  • Where are the bullet points supposed to be? Most likely this is caused from css.

    Under “Democrats are to blame for the government shutdown”, each new sentence is supposed to be a bullet. They’re not showing up in any of my posts.

    I figured it was a CSS issue. Do you know what I can add to my child theme so the bullets do show up and overwrite whatever in my theme is causing them not to display?

    Try this in your child theme css:

    .entry li {
    padding-left: 0;
    list-style-type: circle;
    }

    Hi – graphical_force, still no luck and I’ve tried refreshing after clearing my cache as well :/

    Apply a margin-left to your ul:

    ul {
        list-style-type: disc;
        margin-left: 1.5em;
    }

    I don’t see the css change made. Can you try it again and then let us know so we can check it?

    your use of !important is invalid;
    this style seems to work:

    .entry ul {
    padding-left: 20px;
    list-style-type: circle!important;
    }

    Ah, you guys are awesome! It worked, I combined your CSS styles to get the look I wanted (indented, disc). Thank you so much, very helpful!

    I have searched and searched and tried firebug (I had NO CLUE what I was looking for – but didn’t see any ul or ol or li strings anywhere.

    I’ve tried all the different css code tweaks I’ve found. None of them seem to be working. I’ve now got the following in my Custom CSS Styling in Theme Options. Do I have too many? Are they confusing each other?

    Here are two separate posts where I have bullets which are not showing.

    ul {
    list-style: disc;
    padding-left: 20px;
    }

    .type-post ul li {
    list-style-type: disc;
    margin: 0 0 0 30px;
    padding: 0;
    }

    .entry li {
    padding-left: 0;
    list-style-type: circle;
    }

    ul {
    list-style-type: disc;
    margin-left: 1.5em;
    }

    .entry ul {
    padding-left: 20px;
    list-style-type: circle!important;
    }

    Would much appreciate a point in the right direction here!

    @loreen72 – you should be starting a new thread as your site/theme is not identical to the OP – but look for this:

    .votes_sidebar ol, ul {
        color: #000000;
        list-style-type: none;
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
    }

    Sorry – I’ll start a new thread.
