Support » Fixing WordPress » Help! I’ve installed but I have two issues…

  • I have recently converted from Movabletype to WordPress and am fully impressed. I am having two issues that I cannot figure out… You can see my problems located at my website @ and let me point them out — the menu items (recent comments, links, categories) list bullets and users cannot register.
    Firstly registration, because it’s the most important. shows that User registration is currently not allowed, however in my option I have enabled it. I dont know whats the deal!
    Secondly the CSS formatting with the bullets, I have edited my wp-layout.css and removed the menu css stuff just to see what it’s doing, it still shows the bullets. How do I remove them?
    Please help, these are minor issues but this has really made my site in operable.
    Much appreciated.

  • The bullet thing is an issue for me as well. I do admit that I’ve been to lazy to actually take a longer look at the code. :p

    1. User registration is enabled by logging in, going to the general options. The option for registration is in the membership section.
    2. You’ll need to add this to any object identifier or class to remove the bullets: list-style-type: none;

    I have completely removed the CSS tags for the ul/ol/li and yet i still get indents, numbers, and bullets. there is nothing ot comment out the list-style-type basically.

    damn wiki is not working (again!)
    it has instructions on removing them…

    Well, the way CSS works is that if you don’t specify something in the style sheet, it will use the default. By default, the ol tag uses bullets. In order to change it, you have to add the ol tag to the style sheet and then use the list-style-type: none; attribute. Once you do this, you should be able to change the behavior so that it doesn’t display the bullets.

    Your menu items are controlled by one of several tags:
    #menu ul
    #menu ul ul
    #menu ul li
    #menu ul ul li
    If a style type is not defined, then your browser will default to showing a black circle(bullet, disc) next to each item in a menu. If you define the style you want, you can remove the disc.
    Do this by including this in the CSS declaration for the items that you want not to have the black circle;
    list-style: none;
    For instance, to remove the black circle from an unordered list element:
    #menu li {
    list-style: none;

    Whenever anyone uses the wp-register.php file the result is this message: “Registration currently disabled” and “User registration is currently not allowed.”

    I’ve searched the admin area and the online documentation in vain trying to discover how to enable registration.

    How is this done, and why was it disabled to begin with?

    I found the problem. After selecting “Anyone can register” in the Membership section under General Options, my options didn’t update (I missed the Update button at the bottom of the screen, which can only be seen when the screen is scrolled all the way to the bottom).

    On the list thing – the default with no CSS is to out in those round dot thingys as has been pointed out. But it will also indent. Best set margin and padding to zero and start again. 🙂

    Have a look in the Codex:

    The default <?php wp_register(); ?> is meant to have a <li>, so just use the <?php wp_register('', ''); ?> instead.
