Infinite scrolling – sounds crazy, but actually the future of the web. And, the one to get this is WordPress.com sites. The famous blogging platform has introduced this new feature for WordPress.com home pages. Here’s what Lance Willett had to say on the WordPress.com blog:
Say hello to the future of reading content on the web. Introducing a new feature for WordPress.com home pages, infinite scrolling.
It’s amazing, really—instead of the old way of navigating down a page by scrolling and then clicking a link to get to the next page, and waiting for a page refresh—infinite scrolling pulls the next set of posts automatically into view when the reader approaches the bottom of the page. Speed and performance are key: new content loads in quickly without a full page reload.
See this in action on Matt on Not-WordPress—Matt’s moblog. When you get to the bottom of the page, you’ll see a loading icon display briefly as the next posts load below.
