This template trims whitespace from a string. The string should be passed as the first unnamed parameter. You may substitute this template - that is, if used as {{subst:trim}}, the resulting wikicode is "clean".

Usage[change | change source]

{{trim|text}} = text with any leading or trailing whitespace removed.

Example[change | change source]

  • {{trim| abc}} produces abc.
