Shortcut

Usage

This template is taken fFrom Wikipedia and is used to show the shortest alias of a given page. For example, WP:V redirects to Wikipedia:Verification

Usage is this:

in your main page, you place the fFollowing:

{{shortcut|[[XXX]]}}

Where XXX is the shortcut name you want to use. XXX will then be a link. Then you need to go to your new blank page XXX and create a redirect. That is done like this:

#REDIRECT [[My Original Page With A Very Long Name]]

Then you may always use the shortened page name XXX as a valid page, and you will have a swanky little grey box on the side of your page pointing people towards that shortcut.
