    Hello

    I have two questions. Is it possible to create an Infinite Scroll on the GP theme?
    Also, is it possible to make the Main Menu appear at the bottom of the page while scrolling down the page? I’m asking this in the context of the Infinite Scroll. When someone keeps scrolling down they don’t see the main menu at all.

    Thanks

    Hi Luke,

    Is it possible to create an Infinite Scroll on the GP theme?

    Yes you definitely can do that.

    Go to Appearance > Customize > Layout > Blog and check Use infinite scroll. If you want a “load more button” you can check the Use button to load more posts under it.

    Also, is it possible to make the Main Menu appear at the bottom of the page while scrolling down the page? I’m asking this in the context of the Infinite Scroll. When someone keeps scrolling down they don’t see the main menu at all.

    Does it really have to be at the bottom of the page? You can keep it on the top of the page even while scrolling down by going to Appearance > Customize > Layout > Sticky Navigation and set your sticky menu to On.

    Also, make sure you uncheck Hide when scrolling down so it doesn’t hide when you scroll.

    But if it really must be sticky to bottom. You can try this code after setting the sticky navigation to “On”.

    nav#sticky-navigation{
    top: auto !important;
    bottom: 0px !important;
    }

    Let us know if it works for you.

    Hi. I changed the settings to Infinite Scroll but noticed that the featured images on the Homepage keep loading and loading and nothing appears. It happens after the twelfth post. Can you check it out and tell me if the featured images are visible for you or they keep loading and nothing appears.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    the lazy load only works if the image is there on initial load.
    Theres no point in having a lazy loader and infinite scoll – as infinite scroll is effectively lazy loading the entire post.

    I have a3 Lazy Load plugin activated. Does it mean I should deactivate it now if I use Infinite Scroll?
    You also wrote that Infinite Scroll lazy loads the entire post. I thought it only lazy loads the posts on the homepage not the separate blog posts?

    What i meant was the ‘entire’ post on the Archives page – ie. not just the image.
    I believe A3 Lazy Load allows you to exclude images by CSS class – if thats the case then you can use this one: wp-post-image that should only disable lazy load on archive images.

    Hi. I’ve enabled the Infinite Scroll on my blog. I’ve noticed however that sometimes when I get to the bottom of the page on the Homepage, I need to wait 1-2 or 3 seconds before the next posts load. Shouldn’t they load faster? I’m afraid that when a visitor gets to the bottom of the page they won’t wait until the next posts load and they will leave my blog. Can you check if you experience the same? How long do you have to wait before the next posts load?

    Maximum delay i am seeing is about 1 second.
    The time it takes to load the extra posts will be based on the the speed of the server and the users internet connection.

    To improve performance you may want to decrease the Blog pages show at most number in Dashboard > Settings > Reading.

    Hi.
    Can you tell me how to enable Infinite Scroll on Posts? So for example, a reader of my blog reaches the end of the post and automatically another post opens below it. Is it possible in Generate Press?

    You would need a plugin to do that – the best one to my knowledge is this:

    https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/ajax-load-more/

    But it requires a paid extension for that function.
