The {{join}} template joins strings with a specified separator. If the separator is not specified, the strings will be separated by a comma and a space.


Parameter Description
sep The separator to insert between the strings being joined. The default is a comma and a space (,{{space}}). Because of MediaWiki parser antics, leading and trailing spaces should be specified as {{space}}; leading colons and semicolons should be specified as {{colon}} and {{;}}, respectively.
penult The separator to use immediately before the last string when at least two strings are being joined. If penult is not specified, then sep is used.
two-sep The separator to use when exactly two strings are being joined. This overrules penult in this case. If two-sep is not specified, then penult is used; if penult is also not specified, then sep is used.
