How to Use The Scrollable WordPress Shortcode and Elementor Widget

Scrollable is a content tool we've introduced as part of our 'Blocks' module, and downline to Yabber's parent Contentus module. Scrollable simply allows you to include blocks of content in a scrollable window for those cases where you choose to contain large amounts of text in a smaller contained area. An option to render a checkbox that, when checked, immediately redirects the user to another page makes the tool suitable for those cases where you would like a user to accept terms and conditions before showing them a particular page or resource.

While the feature is generally an Elementor tool, the styles themselves are optionally defined in Yabber. You will find the Scrollable option by navigating to the Contentus module (via the small cube in the Website menu).

Scrollable in Yabber

  Pictured: You will find the Scrollable option by navigating to the Contentus module (via the small cube in the Website menu). You will also find Scrollable links in general Yabber menus.

  The Result

A general example is provided below with only basic options applied. The optional checkbox will redirect you back to this page (in reality you'll obviously redirect a user elsewhere). We've sued the shortcode of [scrollable c="63624" url="https://www.beliefm .. mentor"] (URL truncated for readability).

This is an example of a Scrollable window. In this particular example we've used a smaller font size and line height but in most cases the font will default to that used on your page. We've also applied a border and a redirect checkbox (it redirects back to this page but the expectation is that you'll redirect to a new page or form).

All elements of this Scrollable window are customisable, and not unlike any other Block element, media and shortcodes may be applied.

Scrollable was introduced for a number of reasons. First and foremost it's just a funky tool that's available to you, but it was also a compliance consideration. In talks with a group quite recently they indicated that they were obligated to provide an entry disclaimer whenever an online application was commenced.

The Scrollable window may be dragged into any position of your page with our Elementor block or via the use of shortcode.

The scroll handle and background may also be customised.

Yes, shortcodes are complicated. The Elementor block mitigates the complexity and makes it simple.

  Scrollable Styles in Yabber

You may create styles in Yabber but content is always created on your website. the facility to create styles completely bypasses the need to mess around with shortcode attributes, meaning you simply reference a style in your shortcode and nothing else (with exception of the content, of course).

Unchecking the 'Apply a Checkbox Redirect' checkbox will hide those options.

Once you have created your style or styles, you should send them to your website via the 'Send' panel.

  Scrollable Elementor Widget

If this FAQ has done nothing else, it has exposed you to a large number of Scrollable options - most of which can be ignored. However, when using Elementor, the style and presentation options are very easily applied. Search for 'Scrollable' in Elementor. It is normal to select a Yabber style rather than use a static style created in Elementor - this way your styles can be globally updated in Yabber.

Following are just a few screenshot examples of styled containers. Various Elementor options are shown for reference, with the last three showing the checkbox option.

Example Scrollable Window

  Pictured: This example shows a naked design with no styling applied (with the exception of the default style applied to the scrollbar and handle).


Example Scrollable Window

  Pictured: The second example introduces a green margin and we've widened the scrollbar handle and removed the radius (curvature).


Example Scrollable Window

  Pictured: the third option is more of a 'default' style. It includes a black border and footer, with a redirect option applied.


Example Scrollable Window

  Pictured: The fourth example reintroduces the curve to the scrollbar handle, styles the border and footer in red, and we've applied a background colour to the scrollbar track. The screenshot shows how the red and light yellow colours were selected.


Example Scrollable Window

  Pictured: The final example applies a background colour to the blind container. The colur of the scrollbar handle may obviously differ from the frame colour; we've applied the same only because it looks better.

The examples are styled for illustrative purposes only - they're not palettes we'd ever use.
