This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Help:Redirect article.
if i put a "#REDIRECT [ [ Category:ABC ] ]" on a page, it redirects to that page, but it also adds that page to the cattegory.
So if ABC, abc and abcde all redirect to Category:ABC, all 3 of them end up as links at the bottom of the page.
3 Links from Category:ABC to Category:ABC isn't usful at all, how do i prevent them from end up in the category?
#redirect [[:Category:ABC]]... the colon prevents it being parsed as a category flag, but instead as a link. Note that redirecting category pages themselves is not a particularly good idea, as it can make the category system more confusing. Kirkburn (talk) 18:24, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
Redirect to wikipedia and other things Edit
Is it possible to create a redirect to wikipedia inside a wikia article? I tried this but it did not work (please see this http://sailormoon.wikia.com/wiki/Moon_Kingdom) also, I am creating a template (http://sailormoon.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Monster-of-the-day) but I get the "Template loop detected" error message. What is going on?

- Wikia does not allow redirects to outside wikis, or even other Wikia wikis, due to people being unable to return to the wiki they left after clicking the link because most browsers don't have back buttons, or something like that. It's explained in Help:Soft_redirect
- The template seems to be working, so I'll ignore it unless further info is supplied. --Yoshord 01:50, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Listing all redirects in a wiki Edit
Hi to all! Does somebody know a way to show/list all redirects that exist in a wiki? I know there is the special page Special:ListRedirects, but it is limited to 1000 pages. If it is not possible, is there a way to find them (maybe via the logfile) by using the pywikipedia bot? Thanks a lot! --Plasmarelais 17:02, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

hopefully this is just what im looking for, looks like i have a lot to read Im trying to find a way to build an e-mail list.
More names for pages Edit
An example on HP Wikia if you enter a name like "Harry James Potter" it will redirect you to article "Harry Potter". I would like this for my Wikia as well, but I was wondering if they actually had to create all these pages or is it possible to make it on a page Harry Potter that if someone visits "Harry James Potter" it redirects him there?
