Easily add infinite scroll to your Genesis child themes. You have a couple of options to load more posts on a button click (without page reload) or automatically when the user scrolls to the end of the last post.
10 different loading animations gives you plenty of options to choose from. You can literally set any color to the loading icons that suit your brand color.
Features of Infinite Scroll for Genesis:
- Lightweight implementation.
- Flexible options to enable/disable infinite scroll on the home page, blog, tags, categories, author archives, and search results.
- 2 options to load more posts – Either on button click or automatically on the scroll.
- 10 Pure CSS loading animations.
- Infinite color options.
- No CSS files added to your pages.
- Proper conditional checking to execute the plugin only on the selected pages.
- No additional load on your regular posts since infinite scroll on posts is meaningless.
- SEO Friendly. Your regular Pagination (/page/1, /page/2, etc.) still work with proper canonical links.

Should I enable infinite scroll everywhere?
Maybe Yes or No. It depends on your preferences and theme design.
If you are using a custom-developed page instead of regular posts layout as your front page/home page, you need to disable infinite scroll on it.
For example, check the home page of the Geek Dashboard. Here we are using a custom-coded front page and infinite scroll is not possible since it is a combination of different sections. However, if you are using the theme’s default latest posts as home page, you can enable infinite scroll on it.
Loading posts “Automatically on scroll” or “On Button Click”. Which one to use and why?
Both options have their own pros and cons. If you have important information in site footer or sidebar(on mobiles), you should use “On Button Click” to load more posts. So the user will have a chance to view your sidebar and footer. If you wish to save a user click and no critical information is available in the sidebar or the footer, you can choose to load posts automatically when the user scrolls to the end of the list.
