Hello. I'm admin for

I need a template that condenses (for example) "[[Superman (JLU)|Superman]]" to something like "{{JLU|Superman}}". eliminating double-typing.

Can anyone help?  Dchallofjustice  Talk  PR/SS  KR  JLU/DCUC  MH  16:12,8/10/2012  16:12, August 10, 2012 (UTC)

At w:c:dchallofjustice:Template:JLU enter

[[{{{1}}} (JLU)|{{{1}}}]]

Then you can access it as {{JLU|<Superman>}}

A more generalized version could be w:c:dchallofjustice:Template:disambiguated

[[{{{1}}} ({{{2}}})|{{{1}}}]]

Then you could access it as {{disambiguated|<Superman>|<JLU>}}

Many thanks. I appreciate the help.  Dchallofjustice  Talk  PR/SS  KR  JLU/DCUC  MH  17:14,8/22/2012 
There is also the Pipe trick: [[Superman (JLU)|]] automatically produces [[Superman (JLU)|Superman]] when the page is saved. - Tjcool007 (Talk) 15:20, August 24, 2012 (UTC)
