Requirements: Movable Type 3.3 or higher

For more information about FormatList, click here.

Previous versions of FormatList will not work with Movable Type 3.3 (or later). The new version (1.2) will only work with MT 3.3 or later.

FormatList adds list buttons to the toolbar, in the MT admin entry screens. For more information, click here.

Note: with this version, I have not updated the button images to reflect the new sizes that are used by MT 3.3, so you may notice a slight difference in size, compared to the new 3.3 toolbar buttons.

New in version 1.1: I fixed a bug that was preventing the list buttons from working in the "Extended Entry" field. The features remain the same, as described below.

FormatList is a plugin for Movable Type that makes it easy to create bulleted or numbered lists when creating or editing entries.

FormatList adds the following two button to the formatting toolbar that appears just above the "Entry Body" and "Extended Entry" fields:

To create a bulleted list:

  • Enter the list of items, hitting enter after each line (you can leave blank lines in between list items if desired)
  • Select (highlight) the list
  • Click the button

To create a numbered list:

  1. Enter the list of items, hitting enter after each line (you can leave blank lines in between list items if desired)
  2. Select (highlight) the list
  3. Click the button

Requirements:

  • BigPAPI Plugin (For convenience, I have included this plugin in the FormatList download) (more about BigPAPI)
  • Movable Type 3.16 and higher (I think....currently tested with MT 3.2 only)

FormatList.zip

Installation Instructions:

  1. Download and expand the zip file
  2. Upload the contents of the 'plugins' folder to the 'plugins' folder of you MT installation (there are two files, FormatList.pl and BigPAPI.pl)
  3. Upload the contents of the' images' folder to the 'images' folder within the 'mt-static' folder. This is the location of the images and docs for MT, for most people it will likely be in '/mt-static/images' (outside your cgi-bin).

I hope others find this as helpful as I do. I created this plugin becuase it was quite tedious to create list manually, and this plugin makes it really quick and easy.

Note: As you would expect, each of the lists above was created using FormatList ;)
