Live Scrolling (the Property List page)

We've added this page to explain to existing users how the new Live Scrolling feature works, as it's a departure from the older method that used paging to show multiple properties.

In 5.6 we added the new Live Scrolling feature, which means that after the initial search results are found, when a user scrolls down to the bottom of the page, more properties are added to the bottom of the list. This is quicker than forcing users to move from page to page to change the property list, and makes it easier for users to compare properties.

The property list is still subject to the Site Config Search options settings "Random search limit" and "Business List limit". The first sets the limit to the total number of properties found during a random search, the second dictates the number presented on the page when the page is rendered. The Random Search Limit must be higher than the Business List Limit.

When a user scrolls down the page the javascript in the page detects how far a user is from the bottom of page. When the user gets to X pixels from the bottom of the page then another property is added to the list. In most situations this is fine, but if you have a large footer, or other modules at the bottom of the page, then it's possible that it will appear that the list isn't updating. That's because the user isn't scrolling down far enough, so you'll need to either modify the modules/footer (the easier solution) or modify /jomres/javascript/list_properties.js and find the line that says

if (jomresJquery(window).height() + jomresJquery(window).scrollTop() >= jomresJquery(document).height()-300) {

The 300 in this line is the height above the bottom of the page that the user must be before the javascript will find the next property to add to the bottom of the list. You will need to change this figure to something that suits your site.
