Hi
I would like to add "red checkmark" bullets to my page. I have ATO 3.5.3 WP 3.0.1 and just installed TinyMCE Advanced.
I have followed a few different guidelines, including editing the css code of both the TinyMCE and ATO to include:

.chkmark8 {
background:transparent url(/images/chkmark8.gif) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
list-style-type:none;
padding-left: 20px;
}

(and I uploaded the gif to the "images" folder - as well as icon and bullet folders .

That did add chkmark8 into the styles "drop down", but no check marks appeared.

I also followed Ken's suggestions from April 2010 (which included editing the CSS style button from the TinyMCE toolbar)

Still no red check bullets

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Dona

Hi,
I am using WP 3.0.1 and ATO 3.5.3

The site is: www.anewconsciousness.org

i have put in "images" for the checkmarks but they don't keep the format (they bleed into the prior lines).

I have tried numerous ways to get custom bullets, including trying to find a plugin that has it, yet nothing has worked (so far)

Thanks!
Dona

Same thing here, using the same versions of ATA and WP. I've been able to change the bullets to a custom image in the widgets (thanks to help here!) but I want to change them site-wide.

I managed to do this in the CSS inserts and it worked, but it then added bullets to my page and category menus as well. Here's what I added:

ul{
list-style:none;
margin:0 0 1em 15px;
padding: 0;
}
ul li{
line-height:1.3em;
margin: .25em 0;
padding: 0 0 0 15px;
background:url(/wp-content/themes/atahualpa353/images/bullets/Arrowheadbullet.jpg) no-repeat 0 3px;
}

I don't want the bullets to show up in my page/cat menus, I tried adding

list-style-type: none !important;

to the

div#menu1 area

and then to the

div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:link,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:hover,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:visited,
div#menu1 ul.rMenu li a:active

area, but neither of those worked. (I am new to CSS, so the answer may be staring me in the face)

I wanted list bullets in the left/right sidebar, but not in the horizontal nav meny below the header.

Since the bullets are backgrounds - and not list-types, I added background:none; where I didn't want them.

My site is att http://iloveto.se/

Hope it helps!
