Template:Mbox Script error: No such module "Lua banner".

Usage[edit]

Characters in the source string are counted: the first is index Template:Code, the last one is index Template:Code. The substring requested can be defined by these two indexes. Also, the substring can be defined by one index, and the substring length. The options are: {{str mid|<string>|<index of first character>|<length of substring>|<index of last character>}} It returns a part of the <string>, starting with character on position index, length <sublength>, last character returned is end index.

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|5|3}} → efghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

If parameter 2 is omitted, start is from character 1:

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz||5}} → AbcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

If parameter 3 is omitted, the whole rest of the string is returned:

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|15}} → opqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

Counting from the end[edit]

By entering a negative value, the index is counted from the end:

Instead if substring length, use index for last character[edit]

By using parameter |4=n, a number, you do not ask for substring length, but the last character (as counted from the start of the input string):

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|5||7}} → efghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

Spaces are kept[edit]

In the returned substring, spaces are kept:

But the input string is trimmed:

Error messages[edit]

When the ranges (either param2 or the substring length) is out impossible in the string, an error is returned:

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|30}}String Module Error: String subset index out of rangeTemplate:Yesno
  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|0|45}} → efghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

The error can be suppressed by using |ignore errors=true. A blank (empty string) will be returned:

  • {{str mid|Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|0|45|ignore errors=true}} → efghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzTemplate:Yesno

Error category[edit]

  • |no category=true switches off category adding.
  • |error category=[[Category:Your category name]] sets the category to be added when in case of an error.
Default is Category:Errors reported by Module String.
