I don't know what is wrong with my indentation but it's not taking this input from me. I get the error:

Your post appears to contain code that is not properly formatted as code. Please indent all code by 4 spaces using the code toolbar button or the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut. For more editing help, click the [?] toolbar icon.

  1. Ordered lists should use numbers (1, 2, 3) not letters (a, b, c)

  2. If you want to indent text the next line after a list item, add two spaces at the end of the list item, then on the next line, add three spaces, then the text, i.e.:

    1. Apple
    2. Banana  
  3. Add a space after >

  4. For file paths instead of putting them as quotes put them as code i.e.

    Instead of




    or use code fences

    Re "add two spaces at the end": Or a space and a backslash. This will avoid problems with tools that remove trailing white space. Commented Apr 4, 2022 at 8:05
