Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template returns the first word of the first parameter. Use |1= for the first parameter if the string may contain an equals sign (=). By default, words are delimited by spaces, but the optional parameter |sep= can set the separator to any character.

Usage[edit source]

One parameter (space as separator):

  • {{First word|string}}
  • {{First word|1=string}}

Two parameters (user-defined character as separator):

  • {{First word|string|sep=character}}
  • {{First word|1=string|sep=character}}

Examples[edit source]

  • {{First word|Foo bar baz}} → Foo
  • {{First word| Foo bar baz}} → Foo
  • {{First word|Foo}} → Foo
  • {{First word|Foo-bar-baz}} → Foo-bar-baz
  • {{First word|Foo-bar-baz|sep=-}} → Foo
  • {{First word|34,000,500|sep=,}} → 34
  • {{First word|Hear ye, users|sep=,}} → Hear ye
  • {{First word|1=len = a+b|sep==}} → len
