No code scrolling on iPhone

with 2 comments

I wanted to have scrolling on my iPhone for code segments. It appeared simple. Change the style.css file by adding .code { overflow-x:scroll; }. I first tested it in Safari by setting User Agent to Mobile Safari 1.1.3 – iPhone, where it worked. Alas, it doesn’t work on my iPhone. A quick look at the iPhone simulator taught me it doesn’t work there either. It appears that horizontal scrolling is disabled on the iPhone.

That style sheet is found in the /public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/wptouch/themes/default directory. I’d love to have missed something. If there’s a trick to do it, let me know.

  1. Horizontal scrolling (using two fingers) works fine on the iPhone within at least the code examples in the Basic SQL Join Semantics entry. I think the “something missed” was the iPhone “two-finger scrolling” tip.

  2. That’s terrific! It took me a bit to coordinate those fingers of mine. Thanks Mark! 🙂
