    Posted: 30 Sep 2021 at 17:57
Hi,
I made the site https://personaldatahackathon.com based on the Sensode Black template
I integrated the  tarteaucitron functionality for cookies.
..... and then I tried to integrate a MailChimp form for suscription and automatic management of mail list and marketing automation.

Everything seems to work fine except that the scroll bar and the scroll function are lost after the MailChimp form is closed (whether filling it up or just closing it). If the page is reloaded everything works fine (and the MailChimp form does not apper again), but reloading the page does not come naturaly and the user may perceive the site is blocked and go elsewhere.

Any idea on how to restore the scroll bar and function after the form is closed?

Any guidance will be very welcome

Just tested your site and added an email in the screen.  Did not loose scroll bar nor scroll functionnality.

Did you get any error message in the console?

Anyway ...

I do recommend NOT to use green letters on a dark blue background.
I'm 82 soon, and it is verry hard for me to recognize those green? letters.
So I recommend bright(er) background (perhaps chamois), and dark letters.

I am clearing the cache beforehand, and I also test it in the private browsing. The point is that I cannot reproduce the error everytime, even if I clear the cache before.

I'll check the console

You might also use CSS to add a border around letters

Hobby001,
The effect is great, but it makes it heavier to read.
I understand that the color scheme chosen may lead to some people having trouble to read it. I will add a printable B&W version.

If someone is really interested they will read it. If not, I'd rather keep the "flashy" color scheme chose to attract certain demographics.

In any case, thanks so much for the suggestion

Getting back to the scroll blockage I still have not been able to reproduce the issue. It may be linked to the actual process that MailChimp makes to add the contents of the form.

The "funny" thing is that when one clears the cache the tarteaucitron process kicks in properly since it does not find the cookie.....but the mailchimp form does not. I don't know if MailChimp collects the IP or something, but it is a weird behaviour.
