Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Outputs each of the parameters separated by commas or, between the first and last, the word " and ", preceded by a comma (this can be changed with the and= parameter). Any number of parameters may be specified.

It is intended for use by other templates to output a suitably formatted list when the number of parameters varies. Named parameters, except for those specified below, are discarded.

White space in parameters is discarded. To include white space, use a character entity reference or numeric character reference.


{{Enum|first|second|third| ... }}

The named parameters are:

after: The text to follow the final item. This might be a semicolon, for example. The default is to have no following text. This is not used if the list is empty (has no items).
and: The text to use where by default " and " is written. This may be overridden if there is a preference for a comma before the "and", or where it makes sense to write it in a language other than English, for example.
comma: The text to use between items except the last and one-before-last. If not specified, the default is ", ".
Any of the named parameters can be set empty; this differs from them not being present (i.e. use the default).


More examples are given in the test cases.
