How To Add Bullet Points & Numbered Lists In WordPress

Most of the visitors scan the content rather than read the whole content.

So if you want to highlight something or show some summaries, using bullet points or numbered list is the most effective way.

People tend to check bullet points more often than other types of content.

If you’re using the new WordPress Block Editor, you’re in luck. It’s very easy to add bullet points and numbered lists in the Block editor.

Let’s check then. 

How To Add Bullet Points & Numbered Lists

Once you’re in the WordPress post editor, just click on the plus (+) sign and search for ‘List’. Then enter the ‘List Block’.

Alternatively, you can type a slash (/) and ‘list’ to enter the block.

Once you enter the block, you’ll see only one item. You can add more items by tapping on the ‘Enter’ key of your keyboard.

If you want to show the numbered list, just click on the ‘Convert to ordered list’.

The list block comes with some properties and options.

These options are: 

  • Change block type
  • Bullet (unordered list)
  • Numbers (ordered list)
  • Indent
  • Outdent
  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Strikethrough
  • Hyperlink
  • More Options

You can customize the color and typography of your list from the right-hand side options panel.

That’s all about adding bullet points and numbered lists in WordPress.

How To Add Advanced & Stylish Bullet Points

Now if you want to add more advanced bullet points, you can use the Ultimate Blocks plugin.

Ultimate Blocks lets you add advanced and stylish bullet points by using the ‘Styled List‘ block.

Once you’ve installed the plugin, go to your post editor and click on the ‘+’ icon to add a new block. Then search for ‘Styled List’ and insert the block.

You can choose any icon for your styled list from the block options panel. You can also choose icon color, icon size, item spacing, and add additional CSS properties to your list. 

Your list won’t look like before it used to look. You have options, now go, customize and give any look to your list you want. 


I hope now you will be able to add bullet points & numbered lists on your own.

  1. Hello, is there a way to control the numbering in an ordered list? For instance, if I wanted to start with a number other than 1. (or do I have to use a classic block or some HTML just for that).
