Comment (by x2048):

 Thank you for fixing it. I can confirm that the site now scrolls.

 I would note, though, that the scrollbar is not visible on my machine.
 It's usable, but probably suboptimal.
 Upon further inspection, this can be fixed by removing "position: fixed"
 on the same element that had the unusual overflow behavior.


 @media (min-width: 782px) {
 .edit-post-layout__content {
     bottom: 0;
     height: auto;
     left: 0;
     margin-left: 160px;
     min-height: calc(100% - 88px);
     /* position: fixed; */ // remove this one
     right: 0; // Probably those, too
     top: 88px;


 After I removed that line, the overflow-y line didn't even need to be
 changed anymore.
 I don't know why that element was fixed, so I don't know what un-fixing it
 would break. Seems fine, though. Maybe some padding needs to be removed
 from elements at the top of the page to keep the page looking the same as
