DCCWikipedia:Shortcut

DCCWiki, a community DCC encyclopedia.

This is a DCCWikipedia project reference page.

The list of available DCCWikipedia shortcuts can be found at DCCWikipedia:DW or DW:DW.

What is a Wikipedia shortcut?

"Shortcuts" in DCCWikipedia are a specialized type of Redirection page that can be used to get to a DCCWikipedia project reference page more quickly.

How to use Wikipedia shortcuts

A Wikipedia shortcut can be entered into the Wikipedia search box to quickly bring you to a reference page.
For example, you can type "DW:R" into the search box and click the "Go" button to get to the DCCWikipedia "Redirect" reference page, instead of having to type "DCCWikipedia:Redirect".

Alternatively, you can use the shortcut in the URL (web address). For example, you are currently viewing the DCCWikipedia:Shortcut page in English. The URL is
http://wiki.dccforall.com/DCCWikipedia:Shortcut
You could get from here to the DCCWikipedia:Redirect project reference page by replacing "DCCWikipedia:Shortcut" with "DW:R" in the URL (web address) field (followed by "Enter").

Shortcuts are presented in all capital letters ("All-Caps"), but the search box is case-insensitive. For example, in the search box, you can type "dw:r" instead of "DW:R".

However, using the URL method typically requires that you match the capitalization of the shortcut.

Adding shortcut link boxes

A shortcut link box (the "shortcut template") is added to the entry source ("Editing" page) using {{Shortcut|[[DW:<x>]]}}.
For example, placing the shortcut template and substituting SHORT for <X> gives:

Shortcut:
