The default view for a Link List is in bullet form.
I created a new view for the the Intranet with Sharepoint 2007, once I did that I lost the bullets and displayed the title of the colunms.
How can I change it back to bullet form?

If the linklist has its own subsite you could try the restore sitedefinition under settings.

When I create a new Link List by default it always shows in bullet form. Once I change the view in a webpart they are gone and shows the column headers.

Hi,

Have you tried to go to "Modify Shared Web Parts" and select "Summary View" as the selected view?

Do you control the HTML code?

<ul>
<li>Item one</li>
<li>Item two</li>
<li>Item three</li>
</ul>

With CSS you can control type graphic for the bullet and other things

Ok I got the bulleted form with Summary View, but I can't get it to sort without reverting to the non bullet form.

Why not?

You only need to go again to "Modify Shared Web Parts", "Edit the Current View", then set "Allow users to order items in this view" to "No".  You'll be able to select the columns to sort by.

I just checked again my test and it is working exactly as you want.  Bulleted list of links with sorting.

I need to underscore the fact that I'm not changing the view, but only editing it.  After I select the "Summary View" I can sort it without losing the bullet form.

Can you try again?

How exactly do you edit the sort without changing the view?

I mean that I'm not selecting a different view, I am only modifying the default one (Summary View).

When I go to "Modify Shared Web Part", then in the right panel I click "Edit the current view" under "Selected View".

Then I am able to set "Allow users to order items in this view" to "No" and to select the columns to sort by.
