Support » Themes and Templates » Bullets won't show in custom theme – tried several things…

  • I’ve got the most current WP install. This template was purchased off TemplateMonster.

    Created a page with in WP and made a bulleted list in html view:

    <li>Resume Writing and Reconstruction</li>
      <li>Resume Writing and Reconstruction</li>
      <li>Cover letter Creation</li>
      <li>Job Search and Skills Mapping</li>
      <li>Notary Services</li>
      <li>Documentation Preparation</li>
      <li>Military Forms Completion (Security Clearance)</li>
      <li>Document Research and Retrieval ( DD214, Credit Reports, Police Reports)</li>
      <li>International Documentation Preparation</li>
      <li>Electronic Communications Accounts</li>
      <li>Financial Counseling (Banking)</li>

    No bullets at all. No bullets in IE 8 or FF 3.6 (didn’t test other browsers).

    Dug into the CSS. Found the first obvious ul { list-style: none;} tried changing that to ‘circle’. Nothing.

    Tried creating a smilar for ul li, nothing. Tried using the class div that the content text is in .text-box ul li {list-style:disc;}, still no bullets.

    Tried creating a custom class;

    .blah ul li {list-style:disc;}
    <ul class="blah">

    Still no bullets.

    One last attempt I deleted ul { list-style: none;} to see if the other ‘custom’ definitions would work. No bullets.

    The list indents, but no bullets. *sigh*

    I was going to immediately after I created this post, but using the EDIT link under my avatar just rolled me over to the support page, and trying to ‘reply’ to it told me this thread had been closed.

    Right now I’m forcing a bullet by using html inside the text of the li(s).

    Here is all the CSS I found for the DIV (it was farther down the page). I tried changing the .text-box ul li list style to ‘circle’ and it didn’t work. Then I tried deleting the repetitive line .text-box ul li { list-style-image:none; list-style:none;}
    and still didn’t work.

    /*** OL UL style***/

    the proper css is list-style-type {}

    As in… where….

    I took this line .text-box ul li {padding:1px 0px 9px 20px; list-style:circle; font-weight:normal;}

    and changed it to .text-box ul li {padding:1px 0px 9px 20px; list-type:circle; font-weight:normal;}

    it did nothing.

    look at what i wrote carefully please

    and yr syntax is wrong

    its ul.blah li {}
