Template:Category redirect

Redirect arrow.svg

This category is located at: [[:Category:{{{1}}}]]

Note: This category should be empty. Any content should be recategorised.
This tag should be used on existing categories that are likely to be used by others, even though the "real" category is elsewhere. Redirected categories should be empty and not categorised themselves. It should not be used on categories that are misspellings and thus unlikely to be used by other people.

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


Use on any category that should be redirected. This template should only be used on categories likely to be used by others, where another category already exists under a different name.

{{category redirect|correct category}}


This template uses only one (unnamed) mandatory parameter. Enter the name of the correct category, ie. the target of the redirection. Do not include the "Category:" part of the page name.

A second parameter, category can be used to prevent any categorisation from taking place.


When used in the Category namespace, this template automatically sorts categories into Category:Category redirects. Two additional tracking categories will be added in certain circumstances:

This behaviour can be deactivated by adding the code |category= to the template.
