This template index page furnishes editors with a practical tool to quickly find the redirect category templates (Rcats) that are used most often. This index template organises the templates by function and, in some cases, provides examples of where and when to use them. For a complete alphabetical list of redirect category templates, see Wikipedia:Template messages/Redirect pages. The procedure to use for placing these Rcats on redirects will be found at WP:REDCAT.

At some point in the future, Jimmy Wales wants to make a printed version of the full Wikipedia encyclopedia. Some Rcats place a redirect in either Category:Printworthy redirects or Category:Unprintworthy redirects by default. Other Rcats do not, which means that it is up to editors to choose to the best of their knowledge which of those categories, Printworthy or Unprintworthy, is appropriate and should be populated. The Rcats that can be used separately to populate those categories are:

  • {{This is a redirect}} can be used to group redirect category templates. This is useful with one exception: When you place an Rcat on a redirect that gives you the choice to change from one category to another, then you will not be able to use the {{This is a redirect}} template. The Rcat {{R from plural}} is a good example of this. {{R from plural}} is used to redirect from a plural title to a singular one. Most of these redirects are "unprintworthy", so {{R from plural}} automatically places those redirects in Category:Unprintworthy redirects. To identify a redirect from a plural title as printworthy in combination with {{This is a redirect}}, use {{R from printworthy plural}} as the redirect template name.
  • For Talk pages, there are only certain redirect category templates you should use. The only Rcats that apply to Talk pages are {{R to talk}}, {{R from shortcut}}, those associated with moves, merges and cross-namespace redirects. For more information, click on the templates.
