New P5 Feature: Infinite scrolling grids

We’re making ProPhoto 5 build #327 available today, which brings “infinite scrolling” functionality to grid excerpts.

A while back we added “infinite scrolling” and “load more posts” functionality to ProPhoto, which uses ajax to continually add more posts to your archive pages as visitors scrolled down the page or clicked the load more posts button.  This feature makes your content quickly accessible for visitors and gives your site a modern, dynamic feel.  Today, we’re extending this functionality to be compatible with ProPhoto grid excerpts as well.

If you’d like to use this feature, go to “ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Site Settings” > “Misc.” > “ProPhoto Updates” and make sure your ProPhoto site is updated to build #327.  Then, if you are using a grid for your post excerpts (“ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Content Appearance” > “Excerpts”), you can turn on dynamic grid loading by going to “ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Content Appearance” > “Post Footer” > “Post navigation method” and selecting the “load more posts button” or “infinite scrolling option”.  Then you can go back to “ProPhoto” > “Customize” > “Content Appearance” > “Excerpts” > “Grid-style post display options” and you will see a new “animation style” option.

New grid items are added to the grid using the animation method selected here.  Their names are descriptive, but play around with them to see which one suits you best.
