Unordered and Ordered Lists
Even when I have used <ol></ol> I keep getting bullet points as opposed to numbers. Does anyone know why this might be?
There are 2 things that I can think of that would cause the issue. The first, as Ismael Liriano said could be a conflicting style rule. Check your .css for a list-style or list-style-type property, and also check for any rules targeting
li. If that's not the case, be sure that your <ol></ol> tags only have your list items inside. If you have <ul></ul> tags within your ordered list, the unordered list values would have higher priority because they are inside.
<!-- wrong --> <ol> <ul> <li>item1</li> <li>item2</li> </ul> </ol> <!-- right --> <ol> <li>item1</li> <li>item2</li> </ol>
Hi! There might be a CSS rule conflicting with the style of ordered lists.
