Recently we announced the addition of Infinity Scroll technology to our "Card: Summary" block. Thanks to the great feedback we have received so far, we are adding this feature to another block, "Card: Grid."
Like "Card: Summary," the "Card: Grid" block has a new block configuration property called "content discovery" which features the "Infinity Scroll" choice. When enabled, this will cause the block to create an Infinity Scroll grid that continues to show new stories—with the same block parameters—as the user scrolls down the page.
The ability to offer this type of content discovery as a block opens up several new design and engagement options, such as:
- Index pages: Adding the grid block with Infinity Scroll to index pages so users easily and endlessly scroll through new stories.
- Front pages: Adding a grid block with Infinity Scroll to the bottom of the front page so additional stories continue to load.
- Article pages: Adding the grid block with Infinity Scroll to the bottom of article pages to offer up new content as the user scrolls.
To enable this new functionality, simply go to the "Content Discovery" section of the block in the appearance tab. Then choose Infinity Scroll.
