Widgets on Pages
[resolved] Bullet won't go away (29 posts)

    widgets-on-pages is exactly what I needed for my site. Thanks for creating and sharing a simple but very effective plugin.

    I'm using 0.0.11 and I have selected "Enable styling' by checking the box. The bullet is still present on the widget.

    Does some file need to be writable for this change to be accepted?

    Thanks.

    Hey webthisway,

    What you need is the following in your case. This is just down to the very explicit settings in your theme.

    #content .page .widgets_on_page ul li {list-style:none;background:none;}

    Remember if you like the widget and/or the support you get here then a nice 5* rating of the plugin would be nice ;-)

    Ta,
    Todd

    Hi Todd,
    Thanks for the help with the fix. That did just what I needed. I'm confused as to why it was necessary and I have a very similar site that did not require that code to be added to the style sheet.

    Thanks again. I did rate the plugin. From your previous replys I knew you would be here to help.

    Great news.

    As for the other site not needing this it's all down to how explicit the CSS selectors are in the themes's style.css file as to whether or not the fairly generic ones I've defined in the plugin are able to override them.

    Hello!

    After reading every single thread in this forum related to Widgets on Pages (LOVE IT, by the way. Thank you!) and trying every bit of code to remove the tenacious bullet, it just won't go.

    These are the three pages where I'm using Widgets on Pages. Any ideas how to make that little bugger disappear for good?

    I'm using the Manifest theme (1.01-wpcom).

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    Ooooh... you were so close ;-)

    Just try this at the end of the style.css in place of what you already have.

    #core-content .widgets_on_page ul li {list-style:none;}

    Remember if you like the widget and/or the support you get here then a nice 5* rating of the plugin would be nice ;-)

    Thanks so much! But, darn it! Just tried and still no dice! Those bullets are trying to kill me. Any other solutions?

    And a 5 rating regardless of this silly bullet! Great plug-in - thanks so much!

    I don't see the bullets anymore... can you try refreshing a couple of times to make sure your browser brings down the new CSS?

    Lordy, I had to literally shut down, re-boot, re-install IE, re-boot again and then the cache cleared (what the heck?) so I could see the change - and now the dot is back but it's a broswer issue I'm being told by our IT department (huh?) - I'm at work on a PC instead of home on a Mac - loads of fun...

    So, instead I looked at it on my Droid...AND, you have fixed the bullet. It is no more. I am eternally grateful! Accolades! Cookies! Party streamers! Cheers!

    THANK YOU :)

    Great plugin, thank you! 5* when my problem is solved ;)

    I have a similar problem, but I only want to remove the first bullet in the list.

    I've inserted the "Custom Menu Widget" in the "Widgets on Pages" in the widget menu. Somehow I can't remove the first bullet.

    Any solution?

    Hey Optimator,

    Glad you found a way to style them as you wanted... and thanks for the 5* rating ;-)

    Hey spraguex,

    Thanks for the CSS link.

    Seems like you want to be overwriting line 2672... perhaps something like this might work for you?

    #wrapper .widgets_on_page ul li {list-style:none;background:none;}

    Can you give this a try and let me know how you get on? If it doesn't work then a link to a live site would be really useful.

    Ta,
    Todd

    Ahh shoot sorry about that, I meant to send the live link. The code you sent worked great but now bullets won't work for anything else... Here is the link to the one that works (sharing is caring)http://spraguefarm.com/portfolio/red-spotted-newt/#.UAxvwLSe7zI

    and here is a test page with no bullets in place where there should be.

    Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate your time :)

    Oh... sorry I wasn't very clear.
    When I said overwriting I didn't mean actually overwriting but I meant over-riding.... i.e. you want to keep line 2672 as it was but then add the extra CSS to the bottom of you style.css.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    That's super news!

    I do indeed... you can donate here... though it would be just as ace if you could rate the plugin over at the WordPress.org Widgets on Pages page aswell/instead of.

    Hey

    Well this was a good one ;-)

    What you need is something like this on the end of your style.css

    .widgets_on_page ul, .widgets_on_page ul li:before {content:"";}

    Hi, Gotta also say, great plugin. Makes designing for a novice much easier.

    Same problem. I've tried the different suggestions you've already posted. But no luck. Here's my page link:

    Hey there jjmacg,

    I'm not able to see any issue with that page... in fact I can't see that you're using Widgets on Pages either. Are you sure this is the right link?

    Hi, thanks for responding. I'm good now. I actually redesigned and not currently using the pluggin. But it is great and I hope to use it again in the future.

    Same problem, using Striking theme. I've tried the custom css modifications above, and the bullet is still there. also have an issue with the widget staying full-width.

    I found the solution on an older website.

    adding this line to css fixed it:

    div.widgets_on_page li { list-style:none; background:none; }
