'''Redirects''' are ==What is a tool of {{WikiTitle}} that helps users who type in an URL directly in the address field to find their mark.Redirect?==
A redirect is a string of code that makes a page automatically go to another page instead of loading itself. An example is to have the plural versions of a word redirected to the singular. A link to [[Barbarians]] will for example redirect to [[Barbarian]].

==How to use a Redirect==
 
To make a redirect, just use the following string of characters on the first line of the page:
 
<blockquote><pre>#REDIRECT [[Barbarian]]</pre></blockquote>
 It's possible to add other content under the redirect string, but none noone will see it unless they visit the page itself. On the other hand it will enable the use of categorization and other effects.
Unfortunately, target links (such as <nowiki>[[Help:Markup#Creating_Links]]</nowiki>) will not work. The wiki will redirect to that page, but not straight to the section.
