    Could you advice why this problem might be occurring.

    Here’s a ‘sample’




    you can go to your style5.css file and edit your

    a {
    color: #000000;
    text-decoration: underline;


    a {
    color: #000000;
    text-decoration: none !important;


    Hi Chris

    I modified Style5.css – the problem is still there

    (I made sure I flushed any caches on wordpress as well as the browser – just in case the old code was still resident – but to no help)



    The underline style is hardcoded in your text. Please change:

    <span style="text-decoration: underline;">blistering </span>



    Maybe you need to switch to html view.



    Yep – Blistering is underlined (intentionally).

    What I am getting is faint grey lines appearing atop of every paragraph that starts with a bullet point.

    My apologies if I did not explain this properly – its actually not the ‘text’ that is underlined, but an ‘underline’ separating every bullet pointed paragraph

    It shows up on firefox, safari etc, so I kind of guessed you could see this



    Oh ok – add following code to style.css:

    .entry li, .entry ul, .entry ol {
    border: none;



    I dont have a custom.css file in my css directory.

    Should there be one, or is the suggestion to create ‘custom.css’ and add the line above.



    Sorry – I updated the instructions above :)


    OK – trying now – I’ll report back (Thank you )



    the lines are still there:

    I noticed STYLE.css already has an .entry li section of code

    You can see what the file looks like below (with the new entry I created) – ie it has 2 x entry li lines

    Should I remove the ‘old’ entry li section and just have the code line you provided.


    .entry li{

    padding:3px 10px;



    CDDH add 25-7-11


    .entry li, .entry ul, .entry ol {

    border: none;



    Try to use:

    .entry li, .entry ul, .entry ol {
    border: none !important;

    Now the borders should disapear. Please don’t forget to clear caches (wordpress plugins, browser, etc.).



    It worked :-)

    I’ve also done a quick look up of what !important is –

    So as well as the problem being fixed, I’ve learnt a little something along the way

    Thank you


    Glad that I could help you :)
