    Hi,

    Thank you again for a great plugin!

    Before Tutor LMS 2.0, both myself and my users had zero issues with the lesson pages.

    They consisted of only one vertical scrollbar and were therefore very easy to navigate.

    Now, however, there are multiple scrollbars (including two right next to each other on long lesson pages!) as well as a horizontal scrollbar thrown in for good measure.

    This makes for a very frustrating experience and screams of trying to fix something that wasn’t broken!

    In particular, the two scrollbars on the right for long lesson pages almost make the pages impossible to navigate.

    Please consider reverting back to the old grid layout or at least using a layout that contains only one scrollbar. The benefits of having a stickied sidebar do not outweigh the confusion of having multiple, confusing scrollbars.

    Thank you!

    Dear @ucdguy

    I am very sorry for the issue. I think you are facing the scrollbar issue with your theme. Please try with a different theme.

    Thank you

    No, it has nothing to do with the theme.

    I just switched from the Elementor Hello theme to the Twenty Two theme and also removed any of my custom CSS. I see the exact same four scrollbars.

    Just to make sure I hadn’t done something else, I installed a fresh copy of WordPress locally and added nothing else but Tutor LMS. All of those four scrollbars appear.

    Add 20 paragraphs to a lesson page. Are you saying that you don’t see two scrollbars on the right when you do that? Have you really never tested a long lesson page until right now?

    Actually, I don’t think you have because you would have realised that these left and right page navigation arrows don’t scroll with the lesson page.

    Once a user scrolls to the bottom of a lesson page, they have scroll back up to the top of a lesson page in order to find these arrows and navigate to the next page. Not a good user experience.

    (In fact, I had to rollback to an earlier 2.0 version to show you these navigation arrows as they don’t seem to be present in 2.0.4? The only way for a user to navigate to the next lesson page in 2.0.4 is to find that page in the sidebar? What?)

    Dear @ucdguy

    Please check with the TutorStarter theme.

    Now the navigation arrow will show if the lesson has a video. Many users don’t like the arrow if the lesson only has texts. That’s why we removed the arrow.

    Thank you

    “Many users don’t like the arrow if the lesson only has texts.”

    Yes, and I am one of them. But what is the alternative when there are no arrows?

    There should be previous and next buttons instead at the bottom of the page like there was before, but there isn’t. There is currently no way to easily navigate to the next page except by finding that next page in the sidebar, which makes for a very frustrating experience, especially on mobile.

    As for my issue with the two scrollbars on the right, I believe that I fixed it myself.

    You’ve set the height of the lesson content to 100vh, which means that another scrollbar appears if the lesson content doesn’t fit on the page, in addition to a scrollbar if the entire body doesn’t fit on the page.

    I fixed it with the following:

    .tutor-course-single-content-wraper #tutor-single-entry-content {
    height:auto !important;
    }

    As explained above, this happens on the various themes that I tried on a fresh install of WordPress, so might be worth implementing this in the next update.

    Dear @ucdguy

    I will talk with our team regarding the navigation of the lesson page.

    Thank you for addressing this in 2.0.5.
