LQWiki:How to use a redirect
To redirect a page (1) to a different page (2), enter on page 1:
#REDIRECT [[NAME OF PAGE 2]]
For example, if somehow two pages were created for foo: [[FOO]] and [[Foo]], and you want anyone going to [[Foo]] to be redirected to [[FOO]], what you need to do is this: Go to the [[Foo]] page, click the edit button, and on the first line of the page put:
- #REDIRECT [[FOO]]
With no other text in that page.
When to use a Redirect:
- Alternate spellings
- Alternate capitalizations
- Facilitate disambiguation
- Plurals, tenses, etc.
- To avoid broken links
Later, if you need to edit a redirect, go to:
(changing "Foo" in the above URL to whatever page is your "redirect page") and make your change.
