Introduction To Unordered List Design Templates

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to use IBLOCKS plugin to create minimal and clean unordered lists for your blog posts . In this example I’ll provide column based unordered lists and full width unordered lists with stylish images.

Creating Minimal Unordered Lists

Syntax of Minimal Unordered Lists
There are 4 types of predefined minimal unordered lists. You can use min-list ,min-list-bold, min-list-3col or min-list-2col in the type attribute to check these 4 different unordered lists. Your main shortcode will be [list]Your Items [/list]. I have used min_-list in the example given below.

[list type="min_list"]
@item:Item number 1
@item:Item number 2
@item:Item number 3
@item:Item number 4
[/list]

Parameters of Minimal Unordered Lists
