Usage[edit]

This template is used to produce a simple loop that can repeat up to 150 times. It is not a real loop; it works by conditionally repeating the string. It is a simple version of {{For loop}}. To use it, enter:
{{loop|times to repeat|string}}
If string contains an equals sign, you must put "|2=string" instead of "|string". Examples:

  • {{loop|4|n}} produces nnnn
  • {{loop|25|test}} produces testtesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttest
  • {{#expr:2{{loop|50|*2}}}} produces 2.2517998136852E+15
  • {{loop|9|2==}} produces ========= (the "2=" must be present)
  • {{loop|3|{{CURRENTYEAR}}}} produces 201420142014
  • {{loop|3|[[File:Three asterisks.svg|15px]]   }} produces Three asterisks.svg   Three asterisks.svg   Three asterisks.svg
