Stream Loading Buffer
Resolved

EasySocial "infinite scroll" stream "pagination" works great but i would make a small UX suggestion.

Currently the user must reach the page bottom and wait for the loading script to gather new stream items.

I am pretty familiar with a well-known "infinite scroll" javascript plugin where there was a setting in wich "bufferPx" (buffer pixels) can be defined.

Basically this will tell the ajax scrolling to fire quicker than page bottom (fire sooner, at certain pixels starting from page bottom)

This way, user will never have to wait at the page bottom for new content (new content is always loaded "outside" the user view), the experience is much more pleasant since there is no "scroll - stop/wait - scroll" experience wich feels laggy.

I don't know if this is currently possible, if can be achieved with a small hack to the source code, a template override, or it needs more complex code change / code development.

What do you guys think about it ?
