Fallout Wiki

Shortcuts are used to be able to easier link to certain pages in the "Fallout Wiki" namespace, typically policy and guideline pages. Shortcuts are redirects that all start with FW: followed by a short abbreviation. All available shortcuts can be found in the list below or in Category:Shortcuts.

Setting up a shortcut

Create a new page with the proper name ("Fallout Wiki:<shortcut>") and then insert:

#REDIRECT [[name of target#FW:{{subst:PAGENAME}}]] 

{{shortcut}} should be placed at the top of the page. If the template is already present, add the additional template.
