How to break up a list of numbers.

    I am working on a list of things about me and my blog for a stand-alone page.

    I want to make it a numbered list with a photo or two part way down. The numbered list works fine above the photo, but below, the list starts back at 1 again.

    How do you ensure that the numbers keep counting after the photo?

    I would do the entire list, copy the code, then put the code for the image in the middle. Hopefully it’ll hold when you hit Publish.

    There’s a trick I’m using for this. You need to look at it in code view and be familiar with the markup of a list

    <ol> /*begins the Ordered List*/
    <li>this is pint one</li>
    <li>this is point two</li>
    </ol>
    <img src="image.jpg" /> /*Your image*/
    <ol start="3">/*begins a new list with point three*/
    <li>this is point three</li>
    </ol>

    Oooh, that’s the smart way of doing what I was hoping would work otherwise. Thanks.

    I had the problem of a messed up list when I wrote my Google Maps tutorial. Then I remembered that I had read about a solution before.
