Overview

The List Type User Item modifies the appearance and structure of a list in a Content Chapter.

Lists are created when users add Links or Person Links to the chapter. List Type User Items are optional.

  • If a List Type User Item precedes a sequence of User Items that are rendered in a list, Gedcom Publisher 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, Gedcom Publisher 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 in the same chapter, 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.

Clear

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

List Type

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

An Unordered List is not numbered. An Ordered List is numbered. For both Unordered Lists and Ordered Lists, Gedcom Publisher 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 Gedcom Publisher lists, the User Item title is the term, and the User Item description is the description.

Example of definition list:

A Title
A description
Another Title
Another description

If you choose Div Blocks, each item will be rendered with an HTML DIV element. Gedcom Publisher concatenates the title and the description of a User Item to make the element content.
