=Style for Part Numbers=
 
 
[[Image:Alert.png]] '''Attention!''' ''This guideline is specific to Part numbering. General rules for appending numbering to a title are found in the
 
[[Style/Recording and release group titles/Series numbers|Series numbers]] guideline.''
 
 
'''When a track is one of a series of identically named tracks with a defined order, separate the [[Part Number]] from the [[Track Title]] by a comma and a space.'''
 
 
'''"TrackTitle, Part 1"'''
 
 
'''"TrackTitle, Part 1: PartName"'''
 
 
This guideline is a specification of the more general [[Style/Recording and release group titles/Series numbers|Series numbers]] guideline. See that page for principles (especially in which cases [[Style/Principle/Artist intent|Artist intent]] overrides this guideline).
 
 
Alternative names for parts may be used, such as Section, or their non-English equivalents.
 
* Note that if the title of a track is just "''Part 1''" or similar then this guideline should not apply, because then "''Part 1''" is considered being the [[Main Title]] of the track and not the [[Part Number]].
 
* Also note that the [[Style/Recording and release group titles/Abbreviations|Abbreviations]] guideline says that you should not use abbreviations in titles. So "Pt." should always be expanded to "Part" (assuming the [[Release Language]] is English).
 
* Also note that the [[Part Name]] must be formatted according to the [[Style/Recording and release group titles/Subtitles|Subtitles]] guideline.
 
 
==Example==
 
 
"''[[Track:36bd10fa-3214-4876-ab75-55b59f31606d|Flares, Part 3]]''"

"''[[Track:d5590ff3-51d4-44db-89c6-0a2372524199|Creepin', Parts 1 & 2]]''" -- Two numbers are noted using an ampersand "&", the part indication in its plural form.
 
 
"''[[Track:fdd06153-56d0-420d-9130-8103723b2989|Train to Lamy Suite, Parts 1-3]]''" -- More than 2 numbers, which are in sequence are separated by a hyphen "-", the part indication in its plural form.
 
 
"'''''This Is a Trackname, Parts 1, 4 & 5'''''" -- More than 2 numbers, which are *not* in sequence are separated by a comma "," and the last one is added with an ampersand "&", the part indication in its plural form.
