    The orderable list widget uses a comma separated list to separate the items. How then do I add commas to my list items for formatting purposes?

    Asked by wfranklin on July 13, 2015 at 02:07 PM

    I need one of my list items to look like this:

    1.) Promote a Safe, Healthy and Diverse Community in which to Live, Work, Learn and Play


    But when entered as above I get this on the form:

    1.) Promote a Safe

    2.) Healthy and Diverse Community in which to Live

    3.) Work

    4.) Learn and Play


    I've tried HTML markup but it renders a dash instead of a comma.

    I will send a request to our widget team to enable an option to add commas for formatting purposes and not to separate items in the list.

    You will be notified via this thread about any updates on this matter.

    We've updated the widget to accept a line separated configuration. The widget supports a purely comma-separated list, or a purely line-separated list (the latter is recommended) - not both. 

    You can add commas for any of the options without creating a new option if you use the line separated config - 

    Please give it a test - and let us know.
