Modify Blog Pages (1styearofmarriage.com)
There are two pieces to this job.
1) Home page redo
a) Set up sidebar widgets for the theme and move the footer widgets into the sidebar widgets. Then remove the footer widgets.
b) Turn on Infinite Scroll in Jetpack. Jetpack is already installed and enabled. Theoretically, when footer widgets are disabled, this should just work and allow a user who is on the main page to hit "Older Posts" and X new posts (determined by the settings for pagination) should just be added at the bottom, while the user keeps his/her place on the page. This will let users scroll down from say, post #4 and read post #3 without the page scrolling up to the top as older posts are added.
For examples of how this works in this theme via Jetpack, see:

2) The Day 1 Page
This is a page created via code in functions.php.
We want to keep this page, but change how it's configured.
a) We would like this page to pull in the first X posts (using the blog's settings for pagination), for example, if we say 5 posts per page, this would pull in the first five posts -- Day 1 through Day 5.
b) Posts should be in reverse chronological order on this page, i.e. oldest post first.
c) We would like some version of infinite scroll to work here, similar to how it should work on the rest of the blog via Jetpack. So this page would load the oldest, say 5 posts (determined by the blog's pagination settings) starting with Day 1 and ending with Day 5. And then if the user gets to the bottom and hits "Newer Posts," the next 5 posts would be added to the bottom and the user can scroll down.
Basically the only difference is that the posts go from oldest to newest, the button at the bottom reads "Older Posts," and it adds older posts instead of newer ones.
