    CSS modification question – are you still answering these?
    I am updating a Caltrans site that uses a slightly modified version of the 2015 State Template. I have a nav menu on the left-hand side which has two levels of bullets. The second level (indented portion) of the menus has the little default circle – as seen on the menu on this page at left. Do you have any CSS that will delete that second bullet? The URL is:

    • lc

      Where specifically is the “left-hand side menu” on your page? I see the top level nav and nav links on the right sidebar. I checked with full desktop and narrow window view and can’t identify the issue.

    • lc

      Use the .list-unstyled class (cagov.core.css)

    I like the new template and have followed the changes for the past year or so. The addition of the large bands of semi-transparent info at the bottom of the main carousel and at the bottom of the following row of images (explore-invite and teaser) seems to me (just my opinion) to be overkill and distracting. I’d like to see the height of those band reduced. Just my opinion :)
