Fix CTRL + Mouse Wheel not scrolling in Divi

Browsers often allow zooming of a web page by scrolling the mousewheel and holding down the CTRL button. By default, this will work on sites built with the Divi Theme. However, you may find that it no longer works on your Divi site, without an obvious reason. Here's how to fix it.

Disable "Smooth Scrolling" in the Divi Theme Options

If you can't zoom with the mousewheel, one possible explanation is that the following Divi setting has been enabled:

Divi > Theme Options > General > Smooth Scrolling

Divi says you can "enable this option to get the smooth scrolling effect with mouse wheel". However, in doing so, it seems to disable zooming with the mousewheel in combination with the control key. Disabling the setting should restore the mousewheel zoom. Note, though, that you'll lose the smooth scrolling effect.

  1. Yeah that is true, I almost edited head.php because of it. Then I tried Divi settings and dunno why I tried to disable smooth scroll.

    • Glad you got it, Jan. I think it took me some searching through Divi's code to figure it out and even then I didn't quite believe it 🙂
