John Vaughan - ...

Just posted a small website that works okay on Mozilla and IE, but exhibits
a non-functional artifact on Safari. Would appreciate any guidance in
troubleshooting/solving it.

Problem: Safari does not display scrollbars when page is bigger than
browser window

Environment: Am doing design work in Dreamweaver under Windows. My
client - and others w/ Safari browsers - report this dysfunction. I don't
have a Mac, so am "flying blind" on this one.

Possible culprits? This is a photo brochure site. I've used nested <div>
tags for layout of pics.

The site: http://www.rickdaccardiphotos.com/

Any help would be much appreciated.

John

Hi John - I tested it in Safari 2.0.4 and the scroll bars do appear when I
resize the page smaller than the content. Here's what I see:

Might want to play around with these services to render in Safari:

Hello John, I'm seeing the issue with scrolling only activating when the
window hits some part of the content div. I'd suggest two things.

Install the Web Developer addon for mozilla, turn on some of the Tools>Web
Developer > Information div stuff.
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/60/

Secondly I'm not a developer but I'd take a stab at making

<div id="content" style="position:relative; z-index:0">

a container for all the content, its currently centered and small and I'd
guess the scrollbars in safari are only coming on when the window sees
content inside the top div- a guess, but the nesting does seem to be the
problem.
