Missing horizontal scroll bars on Clarion

Hi there

Despite playing around with the template width, I can't get horizontal scroll bars to appear and have to manually drag out the browser window. Vertical bars work ok.
The discussion has been resolved.

    Thanks for the screenshot. I can see what you mean now - the width of the ja-wrapper only fits the viewport window size. Specifying the width to the snippet above should do the trick:
    body#bd #ja-wrapper {
    	overflow: visible;
    	width: 100%;
    	min-width: 1000px;

    I do not quite understand what you're trying to achieve here - is your site online or could you provide a screenshot of the affected page?
    By default (and by design), there should be no horizontal scroll bars on the page.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. The site is:
    Maybe I'm missing something here, but with the Neutrino template when you resize the window the horizontal scroll bars appear to aid with navigation around the page. With Clarion they do not and the window has to be dragged out to see all the content.
    (J! 2.5)
    I hope this is a bit clearer?

    Ah - thanks for the explanation. I do see what you mean now.

    The T3 framework actually prevents the horizontal scrollbar from appearing (I have no idea why!) I do not recall it to be the case previously though.

    However, this can easily be fixed by adding the following snippet to the bottom of the template.css file:
    body#bd #ja-wrapper {
    	overflow: visible;

    This file should be located under: /templates/tr_clarion/css/template.css and can be edited directly from the Joomla administrator.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for that Zahir.
    The fix worked but introduced a new problem. it looks like the wrapper bg colour is sized at the initial size of the window.When you use the scroll bar to move to the right for example the body bg colour takes over! Is this to do with the browser auto detection feature?
    Attached is a screen shot.

    Hi twodogs - no screenshot attached. I'd like to see what you're referring to.
    Also, please let me know what OS/browser you're experiencing this on.

    I've attached again

    Chrome and Firefox on Mac Lion


    I browsed ,and attached the tiff image and then clicked Submit - has this worked?

    Nope, it didnt attach :(
    I checked the forum settings and tiff was an allowed extension. I've enabled tiff uploads (and testing it with this post). Please do try again, and sorry for the inconvenience!

    Hi Zahir

    If you want to try this link:

    I can't see what I'm doing wrong here!

    That's perfect. Thanks for all the great support :D

    On a separate note can you confirm the Business template is J!2.5? If so I'll try and have a go at that!
    (and try not to break it)

    Great - I'm glad that fixed it. Let me know if you need any other assistance :)

    Yes, Business 2.0 is compatible with Joomla 2.5. Also, just as a heads-up, there will be another new responsive joomla template available within the next few days..
