This is a EVE Online Wiki project reference page.

The list of available EVE Online Wiki shortcuts can be found at EVE Online Wiki:EVEOW or EVEOW:EVEOW.

What is an EVE Online Wiki shortcut?[edit source]

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

How to use EVE Online Wiki shortcuts[edit source]

An EVE Online Wiki shortcut can be entered into the EVE Online Wiki search box to quickly bring you to a reference page.

For example, you can type "EVEOW:R" into the search box and click the "Go" button to get to the EVE Online Wiki "Redirect" reference page, instead of having to type "EVE Online Wiki:Redirect".

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

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

EVE Online Wiki shortcut policy[edit source]

Reserved for EVE Online Wiki project reference pages (EVEOW: namespace) only. Some exceptions may arise on a case-by-case basis.

Adding shortcut link boxes[edit source]

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