Support » Plugin: Easy FancyBox » Scrolling with mouse wheel doesn't work

  • Resolved Garfinator



    I’m using Fancybox to display inline content in a popup. I removed the horizontal scrollbar using “overflow-x: hidden” and “overflow-y: scroll”.

    Everything works pretty well, except that vertical scrolling only works by moving the scrollbar but not by using the mouse wheel.

    For an example, go to, type “test” at the left of the red button with “Ik ben geĂ¯nteresseerd” and hit the button.

    Any idea how I can make vertical scrolling using the mouse wheel work?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi, it’s the jQuery Mousewheel extension… Do you know how to hack a plugin? Of so, you can edit the main easy-fancybox.php and comment out the line where it enqueues the mousewheel.jquery script file.

    If not, you’ll have to wait for the next update which will have an option on the settings page to disable that extension.

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I had already solved the problem in the meantime by shrinking the content so that it fits in the popup window.

    However, it looks like this will be a good solution in case I need it elsewhere! Or the next plugin update of course đŸ™‚

    Thank you!

    I was able to solve my inability to get vertical scrolling working on a large div of text by renaming the jquery.mousewheel.js and jquery.mousewheel.pack.js files, essentially disabling them.

    @fastasleep — the current versionhas an option to disable the mousewhheel script. Look for ‘mousewheel’ on your Settings > Media admin page.

    I’m using the latest — 1.5.5 — and there is no mention of “mousewheel” on the Settings page.

    You probably need to enable the default Images section first. Then the option will be visible. Disable it, save and disable Images again if you do not need that…

    Yep, see that now. Thanks!
