Infinite Scroll & Related Threads

We are launching a new, simpler way to read YotaTech: Infinite Scroll.

Instead of needing to click "Next" in a thread to read additional pages, you will see a layout that automatically loads the next page of a thread as you scroll. We've also updated a few other parts of the layout so they remain easily accessible while you read, including access to thread search, a button to jump to the first unread post, and a Quick Reply box that lets you type a reply while scrolling through the thread content.

We're happy to answer any questions you may have about the new functionality of the site. If you would like to keep the standard thread view with separate pages, or simply want to remove related threads, head to the User CP > Edit Options page and simply disable “Infinite Scroll” or “Related Threads.”





**For users using the mobile template on their phones, I would like to add that the User CP option to disable infinite scroll and related threads does NOT apply to the mobile template.

I will have to try this new feature out! It looks useful!

Also, thanks for having the option to switch back. This can be useful if you prefer the old layout.

Would you please look into a way to disable infinite scroll for the mobile stylesheets?

I know there are several of us that it is an issue for due to poor memory management. For an example if I scroll through a few pages and want to reply with an image attached it's not going to work. Another example is picture heavy threads crash the browser after awhile of reading.

The work around I use is to jump to page X and close out the browser then restart it and it will pick up on that page with a smaller memory footprint.

^^ This is a good point. I have had these problems before too, but I just chalked that up to the fact I bought a cheap phone!

I don't use the mobile version much because I find it much easier to see things on a full-size computer screen.

We don't have plans to disable infinite scroll on mobile devices at this time.

We are adding more layers of separation between the thread you're in and the next thread you roll into for the mobile template to make sure users aren't confused or accidentally scroll into, but again, no plans for disabling infinite scroll on mobile at this time. We are continuously improving the mobile template to provide parity between it and the desktop template.
