Creating lists in WordPress can take a lot of time.
You have to know basic HTML and use a tags throughout your text editor to get it right. Even if you use the visual editor, adding lists can damage the formatting you've worked so hard to maintain!
Here are some beautiful WordPress plugins that will help you build lists without having to use a line of code.

1. Nested Ordered Lists
When ordered lists are nested, by default each level will have the same style of numbering, but the Nested Ordered Lists plugin allows lists nested up to three levels deep to have different styles of number identifiers.
These list styles are also reflected in the visual editor, and to help visualize the nesting hierarchy of ordered lists in the visual editor, a subtle border is shown around lists.
