I'm using <!--nextpage--> tag to split up the post content into multiple pages. My example post content looks like this:

<img src="1.jpg" alt=""/><!--nextpage-->
<img src="2.jpg" alt=""/><!--nextpage-->
<img src="3.jpg" alt=""/><!--nextpage-->
<img src="4.jpg" alt=""/>

I want to setup infinite scrolling so when a user scrolls down the page it'll load the next image/content of the post. Is there a way to do this? There are lots of tutorials on adding infinite scrolling to posts but they only load more posts where as I want to load more of the post content

  • And what have you tried? There is tons of stuff out there on how to set this up. – ngearing Aug 16 '16 at 3:04
  • @Nath there are lots of stuff but all of them are for loading more posts. What I want is to load the the next content of the post since it has been split up into multiple pages – Ruriko Aug 16 '16 at 3:14
  • Well this seems related to this. It would essentially be the same thing, but you would call your ajax on page scroll event instead of click. There would be a check for page length and event would fire when we reach x % of that page. – bynicolas Aug 16 '16 at 3:33
  • Use the a combination of a waypoints JS library with wordpress.org/plugins/json-rest-api. You're looking for a full AJAX+CSS solution. >>> When element is visible, fetch content and display. Pretty simple. – jgraup Aug 16 '16 at 4:03

Your best bet is to use a combination of JS waypoint libraries with the WP Rest API.

When element is visible, fetch content and display. Pretty simple.

Instead of the <nextpage> you could also wrap this in a custom shortcode but this is primarily a JS problem, not really a WP issue.
