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}}. To use it, enter:
{{loop1|times to repeat|string}}
If string contains an equals sign, you must put "|2=string" instead of "|string". Examples:

  • {{loop1|4|n}} produces nnnn
  • {{loop1|25|test}} produces testtesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttesttest
  • {{#expr:2{{loop1|50|*2}}}} produces 2.2517998136852E+15
  • {{loop1|9|2==}} produces ==== (the "2=" must be present)
  • {{loop1|3|{{CURRENTYEAR}}}} produces 202420242024
