You'll need to use a client-side language like javascript to check on the user's scrolling. Some thing like this:

window.onscroll = function() { if(window.scrollY >= (document.body.offsetHeight - window.innerHeight)) { /* request more content probably using AJAX */ } };

I'm not sure if there's a way to do this only using PHP.

AJAX will be needed if you want to do this I think, unless there is a way to do this in PHP but I have never seen something like it. Christopher is right.

good good...i did it :)

thanks for helping
