How to Remove the WordPress Sidebar Bullets

Looking to remove the WordPress sidebar Bullets? The following tutorial is for those who use the default WordPress theme or a derivative of it and want to remove the sidebar bullets to make for a cleaner looking blog. The bullets normally don't appear if your using the Internet Explorer browser and although some people prefer the bulleted sidebar look, I tend to remove it on all sites I have helped develop.

Removing the bullets from WordPress Sidebar

  1. Log into your WordPress administration panel
  2. Navigate to Design -> Theme Editor and select stylesheet from the list
  3. From the stylesheet locate and remove the following code:
    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before { content: "0BB 020"; }
  4. Update the file and go view your site. Your site should look much cleaner without the bulleted sidebar.
