Help:Redirect

A redirect is a page with no content other than an entry in the form:

  1. REDIRECT link in internal link style

If the link is to an existing page in the same project, going to the redirect (by means of a link, the URL, or the Go button) results in the new page, just like following the link, except that the browser shows the original URL, and the new page shows a redirection message below the title. (To get the canonical URL in your browser's address bar, click the article tab.)

For example, if somebody goes to: Help:Redirection, then they will end up at this page instead.

If the link is to a non-existing page in the same project, or to a page in another project, one simply arrives at the redirect page.

As a simple way to avoid problems with infinite recursion, if the redirect target is another redirect page, the second redirect is not applied.

When a page called for inclusion is a redirect page, the redirect target is included instead, with the same parameters, without any redirect message. Again, a double redirect does not work.
