchphrase, use {{R from catchphrase}}; if it is a slogan, then use {{R from slogan}}; if it is a quotation, then use {{R from quotation}}.

Usage

This redirect category (rcat) template adds the page it tags to Category:Redirects from phrases. Add this rcat template to a redirect page by using the following wikicode:

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from phrase}}
}}

Template {{Rcat shell}} (an alias for the {{Redirect category shell}} template) 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 phrase}}

This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:Categorizing redirects (WP:REDCAT).

When to use this template

Use this template to tag any redirect—in any namespace—from a phrase without a dedicated page to a page that covers a topic containing material that in part covers the phrase, but covers other things as well. Phrases should only have an individual article when there is enough material (usually historical background) to warrant a detailed article on the genesis and sociological impact of the phrase.

Printworthiness

In main-article namespace, many redirects from phrases to more general coverage are considered printworthy; however, there are many others that are thought to be unprintworthy, so there is no default sort for printworthiness. 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. 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:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} will accept these rcats just like any other, as in the following examples:

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from phrase}}
{{R printworthy}}
}}

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from phrase}}
{{R unprintworthy}}
}}

Either {{Redirect category shell}} or its alias/shortcut, {{Rcat shell}}, may be used.
