Thread: Who's up for testing a new feature? :)

  1. #1

    Who's up for testing a new feature? :)

    If you have a semi-modern browser, head over here and scroll to the bottom of the page. You should see a Forum Skin section similar to the attached image.

    Choose "Infinite Scroll" from the list and click to Save Changes.

    Now, browse the forums like you normally would and enjoy your experience.

    Note: this feature requires Javascript to be enabled.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    In Firefox (with posts in Descending order), the next page of posts/threads/results should autoload when you get near the page bottom without you having to click.

    I'm about to test IE.

    not too many times I need to hit older pages though.

    Thanks. IE8/Win is a massive fail. (Using the YUI framework, no less.)

    You don't like scrolling back through the Politics threads?

    I went ahead and changed my number of posts per page to 10--it was at 150 because I often need to read back more than the default number of posts per page (20).

    One spot where it may help you: it autoloads the next page when you click New Posts. So, instead of having 3 or more pages to scroll through, you only have one.

    Oooh, good thought, I like that one.

    eta: I just tried FF on Mac, it works, but seems to autoload slower than Safari. Which is weird 'cause I usually find FF to be way faster on things.

    Consider this a beta.

    It's using the Yahoo framework that vBulletin developers adopted, which may run faster on Safari.

    Oh my, I've just tried this, and I think it's great!
    Admittedly, I don't often go through all of a thread at once, but it'll be useful to me sometimes.

    Safari seems to have better overall performance when using CSS3 selectors, which is what was needed to make this work. Chrome should be fast, too.
