    The latest version of RC4 has a super annoying media load button. How do we get rid of it? I have thousands of pics and everything used to load just perfectly. If this is a new feature it is gonna annoy so many people. Just being able to scroll down a page and see images is heaps better than having to click heaps of times. The amount of images being shown don’t even fill the screen on a 2560x144p screen.

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

    Oh no T-T

    Can someone make a plugin to fix this?

    Or is there a setting to avoid this happening?

    Good news!

    I’m marking this resolved since it’s not a bug with WP, but an intentional change.

    The number of pages and posts viewed can be changed. We need a patch to set the image limit. 40 images doesn’t even fill half a screen. I also don’t wanna get RSI from clicking that button on clients websites if possible.

    Personally I’d recommend using the search feature in the media library instead of scrolling.

    There are thousands of files in most the site I have to work on. It would be great if they were all tagged with keywords or titles properly and a search could be used but that isn’t an option in a lot of cases. I can also understand why they wanted to also fix the system from an infinite scroll to improve accessibility but they have created a new problem where users will have to use the mouse heaps more than before possible causing RSI. I think allowing the number of images to be set would easily solve this problem and also allow screen readers to work properly. You would still have the load button. Please fix WordPress so it works well with screen readers but also doesn’t increase the amount of clicks we have to do per day. Occupational health and safety is a must.

    Does anyone know if there is a plugin to change the number of images loaded?

    It’s also to stop crashing sites from loading too much, but both work.

    Please re-read https://wordpress.org/plugins/media-library-enable-infinite-scrolling/ and post in that plugin’s support forum for your request. The author actually says that’s his goal. Maybe if people (kindly) ask him about it, he’ll prioritize.

    I’m closing this since 5.8 is no longer alpha/beta.
