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

The Template:Strlen_quick gives the length of parameter 1, as a text string, with a count of 0-80 characters, using a simple, quick method. This markup template was designed to run quickly and use only 5 levels of MediaWiki expansion depth, rather than 9-13 or more levels as in other string-length templates.

Usage:  {{strlen quick|abcdef}}       → 6
{{strlen quick|123456789.}} → 10
{{strlen quick|2.4| extra= -1}} → 3

The optional parameter "extra= -1" can be used to return a specific value when a text string exceeds the 80-character limit. The default result is -1 to indicate a string longer than 80 characters.
