[closed] Product categories widget not indenting subcategories (6 posts)

    I'm having some trouble with the product categories widget on my new site not displaying bullets or indent for subcategories. I'm new to php, but I can generally see what sort of stuff is going on.

    Looking in the product categories widget's php file, I see the UL and LI tags are all left blank, which if I'm not mistaken are supposed to default to round bullets. I tried forcing them using

    <ul style="list-style-type:disc">

    with no effect.

    Next, I tried looking in the style sheet and I noticed that it says

    ul, ol {margin:0; padding:0; list-style-type:none;}
    ul {list-style-type:none;}
    ol {list-style-type:decimal;}

    I tried changing those styles likewise to disc, but with no change.
    I don't know where else to look or what else to try changing and I could really use some help here.

    Thanks!

    as you are using a commercial theme by themeforest, please contact the theme's seller for support.

    Yes, well. I am new to php, css, html, java, python, perl, etc etc etc. I don't know any programming except to look at stuff and generally understand what it's doing.

    I've posted on the developer's support forum before and it takes generally about 3 days for he or another web developer to respond. I wanted something quicker because I've been struggling with this for quite a while.

    I found the place in the stylesheet that controls the font size and added a padding:4x; for the time being. All I (think) I need to know is where it would work to insert that unordered list style line.

    We do not support commercial themes as you paid for support when you bought the theme. It is not our place to keep theme vendors in business or deprive them of any income that they may derive from support services.

    As I said earlier, I've used their support forum before. And it's slow. Registration there is free, provided you've purchased their theme and I have. The theme's maker is swamped with inquiries on the forum and can't get back to people in any sort of a timely fashion. You'd be doing him a favor.
