A soft redirect is a very short page that essentially tells users to look at another site to obtain the information they were seeking.

To create a soft redirect, place the {{Soft redirect}} template on the page (e.g. {{soft redirect|http://cotw.cc/wiki/http://cotw.cc/wiki/Green_knowledge_ecosystem|Green knowledge ecosystem on the COTW wiki}}).

The template will automatically categorize the page into Category:Soft redirects.

Guidelines[edit]

Soft redirects should generally only to point to wiki sites, and generally should be applied or approved by an admin. (This is a proposed guideline. Discuss changes on the talk page.)
