PAGENAMEBASE

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

Usage

This template returns the current {{PAGENAME}} minus (text in parentheses) or the final set of parentheses where more than one set exist.

e.g. {{PAGENAMEBASE}} on page Chiton (genus) returns Chiton

on Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) (album) returns Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)
on Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) returns Sweet Dreams
on Stadion der Freundschaft (Frankfurt (Oder)) returns Stadion der Freundschaft

Can also pass an optional page parameter:

  • {{PAGENAMEBASE|foo (bar)}} → "foo"
  • {{PAGENAMEBASE|foo bar}} → "foo bar"

It is not to be confused with {{BASEPAGENAME}}, which is a magic word that strips subpages, not parentheses.
