Shortcut

This template should be used on redirect pages to classify redirects under particular redirect categories (rcats), such as, for example, Category:Redirects from other capitalizations.

Usage

{{Redr|rcat}}. For multiple reasons, {{Redr|rcat1|rcat2}} Do not place any templates before the #REDIRECT [[Link]]. Always place the template after the #REDIRECT [[Link]], to prevent breaking the redirect. It is recommended to leave a blank line between the redirect and the template for readability.

Examples

{{Redr|Not all redirects are useful, but some are.}}

produces
This page is a redirect: 
Not all redirects are useful, but some are.

{{Redr|singular}}

produces
This page is a redirect: 
  • From a singular to a plural term.

{{Redr|case}} or {{Redr|capitalization}}

produces
This page is a redirect: 
  • From an alternative capitalization of the target page's title. Usually these redirects are made solely to help with linking, as the first letter of each word is not case sensitive when searching.

{{Redr|achievement|subtopic}} or {{Redr|advancement|subtopic}}

produces
This page is a redirect: 
  • From the name of an advancement or an achievement.
  • To a section of the target page. In most cases, the titles of these redirects are subtopics.

Guide when to use this template

To use this template, place it AFTER the #REDIRECT [[Link]]. Do NOT place the template before the #REDIRECT [[Link]], as this breaks the redirect as a whole. Here is a general guide on what to place (on the first column) and on the second column generally states when to insert the template. Since this is a general guide, there may be exceptions or other circumstances not listed.

Guide
Template When to use
{{Redr|plural}} When the redirect name is plural, and the target page is singular
{{Redr|singular}} When the redirect name is singular, and the target page is plural
{{Redr|case}} When the capitalization of the redirect is different. For example, if the target is Zombified Piglin, Zombified piglin would be a valid redirect and adding {{R}} is useful, but ZoMbIfIeD pIgLiN would not be a valid redirect.
{{Redr|alt}} For alternative names which the style guide allows
{{Redr|move}} When a page’s old name has been moved to a new name, usually, a redirect is left behind to prevent breaking links. Add this template to the redirect.
{{Redr|subtopic}} Usually when a notable redirect targets a specific subsection of a page, mainly because such subtopic does not warrant its own page.
{{Redr|ign|subtopic}} When an in-game name of an block, entity, or item, like Acacia Boat does not warrant its own page, and is a subtopic, place this template to indicate both the “ign” reason and the “subtopic” reason.
{{Redr|historical}} When the redirect is a historical name pointing to the up-to-date target
{{Redr|version}} When the redirect is a short-term version name, usually excluding the edition. For example, 20w51a to Java Edition 20w51a
{{Redr|diacritics}} Because readers should not be expected to type diacritics, add this template to redirects with the same name, but without diacritics.
{{Redr|subtopic|advancement}} For achievement or advancement redirects, state both the subtopic and achievement/advancement reason.
