Auto expand page

I was wondering if it is possible to automatically expand/extend the page to display more info when one get to the bottom of the page.

Instead of having to click on "Get More Records" it should be done automatically. It would help with the general use experience. An example can be found at http://www.joomlart.com/joomla/templates/showcase. #suggestions

(1) I have noticed that the story update stream is not updated automatically, right?

It would be also great if you could add an auto-refresh/-update function (without the need to reload the page).

(2) Would it be also possible to mark new updates by changing the background color of these postings and to change the background color back to standard "white" in case of an "mouse over" event. That way you get the information that the user has seen this posting and that it isn't new anymore?

And what if I want to reach the links in the bottom?
Should I scroll and scroll in a endless-loop?!

If I scroll to the bottom and get more records automatically then I have to scroll again and again to reach links in the bottom or to reach the footer,

Ah it's true:). never thought about that :). Maybe we don't need the auto expand by default, how hard is it to just click on the link. Off course on the template override anyone (template designers) can add the behavior they want. maybe we should leave that up to them

Maybe only once but not every time.

The usability issue with the auto expand is that people wont be able use the modules in the footer and mainbottom positions.
I like the feature of having an autoload at the end of the stream and with it a limit or delay in the auto load.
