    I know you need to use two fingers to scroll inside a frame, but what's the reason for this not working in some places? I've authored a site where two fingers work at all parts except one, and I'm quite sure all frames are written the same... Could, in this case, be frames within frames, if I give it a closer thought...

    Any thoughts on this?

    I moved this to the JB section with a redirect, because I think from your PM it's likely to be a JB-specific issue.

    Can you share that link with us to see if we can (1) duplicate your problem and (2) see if we can "fiddle" with it to try to get it to work?

    Cause I have run into sites (namely, Angel on my college's website) that will NOT scroll further than what's on the screen no matter what I do. And, I don't know why... So, maybe that's your case?

    Well, it's ::: Välkommen till Hälleby Byalag :::. It's the first and the fourth link (on the left hand) that doesn't work properly. Could be frames within frames, I dont remember...

    'Rekordsidan' and 'Styrelsen/Nyheter' works with two-finger scroll.

    Well, I looked at that site with my iPad and with my Windows machine running Firefox. The trouble areas are the tabs where the scrolling is inside the boundaries of that barn-like structure: Rekordsidan and Styrelsen/Nyheter. They don't scroll at all on my iPad (and I tried, in Atomic Web Browser, IDing the browser as iPad Safari, desktop Safar, Firefox and IE).

    It worked worse when I actually used the iPad Safari app (the Gastbok didn't work and I could barely access the Tidigare resultat and Blider/pressklipp dropdowns).

    I wonder if it's that gray stonework at the bottom? It might be overriding the ability of the iPad to access the scrolling part? What if you were to remove that gray part and allow the barn (?) to have no floor so as to allow scrolling?

    That's all I've got. Sorry to be of not much use. However, I will tell you that, although I can't understand a word :)D), it's a pretty site when accessed via my desktop's Firefox.

    Sorry not better help.

    Thanks for the appraisal, Marilyn! I've actually written every single line of code for this. Even drawn all the graphics. But, I wrote this many a years ago, and it works fully only in IE up to version 8... Although, I'm very proud of some of it, and even if it's an old project it still lives. And it was great fun writing it! Thanks for your assistance too! 
