Formatting Glitch?
By: / Novice
Post # 1

I'm having a format problem on my profile. This is either a glitch, or I'm doing something wrong.

In HTML format, there's the option to have bullet points, which is what I would like to have. If you check my profile you can see that the bullet points are not there. I have tried deleting the content, re-typing, and adding the bullet points. When I do that, everything becomes bunched together. So, I had to make a new paragraph between each point to avoid that problem.

No matter what I do I can't seem to get the bullet points to appear. I've never had this issue before which makes me think this is a new glitch.

I don't know if I'm the only one having this problem, but I hope it's an easy fix.

If your problem were to continue, then you could have Petrarca the site administrator look into the issue

If I type the code here, it will be converted to the format itself that I defined the structure to be. So change "|" to "" whatever is proper.

Remember "li" is used to make an entry its own entity. If you are creating a list make sure each item has a closing "li".

If you are using "Unordered List" or "ul" you will only be given 3 options for the style of the bullet, and you will have to declare the type of style to be used. Your options are:
1. Circle: Unfilled Circle
2. Disk: Filled Circle
3. Square: Filled Square

Example:
|ul type = "disk"|
|li| List 1 |/li|
|li| List 2 |/li|
|/ul|

If you want the list to be in order, use "ol" short for Ordered List. You have more bullet style option to choose from when you use this, including: Numbers, Alphabets, even Numbers in reverse. So long as you declare the type of style.

Alphabets & Numbers will be:
|ol type = "A or 1"|
text here
|/ol|

If you want the Bullet type to be in Bullets, that is called: Multi-Level Bullet List.

|ul|
|li| Main List 1 |/li|
|ul|
|li| Sub List of Main List 1 |/li|
|/ul|
|li| Main List 2 |/li|
|/ul|

So, which one are you using? I typing the code manually. If it still does not work, have any admin notified. Like Petrarca.

I did not try typing in the code manually, as I'm not good with coding in the first place. All I did was highlight the section I wanted and selected "Insert/Remove Bullet List"

When I edit my profile I can see the bullets, but on my bio the bullets disappear.

I will play around with it some more to see if I can fix it, but if not, I'll let Pet know.

Yes, I was able to fix it. I was going to post an update here but you beat me to it.

I do not know what caused the problem originally, but at least it's fixed now.
