The information here is rather sparse. Perhaps a link to Mediawiki could be added? [1] -- Goblincleaver(Roshambo) (talk) 17:13, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

Already exists, see the "see also" section --Uberfuzzy 19:43, October 15, 2009 (UTC)

There seems to be two pages on the same thing; Help:Parser functions and Help talk:ParserFunctions. --boy.pockets (talk | my boom) 05:35, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

This help page is pretty bad Edit

It has almost no info and Help:StringFunctions redirects to here, but there is really no useful info. Also, the "See also" section has outlinks that are not identified as such, so they really should be in an "External links" section. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9 Apr 2011 4:58 PM Pacific

Parsing template input Edit

Hello. Is there a way to further parse template input? Like split by commas or list items? I would like to categorize articles by each item in some lists.

| paramter = item 1, item 2


| parameter =
* item 1
* item 2

Thank you in advance. Lady Aleena (talk) 04:06, November 18, 2017 (UTC)

You should consider trying out Help:Lua templating. This allows you to parse all sorts of inputs, including spliting comma separated lists. noreplyz talk 09:03, November 18, 2017 (UTC)
