P2 also supports ordered lists which instead of a bullet point are prefaced by a number. To do this place a hash sign (#) in front of your line item. You don’t have to write out the number yourself, it is determined automatically:


Once you hit post, P2 will translate this into a numbered list:


Just like with ordered lists, P2 translates your hash tags into HTML code. This makes editing slightly more complex:


If you’d like to add an item or shuffle the existing ones, just make sure you stay within the OL tags and enclose your line items in LI tags just like with unordered lists.

Note to new Mac Users:

Can’t find the the hash tag (#) on your keyboard? Don’t fear – bring it up with ALT + 3 (also known as OPTION + 3, it’s the key between CTRL and CMD)
