The Vault - Fallout Wiki

Shortcuts are used to be able to easier link to certain pages in the "The Vault" namespace, typically policy and guideline pages. Shortcuts are simply redirects which all start with The Vault: followed by a number of letters in upper case. The letters should match what they link to to a certain degree; avoid completely random combinations.

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 ("The Vault:<shortcut>") and then insert:

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

{{shortcut}} should then be placed either at the top of the page or in the section you want the shortcut to point to. If the template is already present in the location where you wanted to put it, simply add your new shortcut to it.
