Hi, I’m working on a site for a school, and I just realized I cant get the site to scroll down when there is too much content. I tried using the overflow: scroll (and tested the auto as well), but when I put it in it doesnt seem to work. Any ideas? I think it might have something to do with the fixed positioning, but it was the only way i could get things to work together, the school had a very specific design they wanted.
I am assuming you assigned a length property to the content area? have you tried taking that out?
i dont have a height in the content area, but i did test it and put a large number in (like 2500px) to see what it would do, and there was no change, so I’m guessing it’s being ignored because something at a higher level is set to take over.
thank you SO much for your help. i used fixed positioning because i thought it was the best/easiest way to handle their demands on the site, but i realized that was very wrong. i removed all fixed positioning from the site, and that totally fixed the scrolling issue. i now only have one small issue with the navigation but im sure that will be an easy fix.
