Hi - I am having an issue with the mobile view of my website. If you are viewing the home page or contact page (it only does it for the home page and contact pages) on your phone, and scroll to the right, the whole page moves over and there is a blank space to the right of the page that runs all the way down the screen. I know this has something to do with the coding I found on the internet that allows me to have a banner that scales rather than get cropped. The coding worked great except for this one issue!

Anybody know how I can fix this without getting rid of the coding I used for the banner?

Thanks for any help.

This will happen if your CSS causes elements to "overflow" outside of the site "container". You can usually hide this overflow by adding the following to Design > Custom CSS but bear in mind that it is only hiding the issue - it is not fixing it. You can find out more about overflow-x in this guide.

For a more permanent fix, you can check through each line of custom code to see if it is causing the issue.

body {
  overflow-x: hidden;
  overflow-x: clip !important;
}
