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

This template extracts the current integer minute on two digits (between 00 and 59) from the current UTC time (as set on the Wikimedia server). The shown value should match the right hand side of 21:51.

Syntax
{{CURRENTMINUTE}}
Use {{subst:CURRENTMINUTE|subst=subst:}} to substitute the current minute.
Formula
{{0expr|(( {{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}} -30 round -2 ) mod 10000 ) div 100}}
{{subst:CURRENTMINUTE}} copies this code ready for optional substitution into another template. To avoid an obscure intermittent MOD bug for big numbers the template actually uses
( {{CURRENTTIMESTAMP}} - 10000000000 * {{CURRENTYEAR}} )
Warning
Pages asking for the current minute often also need other parts of {{ CURRENTTIMESTAMP }} = 20191208215117, and different "current" templates and variables can reflect different timestamps near hh:mm:59.
