[resolved] Help with formatting output (3 posts)

    Thank you for your work on this plugin, it is excellent.

    I am hopeful you can assist me in one area I am struggling with. I am using your plugin to generate a listing of posts as follows:

    '[display-posts category="A" tag="B" posts_per_page="3"]'

    The output generated is:

    This is post title 1 from category A which includes tag B
    This is post title 2 from category A which includes tag B
    This is post title 3 from category A which includes tag B

    What I would like the output to have is preceding bullets before each post title. How can I accomplish this? I have read your documentation and noted you indicate that by using display_posts_shortcode_output you can customizing the output of individual posts. However, I don't know where do place the code you have shown as an example http://www.billerickson.net/code/display-posts-shortcode-full-content/.

    Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Can you post a link to your site?

    The plugin outputs an unordered list (bulleted list) by default, so my guess is your theme has simply removed the bullets. With some CSS changes you should be able to get them back.

    Now if you wanted them an ordered (numbered) list or no bullets/numbers, then you could use the outer markup parameter to change it. [display-posts wrapper="ol"] or [display-posts wrapper="div"]

    The website is http://www.lasvegasdealsdeals.com I am using the Elle Child Theme from the StudioPress Genesis Framework family.

    In looking for an alternative I found this plugin wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mini-loops which seems to be working.

    Thank you.
