Installed Infinite Scroll

Infinite Scroll looks like a fun plugin. It almost worked perfectly right out of the box (see my note about WP-FancyZoom). I found it on the Balsaman blog.

Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and the next page should load up automatically. :-)

To make the WP FancyZoom WordPress Plugin work well with Infinite Scroll, I figured out that I have to add the following to the “Javascript to be called” section:

addDOMLoadEvent(setupZoom);

Please tell me what you think of this change!

    Dear,
    I have troubles too using WP Fancyzoom together with infinite scroll. Fancyzoom isn’t working anymore on scrolled posts. How exactly did you make it work together ?
    Where (in which file) to add this extra line ??

    It’s been a while but I’m pretty sure this is where:
    Go to Plugins | Editor | WP FancyZoom
    Do a search for “Header hook”.
    Add a last line to the header hook (and before the section called “The filter itself”) like so:

    echo "<script src='{$fancyzoom_path}adddomloadevent.js' type='text/javascript'>\n";
    echo "<script type='text/javascript'>addDOMLoadEvent(setupZoom);\n";
    }

    Hi Lee, THX for the reply, but I noticed that these lines are already there…
    Do you have another suggestion ??
    Problem could be theme-related ?? (I use Weaver II)

    Hmm, I’m not sure what’s up then. You might want to try using the Infinite Scroll built into WordPress Jetpack. The theme I’m running doesn’t support Jetpack’s Infinite Scroll so I haven’t tried it. Failing that, we can try a couple more things… I can give you my source code for the two plugins. Try Jetpack’s Infinite Scroll first.

    Lee, I am very sorry but I don’t feel too much about installing WP Jetpack. I’ve been using it 1-2 years ago and got messed up with my WP Stats, and other small annoyments. Also, its a rather heavy pack on which I’ll only use the infinite scroll module. Also don’t know about the theme support…
    Are the other options more complicated ?

  6. lee says:

    I know what you mean about Jetpack. I got it only because it was the only way to keep getting WP Stats updates. And yes, it seems to have a heavy footprint. Though I did a little investigation and saw it isn’t a performance hog for me.

    I put my infinite-scroll and wp-fancyzoom in a zip file here:

    Hope it works for you.

    Dear Lee,
    THX very much for these efforts, but unfortunately it doesn’t work on my site.
    I guess I should try to find support from Weaver II. I like this theme very much and I consider to buy a PRO version. From then onwards I can rely on some aid. Or, do you have one more thing to check ?
    May I ask which theme you are using on your blog ? I can try to find out if it is really theme-related…

    I use a hand tweaked version of the Fluid Blue theme. Sorry but I don’t have any other ideas for how to get it working.

    Infinite Scroll is a great feature, I hope you can get it working on your blog.
