Let’s learn how to make Divi mobile menu scroll on devices

Why would you need to know how to make Divi menu scroll on devices? Most of the time the mobile menu behaves perfectly in Divi. Now and then there is a scrolling issue on bigger devices that aren’t actual mobiles.

Here’s some background. When we use a mobile menu it is designed to collapse into the hamburger menu and pop open when the hamburger icon is clicked. The hamburger is the name often given to describe the icon with 3 horizontal lines. Traditionally used on mobile view, however, when a menu is long, we set the menu to be the mobile kind on narrow desktops and tablets too.

To fix this we add a few line of code to the CSS styles.

Divi > Theme Options > General > CSS

mobile menu scroll

Copy and paste the code below into the CSS area on your Divi website.
We founds more information on this issue at Tompai Pro.

/** MOBILE MENU SCROLL **/
.et_mobile_menu {
overflow: scroll !important;
max-height: 84vh; /*edit this to match your view height*/
}

There is also a solution to collapse the nested elements on the Menu if you prefer them to NOT all be visible.
