Scroll Page Horizontally With Mouse Wheel

1) Load jQuery and the Mouse Wheel plugin

Mouse Wheel plugin is here.

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js?ver=1.3.2'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='/js/jquery.mousewheel.min.js'></script>

2) Attach mousewheel event to body

The "30" represents speed. preventDefault ensures the page won't scroll down.

$(function() {

   $("body").mousewheel(function(event, delta) {

      this.scrollLeft -= (delta * 30);
    
      event.preventDefault();

   });

});
