Redirect Quick Guide

From YETI Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A redirect page is useful for situations where an article can fall under two or more spellings and you want each of these spellings to point to the one main page.

For example, you have created the page Kōfu but you know that people will also search for Kofu without the overscore. You would like the search term Kofu to point to the page Kōfu.

To achieve this,

  1. Create the page Kōfu (as your main page)
  2. Create the page Kofu (this will be your redirect page)
  3. On the Kofu page, just add the tag #REDIRECT [[Kōfu]]

Then, if they search for Kōfu, kōfu, Kofu or kofu, the wiki will send the user straight to the Kōfu page.
