Magento adds “list-dot” when displaying product categories on frontpage

Hello everyone,

i seem to have a weird problem with my Magento (CE 1.7), when i try to display a certain product-category as a list on my frontpage.

When i use
{{block type="catalog/product_list" category_id="4" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}}
the products of category 4 show up fine on the page. BUT, every picture now starts with a little, black “listing-dot”, which causes the pictures to move a bit to right. This results in, that only 2 products can be shown in one row, and the third is moved to the next row - but wih the terrible effect, that it also moves/removes some of the buy buttons.

I use a 3-column homepage, and i don’t have any trouble with the product listings on the category pages itself. There the 3 producs per row show up perfectly.
Only on the frontpage the error seems to display.

I also tried with
{{block type="cms/block" block_id="specialoffer"}}
{{block type="cms/block" block_id="newproducts"}}
for new products and special offers, but again that dot appears and kills the listing.

I have no idea why this is happening. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction?

Hi,

You can hide these dots by simply using the css property :

li {list-style:none outside none;}

Let me know if it works.

Thanks

Hello Pulkit

Thanks for your answer. smile
I am not realle sure, where to put that in the homepage? Doesn’t change anything if i add it to layout section.
We updated to CE 1.8 meanwhile, but still these dots are showin on the frontpage (and only there).
