Infinite Scroll is now on the Adafruit blog, it automatically pulls the next set of posts into view when the reader approaches the bottom of the page. Adafruit does not take advertising, so we don’t care about page views, we thought this would be a great way to see more of what we post each day. In the last 30 days Adafruit sites hit over 6,293,282 page views and 1,577,728 visitors!
Previously we had next, back and numbered pages at the bottom. We’ll try this out and see how it works, enjoy!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Sort of like a corridor for postings!
Only problem is the footer keeps being pushed to the bottom of the page. If someone actually wanted to click on some of the links (such as your YouTube link, your RSS feed or the “contact” and “about us” links) they are out of luck.
The big problem is that it becomes so incredibly tedious to find really old stories. If you can’t find it by searching, you have to scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll until you give up in disgust. It is a lot easier to tap space a few time to scroll to the end of a long page, and then click next repeatedly.
I like it! So much better than hitting next when you are just browsing the last day or two. You guys are so productive with your postings that this happens more often than not.
The points the other comments make are valid too. Perhaps you can move the scrolling region to a center infinite scroll area (an iFrame as a quick hack), with the footer being permanently displayed. Of course a permanently displayed footer would have to be redesigned to minimize real estate / eye strain.
