the desire i want is similar on how facebook works; when a new content is being published, it pushes down the old post with the new posts on top.

  • New Content (pushes down previous topics without reloading the page)
  • Old Content 1
  • Old Content 2
  • Old Content 3

is that possible in wordpress?

The used term for this is "infinite scroll", there are plugins that may assist you to achieve this behavior, you can check this one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/infinite-scroll/

If the infinity scoll plugin not working (what a great opportunity, because it comes from a very unstable extension), try "Jetpack" which is also included in this function and only requires very little configuration, encore is stable, never have a problem with it:

Add this code for the funcktions.php:

function zilla_infinite_scroll_render() {
get_template_part( 'content-post', 'standard' );
add_theme_support( 'infinite-scroll', array(
'container' => 'content',
'render' => 'zilla_infinite_scroll_render',
And change the container id your post container id. So this line must be change:
'container' => 'content' (the content is my post div ID,so you must be change this).

That's it,have fun :)
