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!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

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.
