Use Images For List Bullet Points On Your Blog

6:13 PM |

In this post i have a really cool Blog Design Tip to spice up the lists on your blog.When you create an ordered list, items in the list are numbered, and in an unordered list items have what is called a bullet point.What we will do in this post is replace the default bullet point with an image.We do this with just a small snippet of Css including the image URL.To make it as easy as possible i have 10 ready to use images for your bullet points but you can of course use your own image.I also have this set so you can just use the image bullet point on selected lists.If we set it to work on all lists on your blog it could mess up your sidebar and other sections.


Add The Css To Blogger


Step 1. Copy the Css code below for the Bullet Image you want to use from below.On Blogger you add it via the template designer by going to Design > Template Designer > Advanced > Add Css as shown below, remember to click apply to blog to save.


Use Your Own Image - Replace IMAGE-URL-HERE with an image around 12x12px.

ul.imglist {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}
ul.imglist li {
margin: 0;
list-style-image:url('
IMAGE-URL-HERE');
}

}

Thats the Css, We now have to add a class to the lists we want to use images on.

When you create an unordered list this is the code you use :

<ul>
<li>Item One</li>
<li>Item Two</li>
</ul>

We simply add class='imglist' to the ul tag like this :

<ul class="imglist">
<li>Item One</li>
<li>Item Two</li>
</ul>

And that's it you now have a neat image for the bullet points on your lists.
