    Lists have always been some kind of edge cases because the individual items consists of only [*] without an ending tag. As such their proper recognition was always challenging and error prone, primarily caused by the fact that the parser must "guess" where each item ends. In certain scenarios complex bbcodes such as quotes or spoilers manage to break the entire list causing both a messed up layout and invalid HTML.


    Working around the aforementioned issues requires some major changes to the way lists are handled, therefore we've decided to disallow some complex bbcodes to be used inside lists to avoid the observed behavior.
