I have troubles to use numbered lists in the post editor.

I want to have a numbered list where each number could have few paragraphs inside. Something like

  1. List one

    some text

    paragraph two for list one

  2. List two

    list text for list two

I had troubles to make the numbering continuous so I switched to text version and updated the code so it does what I wanted. Saved and refreshed the post page and saw exactly what I wanted. Then I go back to the post switch to visual and the post is reformatted. For example the ol tag is doubled

<ol style="padding-left: 30px;">
<ol style="padding-left: 30px;">

So the numbering is wrong, wrong indentation etc.

Any idea how I can make this work?


Check out this plugin:


It helps clear up some of the inconsistencies between the two tabs.

  • Well, that fixed the problem buuuuuut I hope there is some other solution available because the visual editor shows something else and 'ugly' compare to the post page that looks as desired. Isn't that strange?
