    @imagei

    Hi there,
    I’ve created a forum with bbpress and it’s covered in bullet points. It is referencing my theme really well apart from this one failing. I don’t want to turn them off for the whole site as they are used frequently else where. I just need to turn them off for for bbpress. Can someone please advise me how I would do this???
    Someones help would be greatly appreciated.

    I’ve tried to post a screenshot but the img function seems to be a bit sticky??

    This is done in CSS. You should use a dev tool like firebug or chrome dev tools and inspect the element in question. It will tell you what CSS rule is styling that part.

    I tried to screenshot it because I’ve set it up behind a hosts entry. here we go again:

    nope….
    OK – here is some of the code from firebug. :

    #bbpress-forums ul {
    list-style: none outside none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }
    #bbpress-forums li {
    list-style: none outside none;
    margin: 0;
    }

    These are the styles that I would have thought controlled the bulleting of lists but the code seems to already indicate no style for the unordered lists?
    I have tried adding both:

    list-style: none;

    and:
    list-style: none !important;

    and:
    list-style: none outside none !important;

    to all of the #bbpress style entries that I can find (only in firebug preview, not actual changes) but the little blighters remain steadfast.

    ?????

    Hey Nathan,
    Thanks for helping out. If you paste this entry into your hosts file:

    109.73.162.147 apa.uk.com

    , you’ll see the Forum at:

    apa.uk.com/forums

    just dont use the www. As you can see, each entry is peppered with bullets. Thanks again for your input.

    OK, in the absence of any input, I’ve been firebug fishing for a way of selectively removing all the bullets from bbpress, but not from my main theme. To the the next guy or girl who searches for a resolution to this, I hope this works for you too – it has finally brought me success.

    #bbpress-forums ul > li:before
    {
    content: none;
    }

    Do you mean I need to unsubscribe to this forum for you to answer? How will I know if you reply if I do? Thanks if you can help me out!
