Custom List Shortcode

Updated on December 29, 2017

Create an unordered list on your page or post easily with the custom list shortcode. The list items will be marked with bullets (small black circles) by default. You can use an unordered list whenever the order of the items you want to list is unimportant.

To see the Custom List shortcode in action, check out the demo page.

Adding a Viewport Animation

To make the custom list shortcode visible on scroll with animation, there is a setting in the custom list settings pop-up called Viewport Animation. Using this setting is easy and straightforward but if you need a step-by-step tutorial, read the Configuring a shortcode’s entrance animation article.

Adding an Extra Class Name

The Extra Class Name field in the settings pop-up allows you to add an extra class name to the shortcode. It’s useful when you need to target the shortcode in a style sheet or JavaScript file.

You can read the Adding custom CSS class to a shortcode article for further explanation.
