How this plugin was born

I work with WordPress theme Twenty Fifteen or Twenty Sixteen. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to indent lists. The regular indent-button was greyed out after selecting the bulletlist. So as a workaround I used manually dashes for my lists. But I wasn’t happy with it.

I asked Klaas van der Linden, a friend of my, to come up with a way to make this work. He did a good job! He developed the Indent Lists Button plugin. Now I’m happy to use my favorite, and SEO friendly, bulletlist again. In return, I offered him to host this plugin page on my site and helped him with the readme.txt.


  1. Upload the entire indent-lists-button zipfolder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
  3. Open a page and check if a new button has appeared in the editor-bar. The new button should be located right on top row.

How to use this plugin

Select the bulletlist you want to indent for a neath alignment. Push the indent-lists-button and your lists wil indent. See screenshots below for details.
