This is a Wookieepedia project reference page.

The complete list of available Wookieepedia shortcuts can be found at WP:LIST or by topic at WP:DIR.

What is a Wookieepedia shortcut?Edit

"Shortcuts" in Wookieepedia are a specialized type of Redirection page that can be used to get to a Wookieepedia project reference page more quickly.

How to use Wookieepedia shortcutsEdit

A Wookieepedia shortcut can be entered into the Wookieepedia search box to quickly bring you to a reference page. It helps if you like the page or you are working on that page and it takes a long time to get to.

For example, you can type "WP:C" into the search box and click the "Go" button to get to the Wookieepedia "Copyrights" reference page, instead of having to type "Wookieepedia:Copyrights".

Alternatively, you can use the shortcut in the URL (web address). For example, you are currently viewing the Wookieepedia:Shortcut page in English. The URL is http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Wookieepedia:Shortcut. You could get from here to the Wookieepedia:Copyrights project reference page by replacing "Wookieepedia:Shortcut" with "WP:C" in the URL (web address) field (followed by "Enter").

Shortcuts are presented in all capital letters ("All-Caps"), but the search box is case-insensitive. For example, in the search box, you can type "wp:c" instead of "WP:C".

However, using the URL method typically requires that you match the capitalization of the shortcut.

Wookieepedia shortcut policyEdit

Reserved for Wookieepedia project reference pages (WP: namespace) only.

Adding shortcut link boxesEdit

A shortcut link box (the "shortcut template") is added to the entry source ("Editing" page) using {{Shortcut|WP:<x>}}.
For example, placing the shortcut template and substituting SHORT for <X> gives the template viewable at the top of the page: {{Shortcut|WP:SHORT}}
