How to add bulleted list items within blog posts


#1

I know how to add bulleted lists within the regular designer, but I don't see a way to create lists within the CMS. Is this possible, and if so how?


#2

I have been told by the Webflow team that this feature is in the works but is not available at this time. However, you can add bullets to rich text by copying and pasting them from another document.


#3

Really, ok well that's good enough then. I pasted from plain text, I'll give it a try from Google Docs. Is there a specific app you copy/paste from?


#4

I apologize, apparently this is not possible. I was told that it was possible but I just tried and it doesn't work @thesergie can you weigh in?


#5

We're currently working on bulleted and numbered lists in the CMS. For now you can copy paste the bullet symbol • at the start of the paragraph for now.

• This is an example
• Another example
• Fake bulleted list in action!


#6

While we're working on getting this out, I whipped up some quick custom code you can throw in an embed to fake lists.

.list .list-item {
  padding-left: 15px;
}
.list .list-item:before {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0px;
  content: "•";
}

Adjust the spacing as needed.


#7

When I do this, everything rearranges itself into one line. The problem I think is due to Shift>Enter. I don't want each bullet point to be double spaced, so a shift enter pulls the next bullet point back up to the previous line.


#8

It doesn't seem to be working. Here is the post to use as an example: http://creditsvision.webflow.io/posts/an-introduction-to-private-blockchains

Any idea when bullet / numbered lists will be available in the CMS? Eager for this addition. Keep up the great work!
