The Paging add-on transforms the Ajax Load More lazy load/infinite scroll functionality into a robust AJAX powered navigation system.
Quickly and easily replace the default lazy load/infinite scroll functionality of Ajax Load More with a numbered navigation system.
How It Works
The Paging add-on works by removing the default lazy load/infinite scroll functionality of Ajax Load More and replacing it with an intuitive and powerful paged navigation system.
Behind the scenes, the core functionality of Ajax Load More remains the same, however on the front end of the website users will be presented with a numbered navigation menu while the Older Posts button is removed.
Enabling the paging navigation is easy – simply set paging=”true” in your Ajax Load More shortcode and infinite scrolling will be replaced with a numbered navigation system.
Learn about the other shortcode parameters and implementation in the Shortcode Parameter section below.
The following shortcode was used to create the paging example above.
[ajax_load_more paging="true" paging_controls="true" paging_show_at_most="5" posts_per_page="2" css_classes="paging-example"]
Create a user-friendly gallery of posts with Ajax Load More and the Paging add-on.
SEO and Paging
Combine both the Paging and Search Engine Optimization add-on to create a paging navigation with unique URLs for each page.
The following shortcode parameters are available with the Paging add-on.
|paging||Replace infinite scrolling with a paged navigation system? (true/false) Default = ‘false’|
|paging_controls||Show («)previous and next(») buttons. (true/false) Default = ‘false’|
|paging_show_at_most||Maximum amount of pages to show at a time. (0 = no maximum) Default = ‘0’|
|paging_classes||Add classes to the paging navigation menu for CSS styling.|
[ajax_load_more post_type="post" paging="true" paging_controls="true" paging_show_at_most="0"]
Configuration options will be available on the ALM Settings page after installation. You can choose to disable the Paging CSS or select your color palette from the select menu.
You can easily customize the look and feel of the paging navigation component by targeting elements based on the example HTML and classes below.
<li class="prev disabled">
<li class="num active">
