Method To Produce Nested Lists?

Is there a method to produce nested lists using MMD?

I played around with some experiments but it appears you can only produce one list but no nested lists.

Thanks.

You just need to add a space to the start of each paragraph of the secondary list: and it helps to use a different list character (but I don’t think that is as vital as the space). So the following (with the underscores replaced by spaces, because the forum is swallowing my leading spaces) gives three nested bullet points under the second item of a numbered list:

[code]1. Level one list.

  1. More of level one:

_+ bullet in nested list;

_+ next bullet in nested list;

_+ third bullet in nested list.

  1. Level one again.

  2. And more of level one.[/code]

Thanks.

Just what I needed.

Space can equal Tab, in this context, too. I find that makes this more readable. Ordinarily a prefix tab turns on code blocks, but if it is within a list block, it will either continue the current list item (for multi-paragraph lists) or start a nested list of either bullet or enumerated types.

Why does none of this stuff seem to work?

I tried pasting the code in Gruff’s post above, and it doesn’t do anything re formatting. It just looks exactly like the code.

I saw a post that says you can tel Scriv to “start at” for trying to continue a list - but there’s no command for that ANYWHERE - and it’s not in the manuals or any videos on-line.

WHY doesn’t this supposed “writing tool” do such a simple and necessary writing function as lists, continued lists, and nested lists?

Anyone have any clue how to make a nested list that actually works?

Thanks.

It works fine here; are you sure you’re writing using MultiMarkDown (MMD), as the original poster is?

And also, did you fix the code sample as the poster described? The text in the code box above isn’t valid syntax, this however is:

[code]1. One
2. Two
* First paragraph.

Second paragraph of first bullet.

* Second bullet.
  1. Three

    • First bullet.
      1. Another numbered list.
        • Another bullet.
        • I could keep going.
      2. Yup, looks like Markdown supports nesting all right.
    • It’s a good idea to reference the Markdown website itself for code examples and a tutorial on its usage.
  2. And back to the top.
    [/code]

And to prove that works, here is the same list using a MultiMarkdown to BBCode converter:

  1. One
  2. Two
  • First paragraph.
    Second paragraph of first bullet.
  • Second bullet.
  1. Three
  • First bullet.[list=1][] Another numbered list.
    [list][
    ] Another bullet.
  • I could keep going.
  1. Yup, looks like Markdown supports nesting all right.

Which one do you use (mine doesn’t handle nested lists and I’d like to upgrade 8) )?

I use my own XSLT that I created a while back. It doesn’t work yet with MMD6 though—I haven’t had the time to look into why.

A few notes:

  • You can add an attribution to a quote by double-quoting the name at the bottom:

[code]> This is a the quote text.

username
[/code]

  • Footnotes are supported.

  • Header levels were tuned for the old forum stylesheet, they might need adjustment as I don’t use them often.

  • Definition lists are supported.

  • Inline code spans become Interface Labels.

  • Figure with captions are supported.

  • Basic colours are supported.

Woah, customised XSLT for forum posts, your geek jar just got a few more shiny coins!!! Thanks! 8)
