ordered list feature not working?

Postby FioranoCars » Sat Nov 19, 2016 1:00 pm

Hi
the ordered list button "List=" and "[*]" button are not working as expected in composing posts

The "List=" does not number or do anything, even if you add a value to the "=" part, like 'n' or '1' etc
[list=]1
2
3[/list]

The "[*]" fails to auto insert the closing tags, and manual closing tags don't work!
[*]1
2
3
[/*]

thanks
Richard

Hi Richard,

I've just been looking at unanswered posts, and came across this one. Not sure how it got missed and I apologise for the lack of response!

To use the list function is a two stage process using a couple of the buttons. Not ideal but until the forum software is updated, this is how you do lists, for now:

For bullets: click the [ list ] button, and for each item you enter you must press the [ * ] before it.

Similarly for numbered, alpha, or Roman lists you can click the [ List= ] button. Entering an "A", "1", or "i" after the equals, and again for each item you must enter the [ * ] before it, and you will get the list. Examples below:

Code: Select all

[list]
[*]Mark
[*]Paul
[*]Peter
[*]Sam[/list]

[list=1]
[*]Mark
[*]Paul
[*]Peter
[*]Sam[/list]

[list=a]
[*]Mark
[*]Paul
[*]Peter
[*]Sam[/list]

[list=i]
[*]Mark
[*]Paul
[*]Peter
[*]Sam[/list]



The above will return:

  • Mark
  • Paul
  • Peter
  • Sam

  1. Mark
  2. Paul
  3. Peter
  4. Sam

  1. Mark
  2. Paul
  3. Peter
  4. Sam

  1. Mark
  2. Paul
  3. Peter
  4. Sam

Hope this helps, and again I apologise for the length of time it has taken,

Hi Mike
Thanks, great news, but any chance of updating the tool tip when you hover over the button above the edit box?
Would make it much less likely I'll forget by the time I need to do this again, which sadly due to infrequent use of the list feature is most likely :shock: :shock:

Thanks for the follow up.

I'll investigate this, but not sure it is something we can update. If we can, we will :mrgreen:
