How To Add Bullet Points In The WordPress Sidebar

Question: How do I add bullet points in my WordPress sidebar?

Answer: In your theme’s style sheet (the CSS file) you need to add the following code:

div#sidebar ul li:before {
content: "\2022 \0020";

Without getting too technical, “2022” is the HEX value for a bullet point and “0020” is the HEX value for a space. ┬áThe CSS is telling the browser to disaply the bullet point before the list items.

Note: Depending on your theme setup you may need to adjust the CSS selector for this to work.
