I want to auto load new data into my php page, my homepage is getting to long with statuses, so when people go to the home page i want it to only show ten, then when they scroll to the bottom of the page, it loads the next ten, and so on.

right now this is what i have set to load the data.

                $sql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM post WHERE Deleted like '0' ORDER BY ID DESC");
                $numrows = (mysql_num_rows($sql));
                if($numrows > 0){
                    while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($sql)){
                        $uid = $row['UID'];
                        $postid = $row['ID'];
                        $post1 = $row['Post'];
                        $Timestamp = $row['Timestamp'];
                        $id = $row['ID'];
                        $check_pic = "members/$uid/image01.jpg";
                            $user_pic ="<img src=\"$check_pic\" width=\"50\" heign='50'>";
                            $user_pic ="<img src=\"$default_pic\" width=\"50\" heign='50'/>";
                        if ($user=='1'){
                            $type = 'Admin';
                            $type = 'member';
                        $namesql = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM members WHERE ID like $uid");
                        while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($namesql)){
                            $firstname = $row['firstname'];
                            $lastname = $row['lastname'];

Sounds like you need a paginator. This can be a js-driven show/hide affair or php (or ajax) driven.
