Bootstrap Scroll Modal

Twitter Bootstrap's current modal has a fixed height and scrolls long content inside of it. This version of the plugin, along with some minimal CSS allows you to have a modal that acts more like Facebook and Trello modals, where the content can be any height and the whole page scrolls, rather than internal scrollbars in the modal.

How to Use

Simply use this version of the Modal Plugin rather than Twitter Bootstraps. It works exactly the same way the original plugin does. There are only minor differences which relate to how the HTML markup is inserted, which allows for the full page scroll.

Then include the Stylesheet. Ensure to include it AFTER bootstrap.css, as it overrides some of the modal classes found in it. You can also just add the minmal CSS to one of your project's CSS files, as long as it comes after Bootstrap.css.

In order to activate the new modal, set the "dynamic" option to "true". If the option is not set, the modal acts the same as it always has - allowing for full backward compatibility.


<a href="myModal" data-toggle="modal" data-dynamic="true">Launch the awesome modal</a>


$("#myModal").modal({ dynamic: true });

Cross-Browser Tested

I've tested the modal on IE7+, Safari, Firefox 4+ and Chrome. Let me know if you find any compatibility issues.
