Usage

#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from shortcut}}
}}
Template {{Rcat shell}} is an alias for the {{Redirect category shell}} template, which may be used to add to a redirect as many appropriate rcats as needed, usually from one to seven, along with their parameters. For more information see the documentation on its template page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target page name)]]

{{R from shortcut}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat to tag any redirect from a Wikipedia (WP:, MOS:, etc.) shortcut. Shortcuts are historically reserved for Wikipedia project pages, their discussion and help pages, and categories, and they are now used in all namespaces. If the redirect is a shortcut to the template namespace and the redirect itself is in any namespace, then use {{R from template shortcut}} instead of {{R from shortcut}}. It is the target page that determines this, so if a redirect is in the template namespace and targets a page in any other namespace, then it is not a template shortcut and should be tagged with {{R from shortcut}}.
