Module:Redirect

From Atrocious Gameplay Wiki

Documentation for this module may be created at Module:Redirect/doc

-- Given a single page name determines what page it redirects to and returns the target page name, or the
-- passed page name when not a redirect. The passed page name can be given as plain text or as a page link.
-- Returns page name as plain text, or when the bracket parameter is given, as a page link. Returns an
-- error message when page does not exist or the redirect target cannot be determined for some reason.

-- Thus these are roughly the same:
-- [[{{#invoke:redirect|main|redirect-page-name}}]] and {{#invoke:redirect|main|redirect-page-name|bracket=yes}}
