How to nest code within a list using markdown

  • If there is a list immediately followed by a code block the code block is not recognized as code
  • (Even though there is a newline between the two).

    int answer = 42;

    Note: This happens both in the WMD preview and in the final (server rendered) post.

Inside a bullet list

To place a code block inside a list item, use eight spaces to format the code.

- item 1

        code

- item 2

Result:

  • item 1

    code
    
  • item 2

After a bullet list

To place a code block after a bullet list, add an empty comment between them.

- item 1
- item 2

<!-- -->

    code

Result:

  • item 1
  • item 2
code

Since Markdown doesn't have a way to explicitly end a list, there has to be something to make it start a new section of formatting.

Oh, I think maybe I was answering a different question. Oops. –  mmyers Jul 20 '09 at 19:33
    
I will often just put in a <p/>, on it's own line. –  Brad Gilbert Jul 20 '09 at 20:12
    
IMO, A better solution is to just indent by 8 spaces instead of 4 –  user133440 Jun 12 '11 at 19:38
