Usage

This template is primarily used on Wikipedia guideline and policy pages to show the shortest alias of a given page. For example, WP:SHORT redirects to Wikipedia:Shortcut. The point of this template is not to list every single redirect (indeed, that's what Special:Whatlinkshere is for); for any given page, it should list only one or two common and easily-remembered redirects.

Don't use this template on other templates, e.g. to state that the shortcut to Template:Foo is in fact {{Foo}}. There's no need to state the obvious like that, by default every template uses its own name as a shortcut.

This template can take up to five shortcuts as parameters. For more parameters (up to 10) use {{policy shortcut}}.

The first parameter can be linked or unlinked; the remaining parameters must be unlinked.
