Post Navigation Method

This particular option can be found by logging into your site's admin area and going to:
"ProPhoto" > "Customize" > "Content Appearance" > "Post Footer"

There are several places within your ProPhoto site where multiple blog posts are displayed on a single page.  The most obvious example of this is your main blog posts page, which is either your front page, or a separate page, if you’re using a static home page setup on your site.  Other places on your site where multiple posts may be displayed on the same page are your category or monthly archive pages.  The number of posts that are displayed on these pages is determined by your “Blog pages show at most ‘x’ posts” setting under “Settings” > “Reading”  in the WordPress admin area.

So what happens when a visitor reaches the bottom of one of the multiple post page types?  How do they view additional posts?  ProPhoto gives you several different options to choose from in displaying these additional posts:

  1. Numbered Pagination Links – visitors see numbers which link to additional pages of posts. (1, 2, 3, etc.)
  2. Older/Newer Pagination Links – Visitors see a text link or icon on the left and right side, leading forward/backward chronologically to more posts.
  3. “Load More Posts” Link – Visitors see a link which loads more posts in-place, adding them at the end of the page.
  4. Infinite Scrolling* – When visitors reach the bottom of the page, more posts will automatically be added underneath. The page expands, getting longer with more posts as visitors scroll down.

Here are examples of what options 1-3 look like:

Option #1 - Numbered Pagination Links

Option #1 – Numbered Pagination Links

Option #2 - Older/Newer Pagination Links

Option #3 - "Load More Posts" Link

To turn on Infinite scrolling, or any of the other methods shown above, simply visit this screen in ProPhoto:
“ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Content Appearance” > “Post Footer”
You can choose any option in that screen and Save Changes.

If you are using an Excerpt Grid layout, the “Load More Posts” and “Infinite Scrolling” options above have an additional option available. If the “Load More Posts” or “Infinite Scrolling” option is selected, you will see an animation style option under “ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Content Appearance” > “Excerpts” > “Grid-style post display options”.

These are variations of the animation used to display grid items as new posts are added to the grid. The names are somewhat descriptive, but try them out to find one that best suits you.
