This documentation is transcluded from Template:Str right/doc.


Note: if you want to edit this template, first try your modifications on {{Str right/sandbox}}.You can then test your edits in {{Str right/testcases}}.
When the new version is ready, you can move it to the main template.

Usage[edit]

{{Str right|<string>|<offset>}}

Gives the characters from <offset> to the end of the string.

A negative <offset> is treated the same as zero, which simply returns the original string.

If <offset> is longer than <string> then this returns an empty string.

If <offset> is invalid, empty or undefined, this template goes berserk, so don't do that.

Limitations[edit]

  • Up to 100 chararacters in the input string. If possible, first check length of input string using {{<string>}}. Using strings longer than 100 characters may result in the error "max index is 100 for str_sub".
  • Limited set of characters.
  • Expensive.

Examples[edit]

  • {{Str right| lorem ipsum dolor sit amet | 10 }} → m dolor sit amet
  • {{Str right| lorem ipsum dolor sit amet | 1 }} → orem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • {{Str right| lorem ipsum dolor sit amet | 0 }} → lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • {{Str right |123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.1 | 99}} → 3456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.123456789.max index is 100 for str sub long
