Template:Interwiki redirect/doc

Usage Note[edit source]

This redirect is for redirecting through different wikis, which was previously impossible due to technical restrictions but which sometimes have undesirable implications; it categorizes pages in Category:Soft redirects, and adds the __SOFTREDIR__ magic word.

Please continue to use:

#REDIRECT [[Other page]]

for all redirects within the Public Test Wiki.

As well, for redirects to non-existent pages, including global user pages, on Public Test Wiki,, either {{soft redirect}} or {{soft redirect 2}} should be used.

See also {{soft redirect}} for a more flexible template.
