    i think this is an embarassinly simple thing do to but i don’t know how to do it.

    what i am looking for is to have some text in a box, and have a scroll bar so you can slide down and read the text.

    = the reason i need this is because on the site i am making, it needs to have a function to change the language, so when you change the language, the text spills out of the box. so i need to have a scroll bar so that it doesn’t do this…

    here is my site… – if you click the flags to change the language, you will see the problem.

    thanks loads for any help on this one! ;)


    You can add overflow-y: scroll; to .header_main in your css


    dude that is exactly what i wanted! thank you so much for that. i really should know that technique by now, and thanks to you, i do now! :D

    i was begining to panic as the client is having a look at it soon and i didn’t want him seeing that mess! thanks again, you’re a life saver!
