I'm very comfortable making views that pull up a set of results and then paginate them using dots.

What I'd rather have is a view that shows ten results and then has a link or button that says "Show More Results". When you click it, additional results appear immediately below, "growing" the list of results instead of replacing a single page of results. I think this is sometimes called "infinite load more via ajax".

I believe this forum topic was asking the same thing:

But I wonder if there's a more up-to-date answer since I suspect many people ask for this functionality?


Thank you for contacting Toolset support, I'd be delighted to assist!

I can certainly understand wanting AJAX pagination, no one likes the white flash when you load pages. As of now, there currently isn't a feature in Toolset to enable this. I'd be happy to let our developers know that it would be a nice feature to have!


Hi Ross,

I dug into this problem some more and learned that "Infinite Scrolling" is in fact a built-in feature as of WP 1.11 (Nov 4, 2015)

I'm very happy to be able to rely on this without having to hack my own JS!

On the other hand, I'm displeased with the support I received in this case.


Hey there Canton, I appreciate the feedback!

You are totally right in this case, my mind completely skipped that we added AJAX Pagination into the Pagination settings in Views. I get many tickets about hacking in custom AJAX into Toolset that my mind immediately skipped to custom work as 99% of the cases are as such. It's not often I get a simple and straightforward How-To question and for that, I thank you for reminding me to not skip the basics.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and good luck on your project!
