Allow Scrolling in Non-Touch Mobile Devices?

I love the extension and have used it for the first time to create a mobile version of a website I put together.

However...the content of the panels extends beyond the panel size (height) and with touch enabled phones, it's easy to scroll down to view the content. The probelm is, when someone accesses the site with an older phone without touch capabilities, they can't scroll down to see the entire content.

Is it possible to add some sort of nav (scroll arrows or something) so those non-touch phones can see the information on the site?

penningtontax.com is the clients site. If you access it with a phone, it'll automatically re-direct you the mobile version. If it doesn't, the mobile version is simply at penningtontax.com/mobile.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Hi bobby,

First you ca try setting the sliding panels width and height to 100% www.dmxzone.com/go?17798

Then you can position two buttons up/down and use them with the scroll to/go to Anchor behaviors

Yeah I tried that already. It didn't help. It's a problem in the "Services" tab of the mobile site. It would actually be great if I could just allow each "tab" to stretch fully in height and not scroll at all.

I just re-built the mobile version from scratch using DW behaviors to hide/show divs and was able to expand the pages so non-touch devices can scroll down and see all of the information.

While this extension is great for displaying things in a horizontal way, I don't suggest using it for a complete website.

Thanks For Your Reply Anyway,

Bobby
