I've got an issue with the popup windows that display when I click on the book cover images(from a widget) in my sidebar: there are two vertical scrollbars instead of one. Any idea why this is happening and how I may get rid of one of the scrollbars?

Here's a screenshot:

Two scrollbars

Here's my site: WordPress Blog

Looking at your site, the double scrollbars are caused by two things:

  1. The iframe
  2. The CSS declarations applied to a <div>

Your iframe has the scrolling="auto" property set. Change this to scrolling="no" to turn off the scroll bar.

Also, your containing lightbox div (<div id="LT_LB">) has its overflow property set to "auto." Set this to "hidden" to remove the scroll bar.

Ack! I think this is going to be beyond me. The pop ups are from a text widget with the following code: <div id="wb4e442f139e10a7c3e619139c29f8b45"></div><script type="text/javascript" charset="UTF-8" src="librarything.com/…; ></script><noscript><a href="librarything.com/profile/jchen147">My Library</a> at <a href="librarything.com">LibraryThing</a></…; There doesn't seem to be a way for me to edit the scrolling for the iframe on my end since the original widget is from a third party. – evie Feb 14 '12 at 23:15
In that case, I recommend you contact the third party (possibly LibraryThing?) directly and ask them for support ... – EAMann Feb 14 '12 at 23:24
Another comment: I don't have this double scrollbar issue with the Librarything pop up on another WordPress blog I made for a class project using a different theme. So I think this is also theme-related. – evie Feb 14 '12 at 23:26
The one thing I see that could be theme related is the LT_LB div. As I say above, you've got overflow set to auto. If you set overflow to "hidden," one of the scrollbars disappears. – EAMann Feb 14 '12 at 23:40
