    these are alled 'bullets': look for 'li', 'ul li', 'list-style', 'list-style-type' in your style.css

    If you post a link to your actual site it will be very easy to look at it and tell you exactly what to edit.

    try and add this new line to the style.css:
    .sidebar li {list-style-type:none;}

    worked in firefox, not tested in other browsers.

    @ThorHammer:

    please wrap the <li> of your contribution in 'code', it is messing up this page in IE7 ;-)

    For a quick solution to take out any bullets in the sidebar add this to your style.css with the other sidebar rules:

    .sidebar li {
    list-style: none;
    }

    Edit: alchymyth beat me to it :o) How's that for service?

    @ThorHammer:
    never mind - in my IE7, since your post, the design is totally messsed - and I assumed that you typed the <li> direct into the text, without 'escaping' it with the code button.
    IE seems to be unable to catch itself after this - firefox is fine.

    see what i mean ? screenshot http://yfrog.com/0nlistsj

    @alexfriesen:
    this refers to this forum, and the buttons above the text editor field here: when you post some php or html code, you need to use the 'code' button - other wise the code will interfere with the html of the forum, and the code will not get displayed properly.
