Support » Themes and Templates » Double Arrow (») bullets

  • Resolved boba899


    I’m trying to incorporate these bullets in to a theme of my own, but I cannot find the code any where in the default theme. Sidebar.php has nothing (no » at all), and nothing in the css. How is it done?

    Look for & #187 (without the space between & and #).

    Only three instances, all next to the word comment, so no.

    Stumped on this one :/

    If you’re trying to use » as a list bullet, the only way to do this cross-browser is to create a graphic, upload the graphic to the theme’s images folder and then use:

    #sidebar li {list-style-image:url(images/name_of_file)

    in your CSS.

    You could also try using the pseudo-class content:before to achieve a similar effect in some browsers (e.g. Firefox):

    #sidebar li {list-style:none;}
    #sidebar li:before {content:"& #187;"}

    [again – remove the space between & and #]

    but it won’t work in IE.

    Ah yes, that works quite well indeed. Using that then, thanks for the tip!

    Where the heck does wordpress have the double arrow for listed items in it’s default theme. It isn’t a style – it’s nowhere in the style.css. Can someone help??

    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    	content: "0BB 020";

    comment: the editor here is killing the real style –
    forget the line with ‘content’, it is actually ‘backslash zero zero B B’ and ‘backslash zero zero two zero’ – but it is corrupted here; look for ‘.entry ul li:before, ….’
