Template:Trim brackets/doc

From MattWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This template trims leading and trailing square brackets and whitespace from a string. This is similar to {{delink}}, but it won't remove brackets from the middle of the string. The string should be passed as the first unnamed parameter or using |1= if your string contains any = signs. You may substitute this template - that is, if used as {{subst:trim brackets}}, the resulting wikicode is "clean".

Usage

{{trim brackets|text}} = text with any leading or trailing square brackets removed (as long as text doesn't contain any = signs).

{{trim brackets|1=text}} = text with any leading or trailing square brackets removed.

Example

  • "{{trim brackets|1= [[abc]], [[def]], and [[ghi]] }}" produces "abc]], def, and [[ghi"
    ("{{delink|1= [[abc]], [[def]], and [[ghi]] }}" produces "abc, def, and ghi").
