Template:Redirect
Template documentation​[​view​] [edit] [history] [purge]
Using this template does not create a redirect. The following pages may have what you are looking for:
  • Wikipedia:Redirect is the official Wikipedia guideline on redirects. The page focuses on the rules and standards that the Wikipedia community has agreed to generally follow regarding redirects.
  • Help:Redirect is a how-to page that focuses on the technical aspects of redirects. It instructs editors on how redirects work and how to handle them without causing errors.
  • R template index contains a large list of templates that are used in order to tag and categorize redirects.
This template is used on approximately 45,000 pages and changes may be widely noticed. Test changes in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.
This template uses Lua:
This template produces a hatnote:
{{Redirect|Foo}}

"Foo" redirects here. For other uses, see Foo (disambiguation).
Its purpose is to reduce confusion by helping users get to their intended page if they were redirected to another page while, for example, searching for a topic. An example would be when a user searches for the emperor Achilleus. However, the search term "Achilleus" redirects to the page titled Achilles (as in the mythical hero) because it is considered more likely the user were searching for the very well known hero than a relatively obscure emperor. Now, at the top of this Achilles page you will (among other things) find the following hatnote:
"Achilleus" redirects here. For the Roman emperor with this name, see Achilleus (Roman usurper).
That text is this template in action.
Parameters
A |text= option adds text to the end; note that this should be only used when truly necessary, and the other hatnote templates listed below don't suffice.
Examples
  • {{Redirect|Foo}}

    "Foo" redirects here. For other uses, see Foo (disambiguation).
