Lists

Unordered

You may use any of *, - or + to denote bullets for each list item:

* valid bullet
- valid bullet
+ valid bullet

For example

+ Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
+ Consectetur adipiscing elit
+ Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
- Phasellus iaculis neque
- Ac tristique libero volutpat at
+ Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
+ Eget porttitor lorem

Renders to:

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  • Consectetur adipiscing elit
  • Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
    • Phasellus iaculis neque
    • Ac tristique libero volutpat at
  • Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
  • Eget porttitor lorem

Ordered

An ordered list is done by adding numbers.

1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
2. Consectetur adipiscing elit
3. Integer molestie lorem at massa
4. Eget porttitor lorem
Renders to:

  1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  2. Consectetur adipiscing elit
  3. Integer molestie lorem at massa
  4. Eget porttitor lorem

If you just use 1. for each number, we will automatically number each item.

1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
1. Consectetur adipiscing elit
1. Eget porttitor lorem

Renders to:

  1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  2. Consectetur adipiscing elit
  3. Eget porttitor lorem


Links
