Usage[edit source]

This template provides an easy way to link a redirect page without following the redirect.

{{no redirect|page name|label}}

It accepts two unnamed parameters:

  • 1= (required) the name of the page to link.
  • 2= (optional) the text to be displayed. If this is omitted then the input of the first parameter is used.

Example[edit source]

Instead of having to copy/paste or type:

  • [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Silence_of_the_Sea&redirect=no ''The Silence of the Sea'']

an editor can type:

  • ''{{No redirect|The Silence of the Sea}}''

or an alias can be used, as in:

  • ''{{-r|The Silence of the Sea}}''

Both of those will take users directly to the same redirect page and display its pagename as a bluelink thus (using the alias): Template:-r.

The second parameter (label) may be useful in discussions on talk pages. For example,

  • {{-r|The Silence of the Sea|this redirect}}

may appear on a talk page in this context: "For reference, see Template:-r."

If there is no page with that name given by the first parameter, the template generates a redlink as for any article name:

Also, if a page is not a redirect, a normal link is displayed:
