General Settings

To get the access to the “Infinite Scroll” settings please go to: Stores → Configuration → Amasty Extensions → Infinite Scroll

Loading Type - choose from the available loading styles.

See the full list and each type specifics below:

  • Select None - module is disabled if you want to deactivate the functionality of the Infinite Scroll extension.
  • Select Automatic - on page scroll to activate the autoloading of the previous and next pages. The next and previous pages will be displayed as soon as you reach the end of the current page. The AJAX plugin provides the progressive enhancement of the next and previous pages to the existing page without a complete page refresh.
  • If you select Button - on button click you'll have the next and previous pages loaded automatically but they will be displayed only after you click the button.
  • In case you choose the Combined - automatic + button, the first 'X number' of pages will be loaded automatically. After X pages, the user will have to load pages manually by pressing the button.
  • For Combined - button + automatic, the first 'Y number' of pages will be loaded automatically. Then, to load the next page, the user will need to click a button once. After that, all other pages will be loaded automatically.

Number of Automatically Loaded Pages - Enter the number of pages a user needs to scroll before 'Auto mode' applies. This setting is only available for Combined loading types: Combined - automatic + button and Combined - button + automatic.

What is the difference between automatic + button vs button + automatic?

Let's say, you set the number of automatically loaded pages as 4.

In the case of the Combined - automatic + button scenario, a user will see the first 4 pages similarly to a long one-pager. Then, to load the 5th, 6th, 7th, etc. pages, the user will need to press a 'Load More' button every time to load the page.

However, with the Combined - button + automatic user will be asked to press a 'Load More' button only once - between the 4th and 5th page.

Display Page Numbers - Choose 'Yes' to display the pages separator with numbers. While scrolling down the list of products you will see the line separator with the page number. Select 'No' to deactivate the separator and have the plain catalog list.

Page Numbers Style - Choose the style of page numbers from the list.

These are the available page number styles:
  • Button;

  • Text with divider;

  • Text with background.

AJAX Progress Image Path - Insert the path to your own loading theme to customize your website. Choose what kind of loading wheels fits your web store layout.
