Discussion on: Page scroll progress bars

The home page here breaks browser functionality, but it's not really a problem because we're not reading a single article. The proposed solution in this post doesn't apply as far as I can tell unless you want a little indicator of your position in every blog post - and in turn that requires every blog post to be rendered in full rather than as a teaser card, otherwise they'd all say you were 100% of the way through.

I think I am not being clear, that part was me joking about the prevalence of infinite scroll, I was not meaning to link it to the article or having infinite scroll on actual posts.

I am also agreeing with you that there is no need for this on most sites and all i offered was one scenario (one which I am not a fan of!) where this could be useful as scroll position couldn’t be correlated with article length.

Hope we are clear now as we arguing a point from the same side of the fence!
