Using Lists

You can use lists in your markdown article.

Unnumbered lists

To use an unnumbered list (bullet point list), simple begin your list items with a dash - or a star *.

For example:

- This
- is
- a
- simple
- bullet
- point
- list

Gets rendered as:

  • This
  • is
  • a
  • simple
  • bullet
  • point
  • list

Numbered lists

To use a numbered list, simply begin your list items with a number.

1. This
2. is
3. a
4. numbered
5. point
6. list

Gets rendered as:

  1. This
  2. is
  3. a
  4. numbered
  5. point
  6. list

Note that the numbers do not have to be counted up (even though it is easier to read in the non-renderd form):

1. This
1. is
1. also
1. a
1. numbered
1. point
1. list

will also render to a correctly numbered list:

  1. This
  2. is
  3. also
  4. a
  5. numbered
  6. point
  7. list

Some editors even autocorrect this to a correctly numbered list. (So if the example above does no longer start with 1. on each line, please feel free to reintroduce the mistake for illustration purposes.)
