| You may have been redirected here by the LyricWiki:Redirect page.|
If so, you will see "Redirected from LyricWiki:Redirect" above this banner, near the top of the page.
A redirect causes a user to immediately jump to another page. There are several uses for redirection, including:
- Sending someone to the correct page when they aren't certain of the correct name or spelling. Looking for a song called " " would redirect you to the correct title, " ".
- Making sure an article can be found under an alternate name. If you were looking for " ", you would be directed to the group's proper name, .
- Locating an artist who uses more than one name, such as " ", " ", and " " all getting you to the artist's modern name of .
- Handling discrepancies in spelling between parts of the world, such as "colour" instead of "color".
- Working with artists whose names are in non-Latin alphabets (such as Arabic, Cyrillic, Greek, or Japanese). A redirect can make it possible to find the artist under both their natively-spelled name and the "romanized" version.
- Finding the correct name when diacritical marks are involved, such as " " leading to the correct spelling .
Objects not to be referenced by a redirect
- Even though it is possible to redirect templates, categories and files, please use the actual target in such cases, as these objects must be used by their explicit names.
Replace the entire content of the page to be redirected with the following:
#REDIRECT [[Target Page]]
Please leave the edit summary blank; it will be automatically filled with the redirect target.
- When placing this code on a page, always remove any other text.
- Redirection should be done in one step, if possible. You should always redirect to the appropriate page the first time, to prevent broken redirects and doubled redirects. For example, " " should redirect immediately to the correct name " ", not to " ". Likewise, " " should redirect only to the correct artist page.
- Consider redirection instead of deletion when pages contain minor errors, such as incorrect spelling or capitalization. If it's a common mistake, such as looking for " " instead of , a redirection will make sure other users quickly find the correct article.
