iPad Horizontal Scrolling

  • # February 27, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Greetings guys,

    I’ve got some problems here. I was building a site for a friend of mine. He is a photographer and needs a website. He would like a iPad Compatible site. The site uses a simple horizontal scrollbar but it seems not to show up on the iPad.

    Here is the site: – just on a experimental host

    It works with 2-finger scrolling (albeit not-exactly-smoothly). Is there no way indicate to the user that this is possible?

    I didn’t even know myself till I looked up the problem

    Otherwise you could set the with of the page to encompass all the photos, then set a viewport size, even the initial scale!

    You’d loose the stationary text, and position:absoute doesn’t work as expected

    javascript might be the way forward for normal scrolling though. But I’m barely treading water as it is :)

    Good luck

    PS. Love the way the icons have absolutely NO relation to the content. tree=email? Brilliant
