  • This redirect category (Rcat) template populates Category:Redirects from template shortcuts and, when the shortcut is in the Main (article) namespace, the Unprintworthy redirects category. At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make a printed version of the full Wikipedia encyclopedia, and template shortcut redirects from the Main namespace are not suitable for a printed version. In other words they are "unprintworthy".
  • Add this Rcat to a redirect in the following manner:
#REDIRECT [[(Target page name)]] {{R from template shortcut}}
This is in accord with instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Template {{This is a redirect}} may also be used to add this and other appropriate Rcats to a redirect.
  • Use this Rcat on any redirect that is a shortcut to a template, which usually has a longer pagename. The redirect itself does not necessarily have to be a template, e.g., [[T:S]], which is a template shortcut that is actually in the Main (article) namespace. Such shortcuts are called pseudo-namespace redirects.
  • It is important to note that it is the target that determines the difference between a template shortcut and any other shortcut. If the redirect is on a template page, and the target is not a template, then the redirect is not a "template shortcut". Similarly, template shortcuts should never contain the Rcat {{R from shortcut}}, as this is meant only for shortcuts that are not to templates.
