Template:Wikiquote redirect/doc

This template is only for quotation entries that currently exist on Wikiquote and which, due to previous re-creations, are likely to be re-created in unencyclopedic form. Do not place it on every possible list of quotations. This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.


{{wq}} {{subst:longcomment}}
Provides a soft redirect to the Wikiquote page, using the current page's name. Then it also substitutes a {{longcomment}} to prevent a page from being listed on Special:Shortpages.
{{wq|{{PAGENAME}}}} {{subst:longcomment}}
Provides a link to the Wikiquote page for the given word.
Used for pages linking to lists or categories on Wikiquote.


  1. This template should not be used via substitution in most cases.
  2. This template will categorise tagged articles into Category:Redirects to Wikiquote.
