LCP Ajax Pagination is an add-on plugin for List Category Posts.
Many users have requested the AJAX pagination feature and it is now possible with this extension.
Two modes are currently supported:
- Ajax pagination
- Load more posts
IMPORTANT: Requires List Category Posts version 0.84.1 or greater.
The result is as if you used
[catlist pagination=yes] but clicking pagination links does not trigger page reloads.
Instead, new posts are fetched asynchronously and the list is updated without a reload.
No other features of LCP pagination are modified,
you can apply your pagination CSS, or other customisations, same as you have before.
This transforms vanilla LCP pagination by replacing pagination links with a “Load more” link. Note that this
first release does not allow specifying how many posts to fetch and uses the
numberposts shortcode parameter
same as vanilla pagination.
This will change in a future release.
You can customise the link’s text using LCP’s
[catlist ajax_loadmore=yes pagination_next=”Show more posts”]
- IMPORTANT: If you have multiple shortcodes on a page, those using AJAX must have the
as per the documentation.
[catlist ajax_loadmore=yes instance=1]
