Question about Scrollbars (7 posts)

    Hello, I have a question maybe some of you experts can answer.

    I code a page, to fit 800x600 resolution. Everything is fine, no horizontal scrollbar.

    I then insert a news ticker...inside a table cell. All the width settings are correct. The ticker shows up great. But, a bottom scrollbar appears in the browser window (not near the ticker, the actual browser window). I am in 1024 x 768, and I see a scrollbar.

    I have overflow:hidden in the code. All that appears to do is everything that outside of X pixels wide, is hidden (imagine that) but actually is still there--you just cannot see it...which, I guess, is the definition of hidden.

    I want to know, if there is a way to get rid of the bottom scrollbar. It is not needed for any reason, no matter what resolution you are in. Is there a way to disable it?

    Here is a link one of the pages in question. It is a demo for one of the themes I am working on

    Ticker shows up exactly the way it should...but that bottom scrollbar needs to go!

    Thanks!

    It disapears in higher resolutions, just so you know. :) My guess, after a quick look-see, is the bigger container doesn't have the overflow;hidden on it, and it's the one picking up on the extra width.

    Also, you could ask in the regular wp.org forums, as you'll get more answers and it's a generic theme question not really specific to MU. :)

    I asked here in the Misc section, I thought this was just an open forum. Thanks Andrea--Its good to know that it disappears in higher res...I will see if I can figure out a way to make it disappear in lower res.

    Yeah, I know...tables. I am still old school. LOL.
