My theme has just become enabled with infinite scrolling, which I am certainly happy about (especially given that it is optional), and am certainly planning to leave enabled at this point. I think it could be pretty cool!
However, a bug I have noticed.
Polls are no longer visible, nor even an indication that they are missing/hidden. On my blog, if you scroll down to the posts made between April 30 and May 4, there were about 6-7 polls in these posts that are no longer visible (unless you know to click on the post itself to display it, and the comments). I'd suggest that is a bug, given all other content is preserved from the old display format to the infinite scroll format.
Is there a way around this, is this the new reality, or something that will get rectified?
I have also noticed an inconsistency with how Google search (particularly image search) works with a blog with infinite scroll enabled, but I haven't been able to duplicate the event - was on an iPad so that may be very relevant, so will investigate and report separately if I can duplicate it.
Curious - does infinite scroll break the websites that turn blogs into books?
I wonder, if I infinitely scroll, does the front page become infinitely bigger so I will get to a point where I have 1000s of images etc all visible at once and slow the system down? Just how far back can someone scroll before it becomes an issue? What happens if I scroll and scroll and scroll, until the front page is huge, then hit the print button?
Lots of things to explore this new reality!
The blog I need help with is stusshed.com.
