Faulty Code Blocks

You need to indent by an additional four spaces for code blocks to be considered so under list item.

  • A single indendation level just makes the block part of the preceding list item. If it were a numbered list, Sathya's screenshot would show two "1." items, as the first block breaks the list (due to missing indentation). Indenting it once would fix that: Broken list, Fixed list.

  • I fixed the first one just using normal backquotes; that's why it is how it is. Thanks for the answer, @Sathya! Feb 7, 2013 at 7:06
