I'd like to abbreviate the series down to the first letter of each word.
Instead of: "The Lord of the Rings - 002 - The Two Towers."
I'd Like: "TLotR - 002 - The Two Towers."
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
Try
Code:
{series:re(([^\s])[^\s]+(\s|$),\1)}{series_index:0>3s| - | - }{title}
Personally, I would prefer
Code:
{series:shorten(4,-,4)}{series_index:0>3s| [|] }{title}
(for some values in the shorten) because the first letter of a single-word series name doesn't tell me enough, and it gets rid of 2 extra spaces.
