#REDIRECT

[{{{1}}} {{{1}}}]

Template documentation[edit source]

This template is for creating soft redirects, i.e. short pages pointing readers to a page on a different site. These should generally be used only to point to wiki sites, and generally should be applied or approved by an admin. (That's just a proposal for a guideline - comment on the talk page.)

Usage[edit source]

The template takes two arguments:

  1. The first argument is the URL of the page you want to link to.
  2. The second argument is the display text for the link.

Example[edit source]

{{Soft redirect|http://cotw.cc/wiki/http://cotw.cc/wiki/Green_knowledge_ecosystem|Green knowledge ecosystem on the COTW wiki}}

displays as:

#REDIRECT
Green knowledge ecosystem on the COTW wiki

Categorization[edit source]

Placing this template on a page automatically categorizes the page into Category:Soft redirects.

Protection[edit source]

Pages with soft directs should be protected or semi-protected to avoid being hijacked for spam sites, or otherwise being inappropriately changed.
