    Hi guys,

    Appearing on my sidebar, not sure why and totally uninvited, an ugly bullet point.

    I searched my style.css, sidebar.php files
    but wasn’t able to find any mention for a bullet point.

    Any suggestions, how I can get ride of this ugly bullet point?

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you have a link?

    It's probably an empty list item. Sometimes, if you have an unordered list, and the last item is empty, it puts in a bullet point.

    If you send me the link, I'll be able to help you better ;)

    It would look like this:

    <li></li>

    But quite a few of these list items are generated automatically by WordPress; if that's the case, you woun't be able to find it in any of the theme files. It's probably temporary -- perhaps you have a post without a title?

    Something was missing from your CSS:

    .pagenav { list-style: none; }

    Add that to it (probably somewhere near the sidebar rules) and the bullet will disappear like magic :)

    It's not gone, it's just been put at the end of the page. Internet Explorer does things like that from time to time, bless its heart ;)

    I would guess that this is because your post "this is my 8 post" has some content which breaks out of the content area.

    Welcome to the exciting world of cross-platform compatibility!

    Incidentally, in that post were you trying to insert some actual javascript, or did you mean to actually display some source code to readers?

    thx maerk.
    deleted the post and it looks better in IE
    not great but better.

    The code you saw was me struggling :( with inserting a
    link that will open a pop-up window.

    any suggestions on how to do it in Word Press?

    You should be able to insert any tag you like into posts. Did you just put the script tags in direct? That should work fine, but WordPress might do something funny with script tags.

    Try searching for "inserting javascript into posts", to be honest, I've never done it myself, but I think there are plugins for it.
