  • Resolved bobmorris60


    I’m getting an unwanted diamond character in the display of links on my blog,

    Look in the right column under “My Activism” and “My Other Sites” and you’ll see the little diamond before the titles. These are appearing because (I think) it’s displaying unordered lists, yet the next one, “Categories”, is displayed the same way and doesn’t display it.

    I’ve tried every code permutation I can think of. Anyone know how to make them go away?

    I’m using ‘get_links_list’ with no parameters. ‘list-style-type: none” appears to be set. Also, IE and Firefox put the diamond in slightly different places.

  • If you view your page source, you’ll see that the headers for “My Activism” and “My Other Sites” are preceded by an <li "linkcat-x"> tag. That’s what’s causing the diamond. The “Categories” header does not have this tag before it.

    Try adding

    #sidebar li {
    list-style-type: none;

    to your css.

    It was already there. So referring back to my trusty “Using CSS with HTML” book, I experimented, and the following worked.

    #linkcat-1 {
    list-style-type: none;

    Oddly this works with linkcat-1 AND linkcat-2. Weird, huh.

    Thx for the help, it got me back into the book one more time.
