There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Custom Bullets

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;
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.

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)

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:

margin:0 0 1em 15px;
padding: 0;
ul li{
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!
