Currently, Wix does not support adding a scroll bar to text boxes due to the
following reasons:

* It isn't advised in modern web design.
* It will not work well on touch devices such as iPads and iPhones.
* It is advisable to have only one scroll bar on your site, and it should be the site scroll-bar.

If your site content is longer than your site visitor's viewport height, the
browser automatically adds vertical scrollbars.

As an alternative, you can try adding CSS to the HTML element. A tutorial is
available at w3schools here.


We are unable to provide support for external HTML codes that are added to Wix
sites as the codes have not been tested by Wix. Learn More
