    When a site employs a 'frame within a page' you need to use the iPad's two-finger scroll and, instead of trying to scroll with a single finger, which moves the entire page, use two fingers instead, which will just scroll the embedded frame. I use my first and second finger and touch the area I want to scroll and drag with both fingers at once, either vertically or horizontally. It takes a bit of practice to get it right, but it soon becomes second nature.

    Awesome Tim!

    I can't wait to try this!

    You just earned some serious street cred with me.

    Scroll bar issue

    I know about the 2 finger technique for scrolling within a frame but my issue is slightly different. When the page loads and I try to scroll the remainder of the page does not load and I get a gray out screen. Is this a specific setting issue? It is actually a school website and it is only with a particular teacher so I am thinking it might be some setting on her end. Any thoughts?:(

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the Advanced Search box (at the top of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    With respect to your question, it sounds like the webpage is not fully loading. If you give it some time does that change...does it fully load? If not, and you're not experiencing trouble with other website, I would agree that it sound like something on their end. You could contact them and let them know.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    I have been having the same problem lately. Here are the solutions I have been able to find:

    1. - 2 finger scrolling (doesn't work on all frames)
    2. - do a long press on the frame until the menu comes up & then I choose open in new tab. ( This way it opens as a tab rather than a frame, and all functionality is returned)
    3. - If it's a pdf then I long press & choose open in open in ibooks .
