Tutorial: lists

Post by HansV »

It is not intuitively clear how the List= button above the edit area works.

Although the BBCode Guide provides some examples, it is incomplete. Here are some examples of the lists you can create with the list and list= tags.

Unordered list:

[list]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  • This
  • That
  • Other
Standard numbered list:

[list=1]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  1. This
  2. That
  3. Other
Lower case Roman numbering:

[list=i]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  1. This
  2. That
  3. Other
Upper case Roman numbering:

[list=I]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  1. This
  2. That
  3. Other
Lower case letters:

[list=a]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  1. This
  2. That
  3. Other
Upper case letters:

[list=A]
[*]This
[*]That
[*]Other
[/list]

results in
  1. This
  2. That
  3. Other

To create multi-level lists, you can nest one lists definitions into another, as shown in the following examples:

[list]
[*]Main Bullet Point
[list]
[*]Sub Bullet Point 1
[*]Sub Bullet Point 2[/list][/list]

results in
  • Main Bullet Point
    • Sub Bullet Point 1
    • Sub Bullet Point 2
[list=1]
[*]Main Numbered Point
[list=a]
[*]Sub Point 1
[list=i]
[*]Sub Sub Point 1
[*]Sub Sub Point 2[/list]
[*]Sub Point 2[/list][/list]

results in
  1. Main Numbered Point
    1. Sub Point 1
      1. Sub Sub Point 1
      2. Sub Sub Point 2
    2. Sub Point 2

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.
