} Welcome to WikiProject Redirect! We are a group of fellow editors who are dedicated to the improvement of the standards, categorization and maintenance of redirect pages. This is important, because redirect pages in the article space outnumber actual articles by about 3 to 2.

What links here

  • Click on "What links here" in the toolbox of the left column of a page, then use the filters to show redirects. One may also access the tool by clicking Special:WhatLinksHere and typing in the page title.


  • Sagittarius – a redirect editing gadget.
  • Capricorn – a modified version of Kephir's gadget updated February 2018 with more Rcats.
  • Archer – a user script forked from Sagittarius+ maintained as an alternative to Capricorn. It keeps the old rcat order, though. It's also said to be more lightweight.
  • NoRedirect – a script for preventing being redirected when clicking on a redirect link.
  • Twinkle – a tool that can easily tag and categorize redirects, among other things.
  • Redirect Creator – a script for mass-creating redirects
