In an attempt to format some questions (especially Minecraft crash questions) using this guide, I have run into a an issue concerning listing mods.

Some users come with games with over 100 mods (like this question) (Update: I attempted an edit on the previously mentioned question, but believe since the list was too long it was rejected or was a major factor for its rejection).

I started to format the list of mods as a bulleted list and boldfacing the version number. For example,

  • CodeChickenCore 0.9.0.9
  • Micdoodlecore 8
  • NotEnoughItems 1.6.1.9

The goal is to make it easier to read the mod name and version used. However this approach does not scale well; it stretches down the page for some atrocious amount of length.

I tried simply blockquoting the list but it does not scroll for many lines.

Bottom Line

Is there a means, through markdown or HTML, for a list to keep its rich format and be scrollable?

Update

I see the difference between blockquoting and preformatting. Blockformatting lacks the ability to scroll through a lot of lines. I have added an example list. I re-worded the question.

  • I don't really understand what you are trying to do. Do you want a bulleted list within a blockquote? If so, that should be perfectly doable with regular markdown, but I'm not sure how it solves the problem of list length. – murgatroid99 Oct 29 '14 at 16:05

    I think you're confusing blockquote with preformatted text. – Unionhawk Oct 29 '14 at 16:06
  • If it is in a blockquote, the bullets and boldfaced text become fixed width and show the hyphens and asterisks. The idea would be to have a fixed window with the list and keeping the bullets and boldface format intact. – ShooShoSha Oct 29 '14 at 16:07
  • Doesn't blockquoting preformat the text? I couldn't find a difference. – ShooShoSha Oct 29 '14 at 16:08
  • Short answer: No. Long answer: Not without using backticks (these fellows: ``) on each item. i.e. CodeChickenCore 0.9.0.9 <-- This is done using backticks around CodeChickenCore and again between the ** and version number (on both sides). – Powerlord Oct 29 '14 at 16:20
  • @Powerlord Would you make that an answer? It seems to be the best one so far. – ShooShoSha Oct 29 '14 at 16:41
  • Also, you don't need to surround every line with backticks. Selecting the list and hitting the '{}' markdown button will have the same effect – Robotnik Oct 29 '14 at 22:22

    Preformatting each line won't achieve any scrolling. You won't get scrolling unless your also give up all other formatting. – murgatroid99 Oct 30 '14 at 6:49
  • @murgatroid99 That's what I was wondering about. It seems the answer is simply it cannot be done. Maybe there's an HTML workaround? – ShooShoSha Oct 30 '14 at 12:51
