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.

Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)#(target section header)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R to section}}
}}
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)#(target section header)]]

{{R to section}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect in any namespace to the header/subheader of a section of a page in which the subject is mentioned. Technically, a section with a header is a type of "anchor" on a page that may be linked from inside or outside of Wikipedia. The {{R to anchor}} rcat should not be used for section headers. It should only be used for other types of anchors that are embedded in lists, tables or anywhere else, but not section headers. If an anchor redirect targets an entry in a list, then {{R to list entry}} may also be used.

Aliases

Printworthiness

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects to page sections are considered printworthy, perhaps even with the possibility to become a separate article, project page, etc.; however, there are many other such redirects that are 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:

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