Redirects are used to forward users from one page name to another. They can be useful if a particular article is referred to by multiple names, or has alternative punctuation, capitalization or spellings.
Creare un redirect
You may start a new page with the name you want to direct from (see Help:Iniziare una nuova pagina). You can also use an existing page that you are making inactive as a page by going to that page and using the "edit" tab at the top. In either case, you will be inserting the following code at the very first text position of the Edit window for the page:
#REDIRECT [[nome pagina]]
where pagename is the name of the destination page. The word "redirect" is not case-sensitive, but there must be no space before the "#" symbol. Any text before the code will disable the code and prevent a redirect. Any text or regular content code after the redirect code will be ignored (and should be deleted from an existing page). However, to put or keep the current page name listed in a Category, the usual tag for that category is entered or kept on a line after the redirect code entry.
You should 'preview' (using the button below the Edit window, or use Alt-P) to check that you have entered the correct destination page name. The preview page will not look like the resulting redirect page, it will look like a numbered list, with the destination page in blue:
1. REDIRECT pagename
If the pagename as you typed it is not a valid page, it will show in red. Until there is a valid destination page, you should not make the redirect.
Vedere un redirect
Dopo aver creato un redirect, non potrai più andare a quella pagina perché il browser sarà reindirizzato. Per compensare questo, all'inizio della pagina ci sarà un link per il redirect. Cliccaci e sarai portato alla pagina di redirect.
By doing this, you can do all the things that any wiki page allows. You can go to the associated discussion page to discuss the redirect. You can view the history of the page, including a record of the redirect. You can edit the page if the redirect is wrong, and you can revert to an older version to remove the redirect.
Un redirect doppio (una pagina che reindirizza ad un redirect) non funzionerà. Per farlo funzionare, fai reindirizzare la prima pagina a quella a cui punta la seconda. Questa è una deliberata prevenzione per loop infiniti e per rendere più semplice le cose agli utenti meno esperti.
If you do need to delete a redirect, e.g. if the page name is offensive, or you wish to discourage people from referring to a concept by that name, then you simply go to the redirect page as mentioned above, and follow the procedures at Help:Sysop Deleting And Undeleting/It.
A double redirect is a page redirecting to a page which is itself a redirect, and it will not work. Instead, people will be presented with a view of the next redirect page. This is a deliberate restriction, partly to prevent infinite loops, and partly to keep things simple.
However, you could look out for double redirects and eliminate them by changing them to be 1-step redirects instead. You are most likely to need to do this after a significant page move. Use the "what links here" toolbox link to find double redirects to a particular page, or use Special:DoubleRedirects to find them throughout the whole wiki.
There is an option, $wgFixDoubleRedirects, to automatically fix double redirects with a job queue. However, it tends to aggravate page move vandalism, so it is disabled by default. The __STATICREDIRECT__ magic word can be used to skip the double-redirect fix on a particular page.
A redirect to a page in the category namespace
To redirect to a category page and prevent the redirect appearing in this category, precede the word "Category" with a colon, otherwise the redirect page will also be categorized to the category itself:
Suppressing a redirect
Users with the suppressredirect right may move a page without creating a redirect. By default this right is assigned to sysops and bots.
