Permalink Finder Plugin
Generates (unwanted) extra posts in queries with infinite-scroll (2 posts)

    This plugin is very useful, however I just want to alert Keith and users that if it's used in conjunction with Infinite Scroll, Permalink Finder will keep appending posts to the end of queries, with the effect of padding query results with an unlimited number of unwanted and seemingly random posts, after specific parameters of the query have been satisfied.

    For example, if you search for August 2012 post, with infinite-scroll and permalink finder installed, you truly will get infinite results! Permalink Finder will continue to suggest posts that might suit the query (but don't) instead of returning the 404.

    This is of course part of the design of Permalink Finder, but Infinite Scroll depends on getting a 404 at the end of a loop in order to know when it has satisfied the results of an archive query. So, in this case, the extra posts appended by Permalink Finder at the end of the query become an unwanted feature.

    It might also be considered a feature (smiley face thingy), but I will download the infinite scroll and perhaps add some code to keep this from happening.

    This would mean that the Iscroll plugin somehow asks for posts that It knows are not going to be found and relies on a 404 to tell it that it is done. This does not sound like a good way to do it. Perhaps it is a bug in the Iscroll plugin.
