Hello,

I am working with a Wordpress theme. Ifn their ul/li they use an out of proportion arrow bullet. In order to make sure any change I make will not be overwritten by the next update, I am trying to reclass ul/li. Currently, I have been able to turn of the oversized bullets in my sample, but I have been unable to get a standards bullet like circle or square to display in my ul/li case. This is a small sample that exhibits the problem. I am pretty new to CSS/html, so any insight would be appreciated.

BTW, the div inclusion is set up to match what I see in their html file.

<title>test</title>
<style type="text/css">
  <!--Theme's ul/li style. -->
  <!--Note: I do not include the graphic for this sample. Running without it, standards bullets will displace for both samples-->
  .entry ul { list-style-type:none;margin: 0 0 15px 15px;padding:0;}
  .entry ul li {list-style-type:none;margin: 0 0 5px; padding: 0 0 0 18px;background: url(arrow_next.gif) 0 1px no-repeat;}
  <!-- My Reclassing -->
  .entry ul.myul {list-style-type:square;margin:0;padding:0;}
  .entry ul li.myli {background: none;list-style-type:square;}
</style>
</head>

Solved:Question about overriding a graphic bullet in a ul/li blo

Since I had the list-style-position: outside, the bullets nicely "hid" to left. "invisibly".
