Protected shortcut redirectEdit

This REDIRECT to {{WikiProject Ships}} needs Rcats (redirect category templates). Please modify it in the following manner:
from this:

#Redirect [[Template:WikiProject Ships]] 

to this:

#Redirect [[Template:WikiProject Ships]]
{{This is a redirect|from template shortcut|protected}}

Thank you very much! – Paine (Climax!)  03:54, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

  Question: Why not {{R from template shortcut}}? --Redrose64 (talk) 15:13, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, one could add the Rcats separately as in {{R from template shortcut}}{{R protected}}. The {{This is a redirect}} template (shortcut = {{Redr}}) results in an upgraded rendering of text on Diff pages, such as this page. That upgrade was made in prep for when the redirects themselves begin to render text, which is still an improvement in progress (T16323). – Paine (Climax!)  17:51, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
OK then,   Done --Redrose64 (talk) 19:25, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, Redrose64! And a dozen or more 2ya! File:Red roses.jpg – Paine (Climax!)  07:01, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

custom class category?Edit

Per this discussion, I thought to adjust this template so that WP:SHIPS could have a set index article class. At the bottom of all WP:SHIPS index articles is {{Shipindex}} which automatically categorizes these set index articles into Category:Set indices on ships. This template wants to categorize the class into Category:SIA-Class Ships articles. Is there a way to specify that |class=sia causes this template to use the already existing 'Set indices on ships' category or to leave these articles uncategorized for |class=sia? For the former, I suppose that we can create a category redirect. Editor MSGJ, you seem to be the expert here, can you offer suggestions?

@Trappist the monk: {{WPBM}} will always categorise into {{{class}}}-Class Ships articles so the best would be to create Category:SIA-Class Ships articles as a subcategory of Category:Ships articles by quality. The use of Category:Set indices on ships would be confusing anyway because that is for subject space pages rather than talk pages. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:19, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
