Infinite scroll has become a standard feature in many web applications. Twitter and Facebook are the ones I use every day, but it’s also in a ton of Tumblr themes and Cargo Collective sites.
I feel WordPress themes has been slow to adopt infinite scroll- but after adding it to my site over the weekend I understand some of the complications.
The Infinite Scroll plugin recently had a complete rewrite, and I can now recommend using it again. If you use the plugin you should be able to set up infinite scroll for your theme in just a couple minutes.
I’ll also posted a tutorial about how to add Infinite Scroll to a theme without a plugin.
