Correct Markdown syntax for Ordered List & Suggestions
I can't figure out what the correct Markdown syntax for ordered lists are. Often times when I try, it will collapse and instead of being in nice rows, it will all be one single, paragraph.
Edit: Nevermind, in making this post, I learned the correct syntax:
- Make sure you have [Return] twice to start a new paragraph
- Make sure you have a [space] in between the number and list item
Also, I'm really liking Treehouse's new features. Forums enabled by what badges you've earned is really interesting. Other suggestions:
- Make workspaces shareable (I know you guys are working on it ;) Markdown is incredibly helpful in the forums, but sometimes sharing all of a project's code (especially to lint small details like missing semicolons) can be pretty tedious.
- Preview a way to see what your post will look like before it is published. I edited the same post 4-5 times to try to get the ordered list to work, and in between I had to add backticks to differentiate text all over again.
- A way to go directly to the challenge that someone might be referring to. To help someone in the forums for a specific question, he forgot to mention what exactly the question was asking. It took me 3-4 minutes to go find the exact problem they needed to solve (Library>HTML>CMD+F>Solve a few challenges), but it was still faster than asking and waiting for a response.
Thanks guys! Let me know if I can help by giving more feedback or with general questions.
I'd tried ordered lists in an earlier post and could not get it to work.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong in that but I'd agree with some of your other suggestions. Thanks for posting this.
