SOLVED: Popup disables scrolling when in viewport

How do I allow scrolling when a popup is open? I am using a popup to show a cookie notice, but scrolling is disabled when the popup is open. How do I change this behavior?

EDIT: Scrolling works fine when previewing the template but not when on a live page.

There is likely an overlay which you could push back using z-index. My guess is that the overlay in yours is transparent so you can’t see it but if you inspect the element in preview mode, then an overlay is hovering above your page behind the pop-up.

Custom add CSS to that overlay and you should be able to hide it. I’ve seen this with other sites and themes before. Usually the best remedy.

Hi Emmanuelson,
Thanks so much for your report!

Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to allow scrolling. But this will be implemented as soon as possible :slight_smile:

Hello,
I am experiencing the same problem in 1.9.8 that the body of the page scrolls instead of the content in the popup.

The scrolling works when we click-hold-scrollbar and scroll but on mouse scroll, the body of the page scrolls.

Is there a fix for this, thankyou
