When used with the "Redirect category shell" (Rcat shell) template:

Template {{Redirect category shell}} may be used to add one or more rcat templates, along with their parameters and categories, to a redirect. For more information see the documentation page below.

When used by itself:

  • From an abbreviation: This is a redirect from an abbreviation to a related topic, such as the expansion of the abbreviation.
    • Instead of this template, use {{R from acronym}} for acronyms pronounced as words, such as NATO and RADAR; or
    • Use {{R from initialism}} for those pronounced as letters, such as CIA and HIV; or
    • Use {{R from short name}}, instead, for the initials of a person's name, and other shortenings not typically classed as abbreviations.
