What is WordPress Infinite Scroll? 

If you are a user of social networks like Twitter or Facebook, even if you are used to browsing Google Images, you already know what I am talking about when saying infinite scroll.

It is a feature by which you do not have to click on links of the Next Page» type, but when you get to the bottom of a website page or post, it expands, showing more content, Infinitum.

Infinite scroll keeps our readers engaged with our content because when they reach the end of a post, they will have a new blog post without doing anything. Also, infinite scroll can help you if your website bounce rate is increasing. It will surely reduce the bounce rate.

Everything has pros and cons. So there are also some pros and cons too of infinite scroll:

Pros of Infinite Scroll 

  • You offer a navigation style that people who currently live on social networks are becoming more accustomed to, revitalizing your WordPress.
  • More time spent on your page since you already know how hard it is for the rock to click.
  • Faster access to your posts will give you more views of your content.
  • It works without adjustments in most themes.
  • Help to reduce bounce rate.

Cons of Infinite Scroll 

  • You do not see the footer practically, except for a few microseconds while it loads the next block automatically.
  • There is no way to cancel the scroll and return to the traditional method as a visitor. Remember to include a search engine, categories and stuff in the sidebar for the impatient.
  • If the visitor does not have Javascript activated in his browser, he will not see it.
  • Browser memory grows as it has to render a LOT of content in a single window.

What is the Read More Button? 

Reading more or continuing reading is a feature that helps readers to open or lead to a full blog post. 

Adding Text “read more” or “continue reading” with a link to WordPress is easy if your WordPress template follows the rules of good WordPress layout and functions, without touching a single line of code to put this button.

If, on the other hand, your theme does not seem to react to the different options that we are going to see below, it will be necessary to go to a more advanced option and modify some files of your template and style it with CSS to show the summary of your articles followed by a Read More».
