This template provides an easy way to link a redirect page without following the redirect.

{{no redirect|page name|label}}

It accepts two unnamed parameters:

  • 1=(required) the name of the page to link.
  • 2=(optional) the text to be displayed. If this is omitted then the input of the first parameter is used.


Instead of having to copy/paste or type:

  • [ ''Stille Nacht'']

an editor can type:

  • ''{{No redirect|Stille Nacht}}''

or an alias can be used, as in:

  • ''{{-r|Stille Nacht}}''

Both of those will take users directly to the same redirect page and display its pagename as a bluelink thus (using the alias): Stille Nacht.

The second parameter (label) may be useful in discussions on talk pages. For example,

  • {{-r|Stille Nacht|this redirect}}

may appear on a talk page in this context: "For reference, see this redirect."

If there is no page with that name given by the first parameter, the template generates a redlink as for any article name:

  • {{-r|Bill Clinton (nickname)}} displays as

Bill Clinton (nickname)
