Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [view] [edit] [history] [purge/refresh]


  • This template is for creating soft redirect(s), that is to say, short pages inviting readers to visit another page or pages (Can not be performed with a classical redirect due to technical restrictions)
  • This template is also used to redirect an entry to a special page (hard redirects have been disabled)
  • For redirecting categories,
    use  {{Category redirect}}  instead
  • For all other redirects within the wiki,
    please continue to use #REDIRECT [[Article name]]
  • For redirects to other Wikia wiki's (highly not recommended),
    you can use #REDIRECT [[ name:Article name]]

  1. Category:Single soft redirected pages if you use {{Soft redirect}}, {{Soft redirect1}} or {{Single soft redirect}}
  2. Category:Double soft redirected pages if you use {{Soft redirect2}} or {{Double soft redirect}}
