Cannot scroll text on mobile device

Post by nugget64 » Tue Jan 30, 2018 10:17 pm

On of the web pages contains a lot of text.
I used an inline frame to scrol.
It works, but not on a mobile device, there is not a scrollbar visible
Any tips?

Some mobile browsers (like Apple's Safari on the iPhone/iPad) do not support scroll-bars in an inline frame.
Apple has intentionally disabled this to prevent multiple scroll-bars in one page.
As far as I know thee is no workaround for this. So for mobile devices you should make sure the inline frame is large enough to display the full text.

Note that this is not specific to the QWB.
