Template Tags and Shortcodes

Template tags are the building blocks of any WordPress theme; as the WordPress codex explains:
Template tags are used within your blog's Templates to display information dynamically or otherwise customize your blog, providing the tools to make it as individual and interesting as you are.
They're an essential part of customizing existing themes and building your own, and Webcomic provides a plethora of new template tags covering everything from basic comic display to generating character clouds. Each of the template tags listed here include an explanation of what it does, how it works, and a couple of examples showing how you might use it. Template tags marked in bold have a shortcode equivalent.
These tags are useful when you need to get into some of the finer details of Webcomic's configuration and settings for more advanced functions.
Much like WordPress' own condition tags, Webcomic's conditional tags are useful for altering what content is displayed and how that content is displayed based on various conditions.
