Home Forums CSS [SOLVED] list-style-image problems Reply To: [SOLVED] list-style-image problems


The syntax should look like this:

ul { 
list-style-image: url(/Users/tracyowen/Desktop/graphicdesign/fish1.jpeg);

So you basically had the syntax right except for the px declarations, which don’t belong here.

Of course there is the problem that you’re trying to link an image from your local machine – you can’t do it that way. You’ll need to upload the image to your server.

So, if you’re website domain was:, and you had an “images” folder where you stored all your images, the url for your fish1 image could look like:

also, make sure that the file extension in your url and file match… I noticed you’re file is a .jpeg, so just be careful not to mix that up with .jpg
