Design is always a main constraint for the success of any business and if it is online its need is more. Few article before I wrote about how to select the best template for your blog and today I am going to tell you how we can change the style of bullet points in blogger.


This article has been framed in such a way that anyone without having technical skills also any one can add and change the style. To add the bullet points in HTML, you have to use the <ul> and </ul> tag like below in your blog post-

<ul>
<li>This is first point </li>
<li>This is second point </li>
<li>This is third point </li>
</ul>




And the output of the above code will be like below-


This is a default bullet list style in HTML but isn’t it looks odd? So here I am going to show you few attractive designs which you can add in your blog and get visitors attraction.

Design #1: Changing default to Square

Using just few steps you can change the default circle design to Square.

Step #1: Log in to Blogger dashboard and select ‘Template’ tab and then select Edit HTML.

Step #2: Use Ctrl+F to find ]]></b:skin>’ tag in the code.

Step#3: Finally add the below code before ‘]]></b:skin>’ tag –

.post ul li
{
list-style: square;
}


And save the changes. This will convert the design of bullets to Square and will look like below-

Design #2: Changing default bullet points to Circle


Follow the steps 1 & 2 as discusses above and just change the code to –

.post ul li
{
list-style: circle;
}

And save the changes. It will give you the design like –

Design #3: Changing bullet points with attractive image

Here we will change the entire bullets itself and will place a good looking image over there. For this select any image which you want to use like bullet design. Follow the steps 1 & 2 as explained in first design and change the code to-

.post ul li
{
list-style-image:url('http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0Md6DIX-fTk/Up7w-n8o1aI/AAAAAAAAEBQ/oI58yn19_0c/s1600/bullets-point-image.gif');
}

Here 'http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-0Md6DIX-fTk/Up7w-n8o1aI/AAAAAAAAEBQ/oI58yn19_0c/s1600/bullets-point-image.gif' is the url of image that I am going to use. You can replace this image with the one you want. This design will look like below-


Isn’t this looking cool? :)

Design #4: Changing bullet points with attractive image with mouse hover effect

The beauty of this customization is that whenever you point your mouse cursor on the list, the image color will change. This is the design I am using in my blog. Here also follow the first two steps of Design #1 and search ‘]]></b:skin>’ tag. Then place the below codes just above the ‘]]></b:skin>’ tag.

.post ul
{
list-style:none;
}
.post ul li
{
line-height: 1.4em;
background: transparent url(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7wsQzULWIwo/SuM3oYoTkRI/AAAAAAAACHw/Dig1etGrcpY/s400/251.gif) no-repeat scroll 0px 4px;
margin: 0.3em 0;
padding: 0 0 0.8em 20px;
}
.post ul li:hover
background: transparent url(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_7wsQzULWIwo/SuM3oFg5zlI/AAAAAAAACHo/n5UluB5ugMI/s400/255.gif) no-repeat scroll 0px 4px;
