Scroll bars on iPhone and iPad1 user found helpful
I have my theme built and it is running fine. I have a few scroll bars within blocks and this was done using css within design of the block.
The site looks fine in all browsers but the scroll bars do not appear when viewing on ipad or iphone, my be other handhelds as well.
One of the websites in question ishttp://www.prestigeblack.co.uk
css code used is:
Has anyone seen this before and if so where have I gone wrong?
You may find loading an alternate CSS file for mobile browsers may be preferred. You can add a script to your header for mobile browser detection, quite easily, do a google search for "Mobile Browser Detection script php".
Personally I don't mind scrolling on my iPad or iPhone.
I don't mind scrolling either, its just the scroll bar within the block does not appear on these devices, just thought it was strange when it appears on normal browsers.
NP. You can scroll with two fingers on iDevices. So you could integrate a pop-up for iDevices advising to do this, but it may be easier to just load an alternate CSS.
The page scrolls fine using fingers etc, it's when you have set a scroll bar on a block within the page to scroll text within a block that it disappears on the iDevices. I will have a dig about google and look for some alternate code.
Stumbled upon this, which may help get the scroll bars back.
Tried it on my iPhone the (custom) scroll bars appear, and scroll with one finger.
