    For whatever reason, I cannot get the numbering system right on Hubpages. When I want to do 10 points on something and I want to put them in different text boxes, the numbering system goes back to number one.

    I've just written this. … -to-Chrome

    Please tell me how I can fix the numbering system.

    Many thanks. smile

      I don't know the answer. I would manually change #s 5 through 10.

      I did want to point out though that you have one capsule in twice, about Google Chrome having bugs, so you have 15 numbers instead of 10.  This might just be because you were working on the hub right now, so probably not a real problem, but I did want you to be aware in case..

        Thanks. In the middle of doing the hub, I lost it and did it again. Obviously Murphy has a sense of humour. sad Corrected it now.
        I have tried to change it manually, but it doesn't block. So I'll have to go through the entire lot and not care if it doesn't invert. sad

      I don't guarantee that either will work on HP, but here are two ways (you'll have to edit in HTML):
      <ol start="6"> then continue as normal
      <ol> <li value="6">stuff goes here </li>

        Hubpages allows me to meddle with the code? Where, how?

          When in the text capsule edit mode look at the far left of the header menu for 'html'.
