change 'Menu' look

Postby PatriciaAH » Tue Feb 07, 2012 9:56 pm

Hi there,

Can anyone help me with the following 2 questions:

I have a menu in the left collumn of my homepage, called 'main menu'. I don't want this title to show up on the page. How/where do I delete this text? See example:

Main menu <- how to delete this text?
. home <- and how to delete these bullets?
. news
. contact

Thanks!

Here we go... To get rid of the Title of the menu, just go into the module manager, find the "Main menu" module and click into it. On "Show title:", just change it to NO. That's the title...
Now, changing the LOOK of that menu is a little more involved. Its really handled by the CSS file. So I can better help, do you know what CSS is? (I'm really not trying to be rude, it'll just help for me to know kinda where we're at)

Look for template.css somewhaere around line 1736 locate this style

Code: Select all

.moduletable li


and make sure it has something like this

Code: Select all

list-style:  none;


that will stop the . from showing

thank you
