This template does nothing.

More exactly, it outputs the null string. It's useful for programming advanced templates.

  • It often is used within a template to the right of an equals sign.
  • It can be useful in killing part of template or page containing text and html comments (<!--- some commented stuff --->) surrounding the combined strings and multiple lines inside the template, which feeds them ... nowhere. Into the mythological bit bucket.


It's also possible to use {{ns:0}} instead of {{void}}.

Some magic words like __END__ might also have the desired effect of doing nothing.
