Is it possible to make entries automatically appear in an invisible scroll box?

If so, can somebody please share a code /or tell me how?

Thank you in advance!

I don't understand. The last time I posted a question in the support forum, you moved it to the subforum, now that I have posted in the subforum (like you wanted me to) you have moved it back to the support forum.

If I am not mistaken, the subforum is also a place to post questions, so must there be so many forums?

I'm really confused & my posting in the wrong section is unintentional. I'm not an idiot.

I don't know where you first posted this topic, but the Blogger Support forum is for topics that haven't been resolved yet. The subforum up top is for Blogger issues that have been answered/the original poster never came back to let us know if we'd helped them enough, so that's why they're closed. Moderators close resolved topics and move them to the Resolved subforums to make the forums neater.

What do you mean by invisible scrollbox? Invisible like the scrollbar doesn't appear?

I don't recall the issue being resolved - But thank you, Tokyo for explaining that to me. I'll be sure to post any unresolved issues in the Support Forum next time...

I did mean an invisible scrollbox, by not having any customized color in background or scroll bar (or anything, other than text)

I'm not sure if it was important for me to mention this, but just in case there was a code, & the code happened to be a visible box - I wouldn't know how to change this, which would lead to further questions.

Because the blog that it is being used for has limited space for entries, I'd like to know if it is possible to add it either into a scroll, or alternatively, a second page option...? I think a scrollbox is a little less complicated...

You originally posted the topic in the resolved section of Blogger Support so I moved it to Blogger Support. S'all good.

I've tried searching online, but I'm not having any luck - I've found tutorials on scroll boxing each entry, but that's not what I want. I want all of my entries together in one scroll box.

I don't want it to look like a scroll box, I want it to blend with the background, either just the arrows, or the bar, to indicate further entries below...

I think I know what you're getting at. Unfortunately, having an "invisible" scroll bar is only possible in Internet Explorer. All other browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, and etc. don't support that feature. However, you can have an "invisible" scroll bar in all browsers if you use Javascript (I would think, since I know you can change the colors and style and whatnot using it). However, I'm not sure if you can use custom Javascript on Blogger.

Also, is there a specific container name that holds all the entries? If so, you could just specify a set height and set an automatic overflow. For example:

Let's say we have a DIV container with an ID of entries that holds all the DIV containers which contain the content of each entry post. So, let's say the markup is something like:
CODE
<div id="entries">
<div>
Here is the entry content for this entry.
</div>

<div>
Here is the entry content for this entry.
</div>

<div>
Here is the entry content for this entry.
</div>

<div>
Here is the entry content for this entry.
</div>
</div>


You'd have to do something like (CSS-wise):
CODE
div#entries {
height: 600px;
overflow: auto;
}


And as far as the Javascript goes, you'd have to check if it's allowed. If it is, you can try searching online for different codes that would suit your fancy.
