Template:Remove first word/doc

From electowiki

This template removes 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.


One parameter (space as separator):

  • {{Remove first word|string}}
  • {{Remove first word|1=string}}

Two parameters (user-defined character as separator):

  • {{Remove first word|string|sep=character}}
  • {{Remove first word|1=string|sep=character}}


  • {{Remove first word|Fôo bår bàz}} → bår bàz
  • {{Remove first word| Fôo bår bàz}} → bår bàz
  • {{Remove first word| a b}} → b
  • {{Remove first word|Fôo-bår}}
  • {{Remove first word|Fôo-bår bàz}} → bàz
  • {{Remove first word|Fôo-bår bàz|sep=-}} → bår bàz
  • {{Remove first word|34,000,500|sep=,}} → 000,500
  • {{Remove first word|Hear ye, users|sep=,}} → users
  • {{Remove first word|1=len = a+b|sep==}} → a+b
