Reformat Items with comma

Postby j.zulkeski » Fri Nov 18, 2016 8:28 pm

File names are dash separated.

album-number-last,first-song name.zip

would like:

album-number-first last-song name.zip

However, I do not want to touch items named:

album-number-name,the-song name.zip

Can someone please help me regex this? Pretty sure I have to replace ", the" with something the replace it after the swap, but I rarely use regex so I'm not sure how to format it.
