How Do I Change the Color of a Bullet in Webflow?

Changing the color of a bullet in Webflow can be a simple yet effective way to add some visual interest to your website’s design. By default, Webflow provides a basic set of bullet styles, but with a little bit of HTML and CSS, you can customize the color of your bullets to match your brand or design aesthetic.

To change the color of a bullet in Webflow, you can use CSS pseudo-elements such as ::before or ::after to Target the bullet specifically. Let’s dive into the step-by-step process:

1. First, open your Webflow project and navigate to the page or element where you want to change the bullet color.

2. To ensure that our changes only affect specific elements, let’s add a class to the element containing the bullets. For example, if you have an unordered list (ul) with bullets that you want to customize, give it a class name like “custom-bullets”.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.

3. Now that we have Targeted our desired element, let’s style it using CSS. To change the color of the bullets in our custom-bullets class, we’ll use pseudo-elements (::before or ::after) along with CSS properties.



4. In the code above, we’re Targeting all list items (li) within elements with the “custom-bullets” class and adding a red bullet using the content property. You can replace “red” with any valid CSS color value (e.g., hex code or named color).

5. Additionally, if you want to customize the bullet shape, you can change the “•” character to any other symbol or even use an image by specifying a URL within the content property.

.custom-bullets li::before {
content: url(‘bullet.png’); /* Replace ‘bullet.png’ with your desired bullet image URL */
color: red;
margin-right: 8px;

6. Save your changes and preview the page to see your custom bullet style in action.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the color of bullets in Webflow using CSS. Feel free to experiment with different colors, shapes, and styles to match your website’s design.

Remember, CSS is a powerful tool that allows you to customize various aspects of your website’s appearance. By incorporating these visual elements into your HTML content, you can create engaging and organized tutorials that capture your readers’ attention.
