Usage

{{Str sub long |text|start|length}} = Substring of text starting at start and containing length characters. Base 0: the first character is numbered 0, and so on, e.g. {{str sub long|20090624130510|8|2}} returns the 2 characters starting at the 9th, i.e. "13"

start + length must be less than 100. The template operates on an extended character set.

Limitations

A string is limited to 500 total characters, but the substring can only span the first 100 characters. The presence of certain characters in the input may cause unexpected results, so {{Str_sub/any}} should be used to handle any possible character. Otherwise, there can be problems with some special characters. For example, {{Str sub long|abc%def|2|3}} → c%d works as desired, whereas if the output string contains any of :;*# the results are not as desired:
{{Str sub/any|abc:def|2|3}}Template:Str sub/any
{{Str sub long|abc:def|2|3}} → c

d

{{Str sub long|abc;def|2|3}} → c

d

{{Str sub long|abc*def|2|3}} → c

  • d

{{Str sub long|abc#def|2|3}} → c

  1. d
