Soft redirect page
This documentation is transcluded from Template:SOFTREDIRECT/doc.

This template can be used for interwiki redirects (where #REDIRECT doesn't work). For the sites that support it, the target page will have the "Redirected from..." line as if it was a local redirect. (Most Wikimedia sites don't support this, but the English Wiktionary does. For example.) However, please continue to use #REDIRECT [[Other page]] for redirects within Wikimedia Commons. For category "redirects" within Commons, please use {{category redirect|other category}}.

Note: This isn't really a redirect to Meta's main page - that's just the example.

The template automatically sets the following categories: This places tagged pages in Category:Commons soft redirects or Category:User soft redirects


{{SOFTREDIRECT |1= |2= |3= }}

Normal usage is simply {{SOFTREDIRECT|Page name}}.

Example with optional parameters:

{{SOFTREDIRECT|w:Main Page|Wikipedia's main page|Fake redirect}}
