Infinite scrolling

Administrator
Before "hibernating" myself into a full month of studying I have managed to finish the early development of Endless, a new plugin requested by @Tac (Infinite Scrolling) which brings infinite scrolling to MyBB's forums and threads. For more informations, read Endless preview.

The plugin has been activated here on MyBBoost: test it by browsing long threads such as Flyover 2.3 and MyFacebook Connect 3.5, and forums of course.

The implementation resembles Flarum's one, the skeleton is built upon their code with specific adjustments for MyBB. There are still some issues which I need to sort out but it looks very promising. I'm still uncertain if it will be a premium plugin or a free one.

I take this opportunity to wish you merry Christmas and happy holidays.

I'm very much excited for this. Whether premium or free this will be a great addition to MyBB forums.

Thank you @"Clark Richard". Still not perfect, but definitely great to see that it works fine.

What's good about regular pagination is being able to quickly jump through the pages, with infinite scroll I'd have to keep scrolling to get to the last reply. Infinite scrolling looks a lot better than regular pagination but I think its functionality will get tedious, that's unless you've made a work around for this.

Would love to know, thanks Shade.

^ If Shade continues the route of Flarum, we will have something much nicer than regular pagination. Here is the work around (innovation imo) they used https://u.nya.is/gnkgms.mp4

Yes, that's the plan.

The scrubber: a Flarum piece of art


After some troubleshooting and reverse engineering, I could write down the early version of the scrubber by adapting Flarum's implementation to a MyBB friendly one. The result is an exact copy of Flarum's infinite scrolling concept; it will be changed in the future, but it brilliantly serves as a proof-of-concept for the moment.

A "scrubber" is a draggable item which lets you jump between posts easily while providing an infinite scrolling experience. Test it by browsing any thread.
