It isn't possible to add a scroll bar to a paragraph for two reasons:
 

1. It isn't advised in modern web design.
2. It will not work good on touch devices, ie. iPad, iPhone. You should have only one scroll bar in your website, and it should be the site scroll-bar without inner-scrolls.
 

Please note that you can try to add a scroll bar by adding CSS to the HTML code. A tutorial is available at w3schools here
Also note that we cannot provide support for custom code that you are embedding into your website.

    Scroll option for lists, reviews or other content.

    I would really love a SCROLL OPTION. I need to use it example for: 

    - My event lists, so people see 3 upcoming events, but are also able to scroll throughout the rest.

    - My "What people say about,.." list where I don't need to display al the reviews but people can just choose if they want to.

    When will this option be on air?? I hope ASAP!
    Thank you
    kind regards
