EVEOW:SHORT

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

"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 shortcutsEdit

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 policyEdit

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

Adding shortcut link boxesEdit

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}}
