Moon Phases Count Suffixes

Scroll Prev Up Next More

Moon phases suffixes are used to restrict the number of Moon phases displayed in a duration token suffix that is applied to the [mp] moon phase token to display a list of moon phases over a period of time, as in the example below.

 

 

:cnt_XX

the Number of Phases Suffix lets you restrict the number of Moon phases to display (where XX represents a number from 1 to 99)

:beg_XX

the Starting Phase Suffix lets you begin the displaying of Moon phases on the Nth phase of the period (where XX represents a number from 1 to 99).

 

This suffix, combined with the one above can be used to display, for example:

the first 26 phases of the year in one box
[1mp:y+00:beg_1:cnt_26]

the remaining phases of the year in another box
[1mp:y+00:beg_27:cnt_30]

(where we use a count of 30 in the second token, to ensure we include all remaining phases of the year).

 

These suffixes only work in conjunction with a duration token suffix.
