Say the {{PAGENAME}} is "Netgear WNDR3400 1.0", is it possible to call {{PAGENAME}} and it only display "Netgear"?WifiShadow 14:51, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

{{#explode:{{PAGENAME}}| |0}}
1st param is string, 2nd is what to split by (space), 3rd is which slice you want (0=Netgear, 1=WNDR3400, 2=1.0). MediaWikiWiki:Extension:StringFunctions. Lunarity 17:58, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
hmmm, I must be missing something, I see it works here, but on my wiki the result is "{{#explode:Netgear WG511 3.0| |0}}" Seems {{PAGENAME}} works but not explode. WifiShadow 20:00, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
Odd. It works on the Wikia wiki I contribute to. Maybe an Admin disabled the StringFunctions extension (somehow) on yours? You can try this which should do the same thing (still using string functions though):
{{#sub:{{PAGENAME}}|0|{{#pos:{{PAGENAME}}| }}}}
If that doesn't work either then there are nasty template tricks to implement StringFunctions using ParserFunctions instead but those are slow, ugly and easily broken; you should check if StringFunctions is enabled and get it turned on if it isn't.

Not sure if this is what you want but can't you just do this? [[{{PAGENAME}}|Netgear]] The only downside to this is that it makes the pagename bold. Essiw 11:38, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
Try {{#explode:{{PAGENAMEE}}|_|0}}. It parses the page title (with underscores). Using spaces for this will not work because leading and trailing whitespace is ignored, so a space as a parameter will be treated as an empty string. AIFW speak to the boss (uncyc) 19:26, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
