Bulleted lists aren't bulleted

Post by spooker »

I'm pretty sure the previous version rendered the bullets properly ... but just had to add a little something when I used this markup today ... when I inspected the elements the "list-style" was "none" ... might want to tweak the stylesheet ;)
  • bullet point 1
  • bullet point 2
  • ordered point 1
  • ordered point 2

  • bullet point 1
  • bullet point 2
  • ordered point 1
  • ordered point 2
For the ordered, you need to add what you want it to use (1 for numbered, a for lettered, A for capped letters) after the "=" in the "list=" code.
So
  1. ordered point 1
  2. ordered point 2
  1. ordered point 1
  2. ordered point 2
  1. ordered point 1
  2. ordered point 2
I haven't figured out how to make it bullet, though.

Thanks for that ... I could've sworn the ordered list defaulted to numbering previously ... but since I've slept since then now I question my memory ... didn't quite use that feature enough

Just tried to use a list this morning and that was a fail ...

Digging into I saw that for both <ol> and <ul> elements the list-style is set to "none"

Possible to fix the stylesheets? My list came out looking like a <quoteblock> just being indented with not spacing between the <li> elements ...

Aha! I couldn't figure out how to do the second indent, but when I quoted you, it showed me what you had done. Thanks!

Yes, the alt-keys work to generate the symbols, but the hanging indent is lost, the line/paragraph spacing is lost

No need to hack anything. Just let me know about issues and I’ll take a look into them during my work hours or on my own time if I’m feeling up to it. I’ll look into this lists issue tomorrow.

Thanks ... wasn't sure why the forum stylesheets were defined with that but you'd be the one to figure it out!

The second indent works fine. Just apply a second "list", as I've done here:

It's easier to see the difference if you quote both in the same post, and compare. Here's my5cents doing that. No need for the [*]

Here's hoping they just reapply the default behaviour so that we don't have to go sharing hacks to make our posts look the way we want ...

IIRC, the default behaviour wasn't working properly in the new version.

Troy made an adjustment at our request so we could use numbering again, as I recall.

The workaround of having to add our own bullet isn't that difficult, IMO.

Bulleted lists should display as expected now:
  • item 1
  • item 2
  • item 3
