I have made an edit wrt to JR's comment below on simultaneously editing. I tried to add this as a note to a numbered point, with the result that the numbering reset itself. I cannot find how to 'continue* the numbered list, i.e., make the next point number 2, as opposed to starting over again with number 1. Help! Tallong 22:08, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

There doesn't seem to be a good way to restart automated numbering of items after an interruption. Something like the "start numbering at..." option found in some word-processing applications would be very nice. The only other option would involve manual numbering (so 20th century!!!) :-o

I know of two ways to add interrupting paragraphs to a numbered list. Both use the same basic concept: start the interrupting paragraph with # and then add a : (to indent the paragraph) or a * to create a bullet. The code would look like this:

# Entry labeled as 1.

#: indented entry


#* bulleted entry

# Entry labeled as 2.

I revised the numbering on the page to use the second option.

Happy editing, Alison
