Markdown: Lists in a list are not properly shown

Issue #7300 resolved

created an issue

I have my '' with some bullets (using *) under an ordered list (using 1. 2. 3.). When I see the Readme in the Overview page, the * are not rendered as a bullet list as expected. I've used to try my README and it works properly there

Also mentioned in the documentation: As you can see.. not even in this ticket works:

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3 * Item 2a

    Hi Rodrigo,

    Bitbucket uses a Python version of Markdown which requires 4 spaces for nested lists. In the documentation you linked to, there is a note below the lists section describing this.

    As an example, nested lists should work as follows:

    1. First
    2. Second
        * Sub-item one
        * Sub-item two
    1. First
    2. Second
      • Sub-item one
      • Sub-item two

    Let us know if you see any other problems.
