To create a 'redirect, there are two methods:

  1. Start a new page, and in the edit box, type or paste in the name of the page you want to redirect to. Select the target namepage, and click #R on the toolbar (just to the right of the middle). Click save, and the redirect is created.
  2. Create a page, then move to a new name. A redirect will be automatically created, from the original name to the new name.

When a redirect points to another redirect, the software won't automatically pass you to the final destination (to avoid the risk of an infinite loop). This is a double redirect, and these are checked and automatically fixed on a semi-regular basis by a bot. You can fix it by hand if you like, or just wait for a week or two until a bot fixes it.
