Why Can’t WordPress 2.5.2 Display Bulletpoints?

  • They show in the wysiwyg editor – wordpress or offline
  • The proper code shows in html view
  • The bulletpoints flash up for a split second when displaying the blog post…
  • Then they disappear

The above lines are all bulleted – except WordPress 2.5.2 can’t display them. Does anyone know why?

Update (6/5): Well, apparently Stuart does. In a comment below he explains:

The Newsgator widget is inserting the following CSS which is disabling the bullets:
li {
list-style-type: none;
list-style-image: none;
list-style-position: outside;

Oops. I thought it was specific to the latest WP release, as I’ve only noticed this error recently. The Enterprise Irregular badge (the one from NewsGator) has been on my sidebar for a long time without causing any problems, so they must have changed something very recently.

I temporarily disabled the widget and bullets are displayed correctly, which confirms that Stuart is right. I am going to re-enable the widget (and thus kill bullets) hoping that NewsGator will soon fix the problem.

Update #2:  NewsGator fixed the issue in a  matter of hours.  Thanks, guys, now we have our ammo bullets back.
