I have an online shop with a range of categories. On the mobile view, I have an issue that the categories are listed horizontally and customers are making it clear that it's not obvious that you can scroll to the right to view additional categories. The image I attached shows a scroll bar but that doesn't show on an actual phone (screenshot from desktop editor).

Does anyone know of alternative setups for the categories on mobile? Dropdown would probably work.

See below for the shop url. My guess is that a dropdown would be the most effective. What do you think after looking at the page?



To Website > Website Tools > Code Injection > Footer > Then check again on real mobile

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.7.0/jquery.min.js"></script>  
$(document).ready(function() {
  var catItem = $('.category-item .category-link:not(.child)');
  var itemTag = $(catItem).html();
  var catDrop = "<select name='Categories' id='categories' class='catDrop'>";
  if (itemTag !== undefined) {
    catItem.each(function(i) {
      var fixLoc = $(this).html().trim().replace(/\s+/g, '-').replace(/&/g, '').replace('amp;', '').replace('--', '-').toLowerCase();
      catDrop = catDrop + '<option value=' + fixLoc + '>' + $(this).html() + '</option>';
    catDrop = catDrop + "</select>";
  var urlCat = window.location.href.split("/shop/")[1];
  if (urlCat !== undefined) {
    var fixCat = urlCat.replace(/\%27/g, "'")
  $(".catDrop").change(function() {
    if ($(this).val() == "all") {
      window.location = "/shop/";
    } else {
      window.location = "/shop/" + $(this).val();
@media screen and (max-width:767px) {
nav.category-filter-wrapper {
    display: none;
