Tutorial: How to customise unordered list

Sometimes we need to make a list of something. It doesn't matter what it is, it could be the things you plan to do tomorrow, or 7 things you like about your partner. However at times we do get bored of the same old bullet-style list and we want to see something a little creative. So, how are we going to do it?

First of all, we need to spiff up the stylesheet (CSS). Open up your stylesheet file, or if you are using Blogger, just open your HTML file and look for this piece of code. If you don't have it, now it's time to add it to your stylesheet.

ul { list-style-type: bullet; }

(ul refers to unordered list.) Replace bullet with other styles, for example square or circle.

You might also want to use your own image as the bullet so this is how you do it: Replace the bullet with the link to the image that you want to use instead:

ul { list-style-image: url('URLofimagehere') ; }


But what if we want to assign two or more bullet styles to the list? This is when classes come in handy.
Say if you want to create a checklist and some of the items in the list have been fulfilled or completed so you want a tick to appear next to the list instead. So how do we do it?
We will then need to determine the default bullet style, in this example we will use an empty box emptybox.

ul { list-style-image: url('URLoftheemptybox'); }


Now it's time to write the code for the list style that uses a tick tickbox instead of the circle. We create a class called 'tick' for items that have been completed or achieved.

ul li.tick { list-style-image: url('URLforthetickbox'; }


Now that we are done styling the CSS, it's time to show off what we have done. We will create a list of, in this example, my wishlist which composes of:

<ul>
<li>A digital camera</li>
<li>A new phone</li>
<li>5 books</li>
<li>Graduate with flying colours</li>
</ul>

They will appear like this on the web page:
List

So if I have achieved/obtained some of the things in the list, say the camera and the books, I will modify my codes to look like this:


<ul>
<li class="tick">A digital camera</li>
<li>A new phone</li>
<li class="tick">5 books</li>
<li>Graduate with flying colours</li>
</ul>

And we will achieve this:

Hire me to design your blog!

I offer designing and re-designing of Classic Blogger templates. Examples of my design can be found on my portfolio website.

The basic rate for a design starts from $25 USD. The rate is based on the complexity of the design. The more elaborate the design is, the higher the price is.

How to place your order

Send me an email via the contact form and state clearly how you want your design to be. This includes colour scheme, layout (with or without sidebar, number of columns, etc), any extra features, etc.

Your email should be in this format:
Name:

I shall respond to your email within 3 (three) days. Your order will be placed into a Waiting Queue as orders are processed on a first come, first serve basis.

Payment methods

Payment has to be made to either by PayPal, or Moneybookers.

However, if you choose to pay via (international) bank transfer, be aware that you may be charged for the transfer service.

Other important information

Throughout the designing process, I may need to refer back to you for questions/opinions so do check your email frequently. This is to ensure the design can be done as soon as possible.

Depending on the design, your template make take up to over 1 (one) week to finish. You will be informed once the template is done.

I will send you an email requesting for the payment after the template is done. Once the payment is received, I will email you the complete template along with the necessary files.

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 27. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

Among the interwebs community, I am generally known as Kitty. I hold a bachelor degree in Social Science Education, majoring in History and currently I am pursuing a Masters degree in South East Asian Studies. I enjoy talking to my online friends. You could say I have more friends in the cyberworld than in real life. Because it is easier for me to talk to people without looking at them in the face; I'm a shy person and I'm very self-conscious on how I look. I don't know what people think about me so I'd leave that to you to figure out yourself.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
