WordPress.com developers have added a new feature to their blogging platform.
Blogs hosted on their platform now feature infinite scrolling. This means that readers would no longer have to press the next or previous buttons to read more content. As they scroll down, more content would be automatically loaded.
This feature can however be disabled if you want the old fashioned links to load more content.
WordPress.com developers said:
We’ve taken care of all the small details with infinite scrolling, integrating with your theme design as seamlessly as possible and supporting sites with footer widgets. We’ve also refined the basic footer appearance; as you scroll down a subtle footer pops up containing your blog title, which readers can click to scroll back up.
We’ve also automatically enabled the click-to-load button for blog posts where there might be important information in footer widgets, so your visitors always have access to the entirety of your content. The number of posts loaded with the button can be changed in your “Blog pages show at most” reading setting.
