This template should only be used on category pages.

[Edit] [🔄Purge] Template-info.png Template documentation
Not to be confused with Template:Redirect category.
For the Wikipedia policy on redirecting categories, see [[:"Wikipedia logo"WP:CATRED]] .


Example: To redirect from Category:Authors to Category:Writers, simply add the following to Category:Authors:

{{Category redirect|Writers}} or
{{Category redirect|Category:Writers}} with optional namespace prefix

This template adds category pages to Category:Wikipedia soft redirected categories.

If a category redirect exists but is not likely to be useful (see criteria in WP:Category redirects that should be kept), tag it with {{db-c1}} for deletion.
