    portfolio press theme

    Need to put some space in between the menu items on the right side. I know CSS a little, everywhere on the style sheet on i see
    or .navigation i put that padding-bottom line of code in and it didn’t work. I also tried inserting margin-bottom css code too every where i seen
    or .navigation and that didn’t work as well. I need to separate the menu items stretching from the top of the gallery images to the bottom of the gallery images.

  • Use this:

    #menu-sidebar li {margin-bottom: 10px;}
     #menu-sidebar li:last-child {margin-bottom: 0px;}

    This will add a gap between all the list items and the last item will not have the margin.

    This will add it to any list you put in the sidebar. I recommend adding a class and applying this style to that class.

    Hi; Wow thanks for the code, it has worked. Would you know what CSS I would insert to make my menu bulleted?

    Install this Custom CSS Manager plugin and use its section of the dashboard to hold your CSS modifications (including what DoubleDigits recommended).

    Then add this:

    .widget-container ul {
     list-style-type: initial;
     list-style-position: inside;

    You can do this:

    .menu {margin-left: 50px;
    #menu-sidebar {list-style: disc;}

    Since your menu div is sitting flush against the slider you need to give it some left margin so the bullets are visible. This will add plain bullets to the list, to add images is a different method.

    Andrew, list-style-type: initial; isn’t a valid property and by default, the list position, is outside, which is generally what everyone wants. So I wouldn’t recommend the positioning of it inside.

    Thanks guys, I have installed the plug-in. I fiddled around with both of the css you guys gave me thank you.

    Spot on DoubleDigits, excellent advice.
