Comments on: There’s the More button now, but how do you get back? http://designnotes.info/?p=1789 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: Sean A http://designnotes.info/?p=1789&cpage=1#comment-99498 Wed, 27 May 2009 19:01:08 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1789#comment-99498 The show more button is not a reworking of pagination, which is the problem. Its a whole separate method of displaying data, but users expect it to hold the behavior of traditional pagination. In your example, someone had a problem when clicking away and returning because they expected it to behave like when you press back from one page to a previous page.

The only real problem I can imagine is when you are looking for an old tweet which you know is beyond x amount of pages. In the old system you could select a page number and start from there. I guess Twitter is insisting on the limited relevancy of tweets by allowing you to choose your own depth of recent tweets rather than providing x amount of pages of archives.

The ajax style 'more' is interesting in twitter's case because often there is no 'back' or at least it's changed quite a bit since the user was there.

search.twitter.com is a good example of this. They still use the < newer | older > pagination there. On a popular query the 'first' page often changes while you're viewing the second. Going 'back' can potentially skip over whole 'pages' of tweets.

One option would be to populate the browser's history as you extend the page's content with 'more'. 'Back' wouldn't change the the content at all, it'd just take back to the last piece of content before you clicked 'more'.

The 'more' that dynamically loads content into an existing container can't function well from a users viewpoint because the server isn't remembering the state change for that browsing session, and the browser has no knowledge of the state change, either.

If you click 'similar' or 'share' the bottom expands with more info. There is a small ^ and bar where you can click to shrink the extra info back to the original size.
It's sorta the same… :
