(Redirected from Redirect)
Jump to: navigation, search

A redirect is a page which has no content itself, but sends the reader to another article, section of an article, or page, usually from an alternative title. For example, if you type "Hidden corridor" in the search box, or follow the wikilink Hidden corridor, you will be taken to the article Secret passage, with a note at the top of the page: "(Redirected from Hidden corridor)". This is because the page Hidden corridor contains the wikitext #REDIRECT [[Secret passage]], which defines it as a redirect page and indicates the target article. It is also possible to redirect to a specific section of the target page, using the #REDIRECT [[Page name#Section title]] syntax.
