To Infinity and Beyond

The WordPress.com Blog

Say hello to the future of reading on the web. We’re happy to introduce a new feature for WordPress.com home pages: infinite scrolling.

Speed and performance are key on the modern web: new content loads in quickly without a full page reload. Instead of the old way of navigating down a page by scrolling and then clicking a link to get to the next page, waiting for a page refresh — the document model of the web — infinite scrolling pulls the next set of posts automatically into view when the reader approaches the bottom of the page, more like an application.

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.

Back? Now that you are drooling along with the rest of us at the wondrous food photos…

After you have connected, your new posts will be shared on Tumblr and no other action is needed.

We also have a Tumblr sharing button you may not have seen, which can be displayed at the bottom of your posts and pages. With this enabled, your readers can share your posts on their own Tumblr blogs quickly and easily. Visit your Settings…
