Need the dropdown menu to scroll

Hi there,

I have seen this issue before in here, but the discussion was outdated, so I try here.

Does anyone know an easy way of making a dropdown that scrolls.  
I have a lot of categories on my site and the standard dropdown goes straight down out of sight to the bottom of the page. This means, that the site scroll but the dropdown does not...
If this can't be done by a beginner (like me), do you know a designer who can do this quickly for me?

Thank you,

Mette // www.minijacobi.dk

@Denis_A- I am sorry I spoke too soon, on a Mac the bar doesn't show up, is there a way to fix this?

Hi @MeghanBCLRca 

 

It looks fine on my end. Could you screenshot it, please?

Thank you for the fast response! Oh that's so odd, one of our team members sent me this photo, she can find it eventually when she hover over it, but it's not visible for her right off the bat.

@MeghanBCLRca 

This is default browser behavior (Safari), you can change it in the settings, just go to System Preferences > General > Show Scroll Bars: Set this to "Always".

This is not related to the code or your website at all 🙂

Hi @Denis_A ! I am having the exact same problem. I am using the theme Prestige. Can someone please help me put a scroll on my "Brands" list in the menu: https://sublimelife.in/

I have the same problem. Screens that are too small to accommodate the long dropdown just cuts it off and doesn't scroll. The sub-menus will scroll, but not the main dropdown.
I tried various versions of the code in this thread, but hasn't worked. Can anyone please provide me with code to scroll my dropdown menu 'Browse Categories' at: https://www.babiesafrica.com/
Please help?

Hi @Denis_A , 

I'm sorry to bother you here more than a year later but I've tried implementing similar code to the one you provided but I can't seem to make it work on my end.

Would you please be able to look into this and tell me what I'm missing? I'd like to have scrolling on "Shop by Categories" (level 1, no need for scrolling on level 2 / depth 2 items).

My store is: https://orka.ca/

Thank you so much Denis!
