Just wanted to say Thank You for this thread. This was one of the last items I needed to get my blog to look like my site.

My only problem is how links look when they wrap to a 2nd line due to the size of their title ... especially with post titles. [Which I just fixed by changing the width of each sidebar.]

main site: www.fibromyalgia411.info
blog: www.fibromyalgia411.info/blog/

Paula's suggestion about the left border under edit widgets did the trick, as I was still getting the default bar upon hovering over Recent Posts and Post Archives. That got rid of it.

This really is a super helpful thread. I also have another question/tweak. Can I use this same insert to add image bullets to widget lists that are not links. I have a text box widget with a list of site features that I would like bulleted. The code suggested in this thread only seems to apply to links.
Thanks a ton!

Trying to change widget link bullets in 3.4.5. for the recent posts and categories widget. No luck so far.
Last thing I tried was:

div.widget ul a:link {
list-style-type: disk !important;

This is after I changed "left border widths for links" to 0.

Hi Flynn,

I have tried your first suggestion for replacing the gray rectangles and didn't work. It only show the picture aside the rectangle as background.

I deleted all the inserts and saved but now my page wont load in ie8 but it shows fine on Firefox and Safari.:confused:
If apply another theme everything is fine so I think something messed up withing Atahualpa's CSSs but I cannot find any error.

My web page is http://pescaripe.net

Later edit: If I keep refreshing the page in ie8 the page shows up ...

Later Later Edit: I feel so bad. It was all about the background on layout which it had to be defined as white for my black fonts :)) (stupid ie)

Does anybody know how to get rid of the bullets entirely?

I'm using this code in my Header.php file to show my pages in the left sidebar:

<ul id="nav">
<?php if(is_home() && !is_paged()){ ?>
<?php } else { ?>
<?php } ?>
<?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&title_li='); ?>

But the links to my pages come up with Bullets and are center justified.

I'd love to get rid of the bullets and make the text left justified.

TIA for any help,

put the changes in 'ATO->Add HTML/CSS Inserts->CSS Inserts'

I seem to be in a similar boat (I've been bailing for hours). I have two problems: bullets on my list items which I would like to get rid of; and 2) when I hover on the list the div expands to the left (I have no clue as to why!). Newbie could use some help!

Thanks for this thread. I was thrilled to finally replace the bars with discs. Somehow I've lost my hover color set in the ATO options, however. Thoughts? Site is http://flow-dynamix.com and I'm using Atahualpa 3.4.6.

Here's the CSS that I got from item #14:
div.widget ul li a:link,
div.widget ul li a:visited,
div.widget ul li a:active,
div.widget ul li a:hover {
border-left: 0 !important;
padding-left: 0 !important;
div.widget ul {
/* for other styles, try "disc" and "square" instead of "circle" */
color: #00A79D;
list-style-type: disc !important;
padding-left: 0;
margin-left: 0;
div.widget ul li {
/* 1.35 or more required for Safari or bullets too wide on the left */
margin-left: 1.35em;

/* overwrite existing display:block Firefox */
display: list-item;

No rush as I may be offline for about 1 1/2 weeks, but wanted to at least get this into the queue.

The CSS is probably overriding it. Try using
HTML Code:

div.widget ul li {
background: #000000 !important;

div.widget ul li:hover,
div.widget ul li.sfhover {
background: #ffffff !important;

but put in our own colors

Thanks for the thread.. I've got my widget lists looking just lovely -- except for Categories. For some reason they appear differently from all the other widgets, and I can't seem to figure out how to give them some breathing room.

Site: veterangamers.co.uk

Relevant code:


div.widget ul {
list-style-type: none;
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;

div.widget ul li {
background-image: url('<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/images/bullets/red_bullet-1.gif');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: 0px 3px;
padding-left: 14px;
padding-bottom: 5px;
div.widget ul li a:hover {
text-decoration: none;

Try adding this.
HTML Code:

div.widget_categories a {margin-left:10px;}

Dude! I could have sworn I tried that after digging around in the page source code. But I guess I missed something. Thank you so very much! I really appreciate your superb theme and the fantastic support you offer here.
