Changing Bullet style in one, not all widgets
 
While I see the way to change the overall bullet treatment for widgets (described here: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=663), I can't figure out how to keep the overall, but change one text widget to contain an unordered list with just straight bullets or even better, to mimic the link background in lists, but without the whole list item being a link. I can't get bullets to show at all right now.

Here's the site (the left sidebar is perfect as is; I want the right sidebar's News Highlights section to have bulleted items.) http://accny.vireo.org/?page_id=91

Thanks, this is an amazing theme.

using Atahualpa 3.1.8

To do something for a specific widget only, look into the source code to find out the ID of that widget, then add a CSS Insert

div#id-of-widget li {
...
}

Thanks for the response. I tried that and did not see the change, but my code may be off. Here's the source:
<div id="text-344673561" class="widget widget_text"> <div class="widget-title"><h3>News Highlights</h3></div><div class="widget-content"> <div class="textwidget"><ul>
Here's what I added in the CSS insert box:

div.text-344673561 li {type="square"
}
and I tried

div.text-344673561 ul li {type="square"
}

For ID's use #, the dot is for classes only

div#text-344673561 li {
list-style-type: square;
}

Thank you for your patience, which is evident throughout the site. The code you suggested didn't do anything. I assume it's how I'm placing it. Here is the entire content of my CSS insert box with the bullet code as I think you gave it on the bottom:

div.post-bodycopy h4 {
color: #004071;
font-size: 1.25em;
font-family: helvetica, sans-serif;
}
div.post-bodycopy h5 {
color: #004071;
font-size: 1.15em;
font-family: helvetica, sans-serif;
}
div#text-344673561 li {
list-style-type: square;
}

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance for your reply.

did you try this with ul instead of li?

like this:
div#text-344673561 ul {
list-style-type: square;
}

Thanks, Bill, but that isn't doing it either.:confused:
