This is the documentation for {{shortcut}} and its sister templates. The shortcut family of templates is put in context here, but they each have their own documentation pages.

A shortcut template is a sort of evolved anchor template, but it adds a visual box graphic to the rendered page as well as providing an alternative name. Creating a redirect page is a requirement to fulfill the shortcut mechanism.

The characteristics of the box graphic are determined by which of the family of shortcut templates are chosen. For example the policy shortcut box has the word policy on it for use on policy pages. The graphic alignment of the box depends on the whether its a shortcut or a shortcut-l.

This template is not normally used for articles in the main namespace because the graphic produces an avoidable self-reference.

Usage[संपादित करें]

  1. Insert the shortcut. If it is to a section, put it on the line above the section title.
  2. Create a redirect page with the {{R from shortcut}} template suffixed to the redirect. Name the page after your shortcut name. Include the namespace name in both the shortcut name and the redirect page name. For example, substituting your own shortcut name as the title of the page, and substituting the proper namespace, add the following as the top-line on your redirect page:
    #REDIRECT [[Namespace:Title of page with#Optional very long section name]] {{R from shortcut}}
  3. Verify operation. Note that shortcut templates should display in all capitals, but operate without all capitals.

Be careful not to use a policy template on a guideline or essay.

These templates are mainly used on user pages and talk pages in reference to Wikipedia, Help, and Portal namespaces. These templates inform about the shortcuts available to the page they are on. For example, WP:SHORT redirects to Wikipedia:Shortcut and therefore Wikipedia:Shortcut renders a shortcut box listing WP:SHORT. It is a self-reference that is normally avoided in the main article namespace.

The point of these templates is not to list every single redirect for a page (indeed, that's what "What links here" is for), instead they should list only one or two common and easily-remembered redirects.

The shortcut template can take up to five shortcuts as parameters.

For policy pages you can use {{policy shortcut}} which takes up to ten shortcuts as parameters.

Anchors[संपादित करें]

These templates automatically add anchors. If a shortcut box with the shortcut WP:SHORT is placed on the page Wikipedia:Shortcut then the link Wikipedia:Shortcut#WP:SHORT will take you to the position in the page where that shortcut box is placed.

For instance, try this link: #WP:SHORT

Thus if you make a shortcut for a section of a page then you can use the anchor in the shortcut redirect itself. Like this:

#REDIRECT [[Pagename#WP:SHORT]] {{R from shortcut}}

Positioning[संपादित करें]

This template should be placed below the section header. The anchor is placed above the box such that the section header shows at the top of the page window unless the content below the shortcut is less than a page.

Before July 26, 2010, the anchor was inside the box, this caused the section header to scroll above the page window. Fixes for this issue included:

  • Placing the shortcut above the section header; a bit confusing when editing
  • Creating the redirect to the section header, not the shortcut; this would break if the section header was renamed
  • Placing an {{anchor}} in the section header that duplicated the shortcut

These fixes are no longer needed, but do not break the current implementation.
