@Hubzilla Development+ What's the reason for allowing only #bbcode text #formatting and not #markdown text formatting in hubzilla? I think there are some reasons. It would be nice to hear them. Since formatting a #list using bbcode is more cumbersome than using markdown. Maybe another solution could also be a symbol in the user interface to transform selected text into a list... Big up to all hubzilla developpers! Great work!
  
In dev branch the markdown feature moved to a plugin. If you are using something prior to 3.1 just enable the markdown feature in /settings/features

You can use markdown if you want. For 3.0.x (e.g. 'master') you can enable it in your features. For future releases (e.g. 'dev') we've moved it to a plugin and the admin would need to install it first.

What is the reason for choosing bbcode first? It's tag based and provides better support for multi-media, and we can ensure the code produced is not executable - which is a *critical* security consideration in a decentralised social environment. Preventing code execution with markdown is incredibly complicated, because the spec permits it.

@Hubzilla Support Forum
Is there a way to make an ordered and an unordered #list in a hubzilla post? Like markdown...
#text formatting
