I would be glad to help. I am able to access the privacy.php page, but I do not see where you are attempting to use bullets. Also The file appears to be offline. Can you upload the file to instead. Also I'm unclear what is supposed to be in this file.

I am unable to upload the zip file with wikisend. Please let me know when you are online and I will send you the FTP information.

Expert:  david replied 1 year ago.
I see. So you should be able to solve this problem with CSS, but if you add bullets to those items, it would add bullets to all of the items in your sidebar menu as well. If you don't want that, we would need to define a class for that specific list.

Could you post a screenshot of what your editor looks like when you are editting the list? That way I can provide the easiest way to make these changes.

You should be able to see the actual printout at

I am able to see the printout, but I would like to see how you edit this content inside the Wordpress interface. Different themes use different ways to edit content, so once I see how you edit that particular page, I can determine the easiest way to solve the problem. Just take a screenshot while you are in edit mode with that list, and post it like you did the previous screenshot.

If you look at privacy.php there is a line that says "<?php echo TEXT_INFORMATION; ?>"

The definition is in this file:

Expert:  david replied 1 year ago.
Actually, the php content in php files are processed by the server before they are sent to a user, so it is impossible for a user to see any of the <?php content in a php file just by looking at the source. Only the owner of the file can access this information by accessing a local copy of the file. So thank you for uploading a copy of this file so I can see it.

So are you saying that other pages that use the TEXT_INFORMATION command are applying bullets to the content? To my knowledge the default behavior of TEXT_INFORMATION is not to apply bullets to HTML lists. Are you seeing this bullet behavior elsewhere on your site, or on another site that is using similar formatting?
Expert:  david replied 1 year ago.
Please let me know of an example where bullets are being shown in HTML lists and I will do my best to provide instructions on how to replicate this behavior.

Will do

Also, the screenshot you posted with bullets, was that an older version of your website, or did you use a word processing program to format it that way?
