Wow, this deserves more recognition than just repl.it! Amazing! Also, might I recommend disabling the overflow by using overflow:hidden; on the body? The ability to scroll makes it feel weird.

Hey @Baconman321! thanks for the positive feedback and suggestion. Yes, that's a good idea. I see what you mean. I will take a look at it later on :)

@RolandJLevy It's really easy, just put in the header:


That's all there is too it!
If you already have an overflow attribute, you'll have to override it with !important.

Either way, it's a really great project!

Hi @Baconman321, thanks for the CSS :) I don't want to apply the overflow:hidden on the first page so I'll need to create a new class so I can apply it on the second page. I'm a bit busy right now so will be sorting it out later tonight :)

Hi @Baconman321, I have applied the overflow:hidden on the snowflakes page, as you suggested and I think it's a good improvement. Thanks again for your suggestion :)
