Template:R from other capitalisation

From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
Jump to: navigation, search

When used with the "This is a redirect" (Redr) template:

Template {{This is a redirect}} may be used to add from one to seven rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • This is a redirect from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to the title in accordance with the Wikipedia naming conventions for capitalisation, or it leads to a title that is associated in some way with the conventional capitalisation of this redirect title. This may help writing, searching and international language issues. For more information follow the bold category link.
    • If this redirect is an incorrect capitalization (a typo), then it is made available to aid searches, so pages that use this link should be updated to link directly to the target.
    • Use this rcat to tag only mainspace redirects; when other capitalisations are in other namespaces, use {{R from modification}} instead.

#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{Redr|from other capitalisation}}
Template {{Redr}} is an alias for the This is a redirect template, which may be used to add up to seven appropriate rcats, along with their parameters, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation on its template page and its comparison page. This rcat may also tag a redirect individually:
#REDIRECT [[(target article title)]]

{{R from other capitalisation}}
This is in accord with instructions found at WP:REDCAT.


  • |1=printworthy – By default, this template tags and categorizes redirects as unprintworthy. Use the first parameter to subdue this behavior and populate Category:Printworthy redirects in the following manner:
{{Redr|from other capitalisation|p1=printworthy}}
{{R from other capitalisation|printworthy}}
  • |2=text, |of=text or |reason=text, use of any of these will change:
"...from a title with another method of capitalisation. It leads to..."
"...from a title with another method of capitalisation of text."
This is useful when the term redirected from is an alternative capitalisation of a different name for or subtopic of the article title rather than of the title itself. For example, the redirect Northern Blue Jay:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]

{{Redr|from subtopic|to subsection|from other capitalisation|n3=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}|unprintworthy}}
or if applied individually:
#REDIRECT [[Blue jay#Subspecies]]
{{R from subtopic}}
{{R to subsection}}
{{R from other capitalisation|of=the redirect {{-r|Northern blue jay}}}}
