Waypoint doesn't fire after switching url

See original GitHub issue

I’m trying to implement infinite scroll with fetching data from server. On initial page load with fully browser reload everything works as expected, so waypoint fires every time when I scroll to page bottom. But if I go to page with infinite scroll from any another page (using react-router) then waypoint fires only once at page load, and never again when scrolling to page bottom. Could you please help me to figure out what can be the problem?

My code is:

import React from 'react'
import UserItem from './UserItem'
import Waypoint from 'react-waypoint'

export default (props) => {
  return (
      <div className='users-search-result clearfix'>
        { => <UserItem key={} user={user} />)}
      <Waypoint onEnter={props.onPageScroll}>
        <div className='loader' />

I re-read your initial comment now. That was clear from the start, I was just a little quick to come to conclusions. Sorry!

The debug thing is still interesting though, it should give us a little more input. Try with a full page reload and with a react-router transition, then compare the different logs.

Very interesting, glad you got it sorted! I wonder why the scrollable ancestor changed? This might be a bug in the waypoint code.
