Shortcut: WD:SC


From Wikidata
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A shortcut is a redirect page that provides an abbreviated wikilink to a project page. Shortcuts are created for the convenience of the users and are commonly used on talk pages. If there is a shortcut for a page, it is often displayed at the top of the page next to the page title, as on this page (inserted with the template {{Shortcut}}).

The shortcuts are normally placed in the Wikidata namespace – which name can be abbreviated to WD – so they can be typed quickly. Shortcuts to talk pages are placed in the Wikidata talk namespace, which can be abbreviated to WT.

It is not technically possible to make a redirect page which automatically selects the right language version of a translatable page, so shortcuts to these pages will only go to the English page.

Here is a list of some shortcuts. The list is not complete.
