IE8 filter gradient page wont scroll

Hi Guys,
I’ve just come across a strange problem in a website I’m working on where the IE filter (used on the body gradient) is stopping the pages from scrolling in IE8… the moment I remove the IE filter from the stylesheet the page scrolls perfectly. Any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this?

Also has anyone else worked out how to get VenoBox to work in IE8?


IE8 has no vertical scroll bar at any height. Don’t know why, yet, that’s why it isn’t scrolling.


Try adding this at the end of the IE8 only rules.


As a rule of thumb its better to avoid the IE filters because they take over the whole element and have many unwanted side effects.

Brilliant - thanks Paul! I will definitely keep that in mind for next time.
