Comic Name Standardization Template (Cnst)

This template is for the automatic link making of Comic names to ease the user in inputting comic titles.

It's often used to remove 'Vol 1' from the title and replace it with a #, such as:

Inputting: {{c|Shadow (DC Comics) Vol 1 1}} results in: Shadow (DC Comics) #1

It is also often used to insert 'Vol 1' when the volume is not specified, as in:

Inputting: {{c|Shadow (DC Comics) #1}} results in: Shadow (DC Comics) #1

The template allows one more field to be entered, which alters the link text:

Inputting: {{c|Shadow (DC Comics) #1|The Shadow from DC Comics}} results in: The Shadow from DC Comics

When the Volume is a number other than 1, it stays in the result:

Inputting: {{c|Shadow (DC Comics) Vol 2 1}} results in: Shadow (DC Comics) (Volume 2) #1
and inputting: {{c|Shadow (DC Comics) Vol 2 #1}} results in: Shadow (DC Comics) (Volume 2) #1

While the standard usage format is:

{{Cnst| Comic Title }}

More often, the template will be seen as:

{{c| Comic Title }}
