# Code indentation not working after a list

Indented code does not display properly after a list item (bulleted or numbered). Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

(*some good code here*)
f[x]=1


A list:

• one
• two
• three

(some good code here) f[x]=1

After a normal paragraph, everything is OK.

(*some good code here*)
f[x]=1


(I'm using win7 and Chrome)

It works, but you need to add some extra spaces. It needs to be indented twice, to distinguish between a new paragraph within a single list item and actual code.

### Example MarkDown

 * one

* two

two continued

code


### The above, formatted

• one

• two

two continued

code

• @Ajasja Don't delete it, I'm sure there are other people who are confused. I was confused about this as well, and you got 2 upvotes in less than an hour. We can retag it from 'bug' to 'markdown' and 'support' (I'll do that, adjust if necessary) – Szabolcs May 4 '12 at 13:43
• I would have never guessed such a solution, thanks Szabolcs! – István Zachar Sep 28 '12 at 9:28

Szabolcs' answer works if you want to make the code part of the indented list. If you don't want to make it part of the indented list, a simple comment can be used to stop it. Example Markdown:

* point 1
* point 2

point 2 continued

(*this code is part of point 2.*)

point 2 continued

<!-- this comment serves only to stop point 2 -->

(*This code no longer belongs to point 2.*)


This gives:

• point 1
• point 2

point 2 continued

(*this code is part of point 2.*)


point 2 continued

(*This code no longer belongs to point 2.*)


As you can see, the comment, while not being rendered itself, takes the function of stopping point 2.

• How come that in the first example, the <!-- ... --> comment is visible? They are hidden only when quoted? – István Zachar Oct 3 '12 at 13:55
• @IstvánZachar: Because in the first example, it is part of the code block, and thus not interpreted but displayed literally. – celtschk Oct 3 '12 at 14:16
• Oh, yes, that makes sense. Of course. Silly me. Thanks! – István Zachar Oct 3 '12 at 14:19
