Ordered and un-ordered lists are a very common way of presenting information. To add a list to an article.

  1. Open the article for editing either by:
    • Opening the Article Manager, selecting the article and clicking the Edit toolbar button or,
    • Clicking the Add New Article button in the Control Panel.
  2. With the cursor locate the position in the article where you want to insert a list.
  3. Choose either the Ordered list or Unordered list editor toolbar button.
    • The default ordered list begins with the numeral 1. and the unordered list starts with a bullet point.
  4. Type enter to create a new line and number/bullet.
  5. Type enter twice to finish the list or start a new line and click the Ordered List or Unordered List editor toolbar button.

Note the following:

  • Change the list type part way through by clicking the alternate button.
  • If you create a new ordered list later in your article the numbering will restart from 1.
  • Use the Indent and Outdent editor toolbar buttons to create child lists. You may change the type of the child list by clicking the alternate button.
