Lists

More on help with lists at Meta-Wiki.

There are different kinds of lists.

Bulleted

Use * to start each line. Different numbers of *s give different levels of nesting.

Markup Gives on the page:
*item
*item
**item
**item
*item
**item
***item
*item
  • item
  • item
    • item
    • item
  • item
    • item
      • item
  • item

Numbered

Use # to start each line. Different numbers of #s give different levels of nesting. Note that this does not give outline numbering, as in the table of contents boxes.

Markup Gives on the page:
#item
#item
##item
##item
#item
##item
###item
#item
  1. item
  2. item
    1. item
    2. item

    1. item
      1. item

:**Item 2.1
:*Item 3

  • Item 2
    • Item 2.1
  • Item 3

##Item 1.1
##Item 1.2
#:and then item 1 continues 
#Item 2

##*2.1.1
##*2.1.2
##:before it continues 
##Item 2.2
  1. Item 1 has an embedded numbered list
    1. Item 1.1
    2. Item 1.2
    and then item 1 continues
  2. Item 2
    1. Item 2.1 has an embedded bulleted list
      • 2.1.1
      • 2.1.2
      before it continues
    2. Item 2.2

Some of the more complex list types don't render particularly well, and should probably be avoided.
