Hi All

I've recently joined a company to help with web design although this site has not been set up/designed by me, we are using a content management system to manage blog posts but this is linked via feed burner and might be messing with the scrolling?

This has been driving me crazy. As far as I can tell (through searching around the web) nobody else seems to have this problem. The CSS code for the body is:

body{
width:500px;
height:1200px;
background-image: url(images/bg_left.gif);
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: black;overflow:auto;
background-overflow-x:hidden;
overflow-y:auto;

Is there anything I can do/ any css changes that will stop this happening? (http://www.sharethinkact.co.uk/)

Any help would be appreciated Smile

Clarify for me

  1. Why is body set to 500px width?
  2. Why is horizontal scrolling killed?
  3. Why is the container 3000px wide? See body above.
  4. Why is content_panel set to 10000px height?
  5. Or the width 2000px?

I can't make head nor tails out of what you're trying to accomplish, because without some rationalization or compelling reason, these are not sane values; they simply make no sense to me.

Is there a particular browser that has the issue? In FF12, I see a static page with a vertical scrollbar and no horizontal scrolling. The right side of the page is lost.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
