    My site:

    I am currently in the very early sages of putting a site together for my wife. Seems to work fine on all browsers I have tried. Unfortunately, I can’t get the site to scroll down vertically in Safari when using IPHONE or IPAD.

    I have tried all kinds of variations, but am not skilled enough to nail down the problem.

    This is my current body text;

    body {
    background-image: url();
    background-repeat: repeat;
    margin: 0px;
    overflow-y: scroll;


    Any help from an expert would be greatly appreciated.



    You shouldn’t need the overflow property at all if there is enough content to cause overflow.

    Why are you trying to force it?

    I had the same.
    Changed the
    overflow-y: scroll; to
    overflow: auto;
    That was enough for me.


    hi there!
    I had the same problem and even if I didn’t use body overflow or hidden, it seems that one of my .js files was somehow interfering with full display.
    I had using skrollr.min.js and for that, in my ios browsers (*chrome and safari), my website didn’t scroll down. after removing that, now it’s working.
