If you are a seasoned Drupalista you can skip this section.

Installation of the Neat Scrollbar module can be done using the Drush command 'drush dl neat_scrollbar', followed by 'drush en neat_scrollbar'. This will prompt you to install the Libraries API module, if not already there. If you aren't using Drush from the command line, you can download the module from it's Project Page and move it into your 'sites/all/modules' folder, or through your Drupal site's modules administration section.

The main purpose of this section is to provide details of the relevant jQuery plugins and other files, which are required to be installed in the 'sites/all/libraries/neat_scrollbar' folder. If you don't have the libraries folders, you should create them and ensure that you give them the appropriate file/folder permissions.


The mCustomScrollbar plugin is provided together with various other example files. It is recommended that you only download the files listed under "Installation" below. Conveniently, you can obtain all of the files required (including the Mouse Wheel jQuery Plugin) in the following repository folders:

MCustomScrollbar Minified Version
MCustomScrollbar Uncompressed Version
MCustomScrollbar CSS
Buttons PNG

The 'neat_scrollbar' library folder should contain the following files:

jquery.mCustomScrollbar.min.js - required for loading of minified version.
jquery.mCustomScrollbar.css - required for scrollbar themes & styles.
mCSB_buttons.png - required for buttons/arrows.
jquery.mCustomScrollbar.js - required for extraction of library version.

If you don't already have the jQuery Mouse Wheel plugin installed and wish to use it with this module, you should ensure that it is installed in the following folder:


The 'mousewheel' library folder should contain the following file:


Once you've completed the installation steps, you should visit your status report to check that everything is installed correctly.
