ordered list

Postby Pieter » Aug 18, 2007 8:59 am

Chris, I tried to do it using the [list=][/list] and got no numbers, just a bracketed tag. I then tried the HTML equivalent of <ol><li></li></ol> and again got nowhere. HTML and BBCode are both ON.

It's obvious I'm doing something wrong and it's clear I cannot see the forest for the trees. :(

Hi Pieter,

To do an ordered list you have to specify whether you want it to be alphabetical or numbered with:

    for a numbered list or
      for an alphabetical list.

      Then before each ordered item you have to preface it with a bracketed asterisk, then close out the code.

      So it is written like this for a numbered list:

      Code: Select all

      My shopping list:
      [list=1]
      [*] milk
      [*] sugar
      [*] eggs
      [*] flour
      [*] bread
      [/list]



      And it appears like this:

      My shopping list:
      1. milk
      2. sugar
      3. eggs
      4. flour
      5. bread


Hope that helps!

Chris
