please visit this link :


on top you can see search box with "all categories", you can see there is a dropdown menu.

if we hover mouse on that"drop down menu" button, you can see list of "categories and sub-

categories". before every category name there is a line displaying.

I want to remove that line and put "bullet symbol", before all categories.

please help me to get some solution.


That's not a standard magento feature. I assume you have a custom extension that adds the categories to the search.
Look in the files of that extension for the code that generates the list of categories and instead of - use • or simply

In the file EM\Em0113settings\Helper\Data.php look for the method getCatNameCustom.
Inside it there is this line $html .= '—–';. Replace it with $html .= '••';

    I think you have to search in the method getCategoriesCustom called at line 39. Locate the helper with the alias em0113settings. that's where the method is. – Marius Feb 10 '15 at 12:44

    Look inside the extension you are using, for the file Helper/Data.php inside it, you should find a method called getCategoriesCustom . That's the one that returns the categories. – Marius Feb 10 '15 at 13:01

    that's not the right helper. You can add somewhere in your templtate this echo get_class(Mage::helper('em0113settings')) and see the exact class used. – Marius Feb 10 '15 at 13:14

    @user9434334345 add it in the template file. The one you pasted here: pastebin.com/nJJ6Qksz – Marius Feb 12 '15 at 13:25
