What is a Space Wiki shortcut?

"Shortcuts" in Space Wiki are a specialized type of Redirection page that can be used to get to a Space Wiki project reference page more quickly.

How to use Space Wiki shortcuts

A Wikipedia shortcut can be entered into the Wikipedia search box to quickly bring you to a reference page.
For example, you can type "SW:R" into the search box and click the "Go" button to get to the Space Wiki "Redirect" reference page, instead of having to type "Space Wiki:Redirect".

Alternatively, you can use the shortcut in the URL (web address). For example, you are currently viewing the Space Wiki:Shortcut page in English. The URL is
http://space.wikia.com/wiki/Space_Wiki:Shortcut
You could get from here to the Space Wiki:Redirect project reference page by replacing "Space Wiki:Shortcut" with "SW:R" 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 "wp:r" instead of "SW:R".

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

Space Wiki shortcut policy

Reserved for Space Wiki project reference pages (SW: namespace) only.

Adding shortcut link boxes

A shortcut link box (the "shortcut template") is added to the entry source ("Editing" page) using {{Shortcut|[[SW:<x>]]}}.
For example, placing the shortcut template and substituting SHORT for <X> gives:

Shortcut:
SW:SHORT
