"FT Desktop Infinite Scroll" feature for desktop viewing introduced Jan 2017

NOTE: Selecting the Mobile Skin / display format will activate Infinite Scroll.

Opting out of "FT Desktop Infinte Scroll" skin:

To opt out, you can see this post or just go to

My FlyerTalk->Edit Options->Thread Display Options->“Disable Desktop Infinite Scroll”

Click the check box and click SAVE CHANGES.

If infinite scroll is set to default style and you keep reverting to infinite scroll:

So, with that said, you'll need to go into the "My Options" page and both disable infinite scroll and change your default style/skin to FT Desktop ..also don't forget to save!



Hope this helps!

For those with Greasemonkey, a simple script for you. You no needing to be logged in for this to be effective.

Here you go:


Code:
 // ==UserScript==
 // @name        Flyertalk_Remove_Infinite_Scroll
 // @match       *://*.flyertalk.com/*
 // @run-at      document-start
 // @grant       none
 // ==/UserScript==
 
 var oldUrlPath  = window.location.pathname;
 
 /*--- Test that "?styleid=17" is at end of URL, excepting any "hashes"
 or searches.
 */
 if (window.location.href.toString().indexOf("?styleid=17") != -1) return false;
 if ( ! /\?styleid=17$/.test (oldUrlPath) ) {
 
 var newURL  = window.location.protocol + "//"
 + window.location.host
 + oldUrlPath + "?styleid=17"
 + window.location.search
 + window.location.hash
 ;
 /*-- replace() puts the good page in the history instead of the
 bad page.
 */
 window.location.replace (newURL);
 }

I personally can reproduce it every time. It's very annoying.

Nevermind. I guess I somehow got switched to the mobile view on my desktop. Weird.

I can’t believe this is still not fixed and there is no way (none of the suggestions above appear in my settings or options page) to opt out of this or even click at the bottom to go to the desktop version. This is why people are abandoning the site or at least using less (too hard to search and constant issues like this)

I don't see a way to disable infinite scroll on the new interface.

Hi, this is still happening, do you know if it's been acknowledged? Or just very hard to fix?

Yes I was recently able to find the underlying cause and I updated them with that information

OK, I have the opposite problem. I have infinite scroll enabled (I'm one of the rare ones that likes this) and while it does do the infinite scroll, the page count at the bottom doesn't update as you scroll. I can go to the last page of a post and it will still say "Page 1 of 4" but when I click Last it goes to the last post, which I've already seen.

They're related, so solving the original problem should also fix this.

Is there a reason some punctuation doesn’t seem to load on the mobile version of the site? Apostrophes, three periods in a row… If I refresh, then it seems to appear…

Mobile version:


Desktop paginated/non-infinite version:

I've just been searching threads for information/update on infinite scroll on mobiles and I assume you still can't turn it off (only desktop)?

If that is the case then it's a shame as I do the majority of my browsing on my mobile and for that reason I barely use this site as it's so painful to read threads as it constantly jumps around. Major fail IMO.
