What is a Wiktionary shortcut?Edit

“Shortcuts” in Wiktionary, derived from their counterparts in Wikipedia, are a specialized type of Redirection page that can be used to get to a commonly used Wiktionary reference page more quickly.

How to use Wiktionary shortcutsEdit

A Wiktionary shortcut can be be entered into the Wiktionary search box to quickly bring you to a reference page.
For example, you can type “WT:BP” into the search box and click the “Go” button to get to the Wiktionary:Beer parlour page, instead of having to type “Wiktionary:Beer parlour”.

Alternatively, you can use the shortcut in the URL (web address). For example, you are currently viewing the Wiktionary:Shortcut page in English. The URL is
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Shortcut
You could get from here to the Wiktionary:Beer parlour page by replacing “Wiktionary:Shortcut” with “WT:BP” 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 “wt:bp” instead of “WT:BP”.

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

Adding shortcut link boxes in the destination pagesEdit

You can add a “shortcut link box” in a shortcut destination page, in order to educate the users about the shortcuts available. A shortcut link box (the “shortcut template”) is added to the entry source (“Editing” page) using {{shortcut|WT:<x>}}.

Examples:

Shortcut:
[[WT:WS]]
{{shortcut|WT:BP}}
{{shortcut|WT:WS}} renders as:
