This is one post you’re not going to want to simply “scroll” through.
After the migration to a more modern software platform, we now have the ability to update existing features more easily, while also creating new ways for you to share in the complete collecting experience.
The previous version of Pop Price Guide allowed you to see all of your items on one page. But if you had a few hundred items, you will also remember that it became slower and slower to load — for some users taking up to three minutes to appear.
That being said, it is nice to see more items and not have to click Next Page all the time. We’re looking into re-introducing something similar but at the same time much better – the Infinite Scroll!
What is nice about Infinite Scroll is that while you are looking at the first results, we can already download the next ones for when you want to continue scrolling. That will create less of a wait when you click on Next Page.
So we have three options for you –
Option 1 – Infinite Scroll coming to the Database Search
This allows you to search the PPG database on one infinite page. The benefit here is that if you’re searching Batman, for example, then you can easily scroll through to browse for the exact Dark Knight (we have more than 500!) that you’re looking for.
And if you are not using our extra features here you should! You could simultaneously look for items already in your Collection, or in your Wishlist, or which are for sale or a combination thereof!
Option 2 – Infinite Scroll coming to the Showcase
Viewing your collection via your Showcase will be super easy with the infinite scroll option. Same goes for scrolling through your Lists. If you have not already created your lists, here is more information on how to set them up.
Option 3 – No Infinite Scrolling, instead give me more items per page
Like the new system as is? Saying no thanks to infinite scrolling is also an option. We are planning to increase the number of items you can see per page.
The drawback of Infinite Scrolls are –
- No more footer (we only show our Copyright there and will move that elsewhere.)
- You’ll lose the ability to share a specific page of your Showcase using a URL. For example, under the current system, if you have an item on Page 4 of your Showcase, you’ll no longer be able to share the specific page URL with your friends and other collectors (but you can always change the search in the showcase to have the items you want to show up immediately).
