The Call to Actions add-on will provide functionality to inject a unique template within an Ajax Load More query.

Easily include a custom advertisement block or call to action within each Ajax Load More loop.

How It Works

The Call to Actions add-on works by providing an intuitive and user-friendly method for website admins to inject advertisements or call to actions directly into the results of each Ajax Load More query.

Insert Call to Action with Ajax Load More

It’s as simple as choosing a display position within the loop and then selecting the Repeater Template that holds the call to action content.

Call to actions can be anything you want them to be… an advertisement, a featured article or even a sign-up form – it’s up to you to decide.

Note: This add-on requires an additional Repeater Template add-on for displaying call to actions. Please refer to the Requirements section in the sidebar for more info.


Implementation

The process for injecting call to actions into Ajax Load More results can essentially be split into two separate tasks.

  1. Creating a Template
    This task will involve the creation of a custom template that will hold the content or HTML container of your call to action.
  2. Building a Shortcode
    With the Shortcode Builder, it’s as easy as selecting your call to action template and then choosing the injection point within the Ajax Load More loop.

Working with Advertisements

The majority of ad networks require JavaScript to trigger the display of their ads. Making use of the almComplete callback function will likely be required to load advertisements on the Ajax loaded content.


Examples

The following examples will provide an idea what can be done with the Call to Actions add-on:

Featured Content

Displaying a featured Ajax Load More add-on based on the current $alm_item value.

Random Quote

Template

Inserting a call to action into Ajax Load More results will require a unique Repeater Template. This template holds the content of your CTA and will be injected into each loop at the position specified in the shortcode.

A typical CTA template is constructed similarly to standard Ajax Load More templates and may include a custom WP_Query, JavaScript or even hard coded content such as a mailing list sign-up or contact form.

Note: You should always open and close a call to action template with an HTML element.
e.g. <div class=’my-cta’>// CTA content </div>

Example Template

The following template is used in the Featured Content example and will display a featured add-on based on the current $alm_item value.


Shortcode Parameters

The following shortcode parameters are available with the Call to Actions add-on.

cta Enable call to actions. Default = ‘false’
cta_position Insert call to action {before/after} post #{x}. Default = ‘before:1’
cta_repeater The repeater template that will display the call to action. Default = null
cta_theme_repeater The theme repeater that will display the call to action. (If activated) Default = null

cta_position is a colon separated value where the first value is before/after and the second value is the post position (in the current loop) where the call to action will be inserted.

Shortcode Builder

The following screenshot illustrates the process of building a Call to Action shortcode using the Ajax Load More Shortcode Builder.
