This high-risk template has been protected from editing to prevent vandalism. (protection log). Please discuss changes on the talk page or request unprotection. You may use {{editprotected}} on the talk page to ask for an administrator to make an edit for you.

Shortcut:
Template:Template doc page transcluded

Usage

This template is primarily used on Wikipedia guideline and policy pages to show the shortest alias of a given page. For example, WP:SHORT redirects to Wikipedia:Shortcut. The point of this template is not to list every single redirect (indeed, that's what Special:Whatlinkshere is for); for any given page, it should list only one or two common and easily-remembered redirects.

Don't use this template on other templates, e.g. to state that the shortcut to Template:Foo is in fact {{Foo}}. There's no need to state the obvious like that, by default every template uses its own name as a shortcut.

Template usage

Please use {{template shortcut}} to indicate convenient template redirects, which is specifically intended for that purpose.
