Usage[change source]

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Rcat shell|
{{R from former name}}
}}
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 article title)]]

{{R from former name}}
This is in accord with the instructions found at Wikipedia:REDCAT.
  • Use this rcat on a redirect from a former name or former working title of the target article.
  • This redirect is not used on redirects from predecessor company names, which are reserved for mergers and acquisitions that result in a different company name. For these redirects use {{R from predecessor company name}} instead.

Printworthiness[change source]

  • In main-article namespace, many redirects from former names to current titles are unprintworthy; however, there are others that are printworthy, 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:
