#4: Forcing Scrollbars: Eliminating “Horizontal Jumps”

In this screencast I talk about how to force vertical scrollbars onto websites. Without doing this, pages with centered content can appear to "jump" to the left or right when going from a page that needs to vertically scroll to one that does not (and visa versa). I cover two different major techniques for doing this, since they both have their advantages and disadvantages between different browsers.

    It’s nice to look through your screencast archives and come across something really simple but also something that has confused me for a long time. I knew this was possible but just couldn’t for life of me work out how it was done. Thanks

    Thank you, it’s really a good video. But I’m wondering is it really a big deal for the little jump of the content =P
