LCP Ajax Pagination


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.

Ajax pagination

Usage: [catlist ajax_pagination=yes]

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.

Load more

Usage: [catlist ajax_loadmore=yes]

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 pagination_next parameter:
[catlist ajax_loadmore=yes pagination_next=”Show more posts”]

General notes

  • IMPORTANT: If you have multiple shortcodes on a page, those using AJAX must have the instance parameter set
    as per the documentation.
    [catlist ajax_loadmore=yes instance=1]
  • You do not have to use LCP’s pagination parameter, using ajax_loadmore or ajax_pagination is enough.
  • Make sure your shortcode contains only one option: ajax_loadmore or ajax_pagination, otherwise the plugin will not work.

CSS customisations

The plugin uses the following CSS classes:

  • AJAX pagination <ul> has the original lcp_paginator class, this plugin also adds lcpax-pagination.
  • Wrapper around the load more link is: <div class="lcpax-nextlink-wrapper">, the link itself is left unchanged
    as delivered by LCP, so it has the lcp_nextlink class.
  • The SVG spinner displayed while waiting for ‘load more’ to finish has the lcpax-spinner class.
