Overview

The List Type User Item modifies the appearance and structure of a list on a Page User Item.

Lists are created on a Page when users add Links, Person Links, and Pages to the Page.

Pages often contain lists, but List Type User Items are optional.

  • If a List Type User Item precedes a sequence of User Items that are rendered in a list, GedSite will generate the list according to the List Type User Item's properties.
  • If no List Type User Item precedes a sequence of User Items that are rendered in a list, GedSite will generate an unordered list using the UL HTML element.

A List Type User Item modifies the list that contains the User Items that immediately follow it on the page. After that list ends, any subsequent lists, even on the same page, will be rendered using the default characteristics unless those lists are also preceded by a List Type User Item.

Properties

Title

The Title property identifies the User Item in the User Items list. The Title has no other purpose for this User Item.

Enabled

See Enabled in the Common Properties section of the User Items help page.

Page Section

See Page Section in the Common Properties section of the User Items help page.

List Type

The List Type property determines which HTML elements GedSite uses for the list. The choices are Unordered List (UL), Ordered List (OL), and Definition List (DL). The default is UL.

An Unordered List is not numbered. An Ordered List is numbered. For both Unordered Lists and Ordered Lists, GedSite concatenates the title and the description of a User Item to make a list entry.

Example of unordered list:

  • A Title – A description
  • Another Title – Another description

Example of ordered list:

  1. A Title – A description
  2. Another Title – Another description

List entries in a Definition List consist of two parts: a term and a description. In GedSite lists, the User Item title is the term, and the User Item description is the description. Definition lists are rendered in your browser as follows:

A Title
A description
Another Title
Another description
