[resolved] Double scrollbar with some themes (3 posts)

    Many smart starter themes including _s and the HTML5 Reset theme use html { overflow-y: scroll; } in order to keep the scroll bar showing at all times so that pages don't horizontally jump when going from a page taller than the screen to one that's not or vice-versa.

    However, I'm seeing this cause a double-scroll bar when using the carousel from Jetpack. That's a major bummer. I turned it off on my site, so I don't have a great screenshot to reference, but I can promise you it happens. I don't know if this bug fix will resolve the issue (my guess is not), but, either way, it seems like this is a situation Jetpack should expect and preempt.

    I had the same issue with one of my themes. Have you tried taking the overflow attribute from html to body? body{ overflow-y:scroll; }

    That worked for me. Still have the same bug about the image over the scrollbar though.

    Thanks for the report. We've worked on a fix for this issue, and it will be released with the next version of Jetpack.
