  • Here is what I have in the body of my css sheet for wordpress
    scrollbar-base-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-arrow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-darkshadow-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-face-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-highlight-color: #000000;
    scrollbar-shadow-color: #FFFFFF;
    scrollbar-3dlight-color: #FFFFFF;
    background: #fff;
    border: solid 2px #565;
    border-bottom: solid 1px #565;
    border-top: solid 3px #565;
    color: #000;
    font-family: ‘Lucida Grande’, ‘Lucida Sans Unicode’, Verdana, sans-serif;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    I added the scrollbar colors in there but it doesn’t work for some reason. Anyone know?

  • never mind. I didn’t take the doctype out from the top of the index.php page. lol. I know I am stupid lol.

    put it into the body tag, not anywhere else

    I’m just getting started on styling my scrollbar and have the same problem, I’m a n00b. what exactly needs to be removed? The doctype from the header document? Why does it have to be removed?

    I can’t style the darned scrollbar, is it because I’m using xhtml?

    rolandog – xhtml is not the issue, but be aware that only IE supports this. Anyone using Firefox will see regular scrollbars.

    my undertanding is (and correct if wrong) is that only IE users will see this, and it’s an effect that other browsers will simply ignore.

    Is a coloured scroll bar really that important? It simply adds to the size of your css – and the more you add the more the user needs to download, and the page has to fetch before it displays the content. Scrollbars with colours belong in the 90s with 50x50px spinning email buttons and neon hit counters


    nevertheless, it’s just a small touch I wanted to give for any IE users…

    I’m a die-hard Firefox fan, but the only disadvantage upon using Firefox is it’s slowness in processing flash… well, not slowness, but sometimes you can notice the difference in framerates.

    Then again, this matter should be brought up to the Firefox coders, and not the kind WordPress Support forums.
