How to Use Custom Bullet Points in Squarespace




One of my favorite ways to add a little personality to your Squarespace site is adding custom bullet points. With some simple code and a few small tweaks, you can use just about any symbol (or emoji!) as a bullet point on your site. Here’s how!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: Add Custom Bullet Points to Squarespace

Hey, and welcome back to another video where I show you some cool ways you can customize your Squarespace website. In today’s video, I’m specifically going to be talking about how you can add fancy custom bullet points to your website with just a little bit of custom code. We’re specifically going to be using CSS to make these changes and I’ll include any code I mentioned over in the blog post associated with this video. You can copy and paste the code and go into your design settings and then to custom CSS, to add this to your own Squarespace website. Keep in mind, you have to be on the business plan or higher to be able to use this functionality. The first thing we’re going to do is tell Squarespace that we want to change the area before each list item.

Then, you can use the link around this video to choose a symbol that you want to use instead of the default bullet point.

You then want to copy and paste the CSS code for that symbol and place it in the content section here.

Next, you’re going to play around with the font weight, the font size, the position and the color of your bullet point to make it really custom for you. Depending on the type of symbol you chose, you might have to make it bigger or smaller or move it a little bit more in one direction or another. And that’s all really easy to do with the CSS snippet I’m providing here.

I’m going to include some of my favorite bullet points like checkmarks and arrows below this video, so you can check them out and see what’s going to work best for you.
