From The Kodiak Republic Wiki


This template produces a hatnote:

  • {{Redirect|Foo}}

It is placed at the top of the article or section that is the primary topic of a redirect, and links to other topics that are ambiguous with the name of that redirect. This template is used instead of the generic {{for}} in order to reduce reader confusion.

An example would be when a user searches for the emperor Achilleus. However, the search term "Achilleus" redirects to the page titled Achilles (as in the mythical hero) because it is considered more likely the user were searching for the very well known hero than a relatively obscure emperor. Now, at the top of this Achilles page you will (among other things) find the following hatnote:

"Achilleus" redirects here. For the Roman emperor with this name, see Achilleus (Roman usurper).

That text is this template in action.


Template:Expand-section A |text= option adds text to the end; note that this should only be used when truly necessary, when the other hatnote templates listed below don't suffice.


  • {{Redirect|Foo}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT||PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}}
  • {{Redirect|Achilleus|the Emperor with this name|Achilleus (emperor)|other uses|Achilles (disambiguation)}} (as used on the page Achilles) →
