Easy Load More

Description

Rather than having your users download a new page each time they click to view older posts, speed up your website by dynamically loading those posts on the same page using ajax. With minimal editing to your theme files, Easy Load More will add a button for ajax content loading. Works automatically on your front page, any taxonomy or custom post type page, any archive page, and search pages without special configuration.

Easy Load More has a light footprint that won’t slow your website down. Buttons are lightly styled that won’t override or interfere with your theme styles. The required javascript is tiny at only 766 bytes. Animated loading icons are rendered with SVG so your users don’t have to download images. Finally advanced theme developers can optionally turn off plugin styles and javascript to bundle it with theme files, reduce HTTP requests that increase page load time, and completely customize the look and feel of the loading buttons.

Screenshots

  • Add a load more button to your posts loop.
  • Choose from 9 different animated loading icons.
  • Example of how to add the button to your template.

Reviews

Not Working

This plugin is not working even with wordpress default post listing.

Just what i needed.

If you using custom WP_query make sure your store it in var named $wp_query. Otherwise button will not disappear when all posts loaded.

Simply not working

Not by default for main page (as written in the description), not by using load_more_button() function.

Simple & Works

Everything is great, but the styles on the button are awful (nothing a lil' css can't fix) 😛
