Support » Plugin: WordPress Infinite Scroll - Ajax Load More » Load 5 posts at a time

    Hi,

    We purchased the Previous Post add-on of the Ajax Load More plugin because we want an infinite scroll of our single posts. With this plugin, we are only able to auto load 1 single post at a time. Is there any way we can auto load 5 single posts at a time? We need to do this because we are designing a reading position bar at the bottom of the page that is dependent on the auto loaded posts.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi @octobertwo,
    with the Previous Post add-on you can only load a single post at a time… To load more you need to use the standard ajax load more plugin.

    Cheers,

    Hi @dcooney,

    Thank you very much for your response!

    However, when we don’t use the Previous Post add-on, we get duplicate post issues and the URL doesn’t update automatically as we scroll down. I saw in another thread that you recommended the use of the Preloaded add-on for the duplicate post issue. Will this allow us to load 5 posts at a time and work well with the Previous Post add-on?

    Again, thank you very much in advance!

    Yes, but Preloaded is not used for single posts.

    I don’t think I understand what functionality you are looking for. Do you see an example on the website of what you require?

    Hi @dcooney,

    Unfortunately, what we want to happen is not shown in any of the examples on your website.

    We would like to be able to load 5 single posts at a time. Also, we would like to have the functionality of URL updating / changing whenever we scroll down to a new single post.

    If you could point us to the direction on how to achieve this, we’d be very grateful.

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Ok, thats what i thought.
    You cannot do this with any of the add-ons or the standard plugin.

    A single post at a time is only possible because Previous Post uses the WP core get_previous_post() function which returns a single post.

    Hi @dcooney,

    I understand. Thank you very much for your response!
