Solved Latest topics widget - how to have a scroll bar?

Post by jkh on July 20th 2017, 9:05 am

Hello everyone

I have a question please....

I have a 'Latest Topics' widget on my forum which I have set to 30 but it displays in a long list without a scroll bar.

I would like it to display like the one on this forum so that it has a scrolling bar.



This widget ^^ has 16 topics but only 4 is visible until you scroll down.

Here's my setting in the Admin Panel



I have tried reducing the height of the topics module but it doesn't work - the widget just stays the same.
I don't want the widget to scroll, I want it to stay static with a scroll bar like the one on this forum. If it were to scroll then it would take ages for the newest topic to come back into view.

Many thanks.

Hello skouliki

But won't that make the topics move up or down? I want them to remain static but with a scroll bar the same as on this forum...

eta: I've just tried activating the scroll bar which makes the module height correct - but it makes the topics move up whereas I want a scroll bar so that the topics remain static but you can scroll down, just like on this forum.

Thank you skouliki. I tried that, I changed the Portal template, changed the CSS code, but it's still the same - either a long list as I've got now or a moving widget - whereas I want a small static widget with scroll bar.

I've even tried changing the height of the Topics Module from 250 to 50, but that doesn't work either.

skouliki...you've got a static widget with a scroll bar on your forum, which is what I want. Would it be possible please for you to show me a screenshot of how your widget looks in the admin panel so i can compare?

Horrors! It's suddenly changed now to a static widget with a scroll bar but it looks horrible! And I can only see 3 topics whereas I'd rather see a few more - plus it's got a horrible grey border around it.

Thank you skouliki - I can see I'll have to practice a bit in my test forum to see if I can make it perfect. But for the time being I've changed it back to a long list as the revised widget looks horrible.

The one you've got on your forum looks really nice as it hasn't got a horrible border around it like mine did.

In fact your whole looks great, you've done a lot of work on that.
