Scrollbars disappear on Media page


Scrollbars are not available on any Media pages. I checked this in Firefox and Chrome. Same problem. It happens whether I'm viewing another members page or my own. The result is that I can't scroll down to the pictures at the bottom of the page. I'm using the Firmasite theme with the spacelab option.

I bet you’re using Bootstrap?


hey had the same issue while using bootstrap based theme…

Just add: {
overflow: auto;
To your Theme style and it will works!

Hope it helps!


Vintagers, thanks. It worked perfectly! Instead of modifying the theme or creating a child theme, I added the code to a custom css box in the Firmasite theme customizer. I’m not sure if this adds a child-theme, I couldn’t find it.

Do you know if the custom css added through the theme customizer will survive theme updates?


You’re welcome @tanzengeist, happy to know someone didn’t spend as much time as me on such a “small” issue lol

Your add should remain in place while updating as it’s part of your theme settings and get stored in the DB. But you always be safer keeping this somewhere else too :wink: (favorite the post, write this in a text file on your computer…)
