Support » Fixing WordPress » Horizontal Scroll Bar Issues with WordPress iFrame

  • I’m using a super stripped down WordPress setup as a news window for a site I’m working on right now ( ). The team updates section is an iFrame that contains the WordPress blog. The problem I’m running into is that pesky horizontal scroll bars show up when they shouldn’t.

    I’ve insterted non-Wordpress text filled pages into the space of the iFrame and there were no horizontal scroll bars which means that the problem is somewhere in the WordPress page.

    I have my posting title and content in seperate but connected table cells. The table is set to 100% width, text is justified, there are no images in the page. When I view the Blog independent of the iFrame I can resize the IE window all day and the text just moves around without ever creating a horizontal scroll (

    Anyone have any ideas how I can get rid of the horizontal scroll. I’ve been stumped for a good three hours.

    Give the post class a width.

    .post {
    when applied to the wp index.php you have does something, and reducing table width from 100% may also help.

    I gave that a shot but still no dice. I changed the table width to 90% but the post width overrided that anyways. I added a color to the table so it was apparent where it physically ended. There is plenty of space for there to not need to be a horizontal scroll.

    For the record I also tried it without putting the content and title in tables and it still did the same thing.

    I just spoke with one of my friends that uses Foxfire and he said that it looks as it should. Therefore, is there something weird about IE?

    As much as I’d like to call it a day and say “it works for Mozilla, let it be”, 90% of the country uses IE.
