2. I found that several users are asking for a way to insert adsense between posts in the archives and homepage. Using another plugin is the only way to archive this?, there is not a hook option?, this is relevant because those plugins tend to be heavy.
1. Infinite scroll basically queries /page/2 (or whatever page) just like a regular page load, and brings the items to the current page.
That plugin seems to cache those pages. Caching can always help with performance, but in this case, I’m not able to think of a huge advantage. Having your actual site cached should offer similar advantages.
2. There will be a hook option in GP 2.5.0, which will be entering public testing soon 🙂
