Help w/ Horizontally Scrolling Layouts with Flexbox + Columns

  • # May 15, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    Anyone want to help me debug a little experiment I’m working on. I want to use flexbox/multicolumn layout to get a layout similar to what you see in many Windows 8 news app, where the article(s) are in fixed width columns, with a dynamic number of columns depending on the length of the article, that scroll off to the right.

    So I whipped up this [jsfiddle]( or [CodePen]( but flexbox and the columns don’t seem to be working together well. In Firefox, it only shows one column of each, and I can’t even tell what’s going on in webkit.

    What am I screwing up?

    (I looked and in Windows 8 html5 apps they seem to use grid layout, but I can’t do that since it’s IE only)
