I have the problem to insert list elements in Mesmerize theme and edit this list after in the theme.
The challenge is to realize some long bullet lists as features.
See picture https://ibb.co/k0bKPhM.
But what i saw is that i must define for every list with different amount of bullets a new shortcoder list.
E.g. for 3, 4, 5, 6, … bullets /list items.
Thsi makes a lot of work.
Can you tell me a way who is more easy?
Can i edit/expand a list who is inserted in a theme?
Like i will create a list with 3 items (bullet list) and then i will expand after inserting in Mesmerize theme to different items?

Thanks for using Shortcoder.
If I had understood the problem correctly, you wanted to add extra items to a list to a shortcode content.
So you can do this the below way suing “custom parameters” or “enclosed shortcode content”.
Below example uses “enclosed shortcode content”
<ul> <li>Item 1</li> <li>Item 2</li> <li>Item 3</li> $$enclosed_content$$ </ul>
Using the shortcode
[sc name="my_list" ] <li>Item 4</li> <li>Item 5</li> [/sc]
Hope this helps.
You can learn more about shortcode parameters and enclosed content below.

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately the solution you described is not possible.
- in Mesmerize theme i cannot write in more as one line in a section content named [shortcoder].
- we cannot create lists with a defined content for every of our list types. This is too unflexible.
- we need a list where we can define a structure but not the content. The content we must be able to edit.
Sorry about that
In this way we cannot using shortcoder.

The shortcode content can be single line too.
Can you please share screenshot of your existing shortcode content and point out what inside that needs to customizeable from outside ?

The shortcoder lists are less problems.
The problem is, the shortcoder lists are not flexible.
We have several lists with different length and different contents.
We cannot create many fixed lists where we cannot edit in a Mesmerize section.
This is not a way we want work.
We awaiting a list with symbolic or representative items where we can insert and change in a section afterwards.
All other things are not flexible enough for us.
We cannot generate a lot of lists who are fix.
The shortcode i tried are:
[su_list icon=”icon: circle”]
[su_list icon=”icon: circle”]

I’m kind of confused on what and where you are using shortcodes. There are lots of ways a shortcode can be used. I do not use Mesmerize theme and I’m now aware of the “section” you are talking about.
My suggestion is like below. Please see screenshots.
Create a shortcode like below
Insert it anywhere in a location which can execute shortcode. Example – posts.

Yes – this is working.
If i create a shortcoder list like:
"<ul>" "$$enclosed_content$$" "</ul>"
and add then in the page:
"[sc name="list3"] <li>Item 1</li> <li>Item 2</li> </sc>]"
this is working.
A section in Mesmerize Theme is a defined area of content in a page with specific style.
Thanks for your help.
