For this tutorial we will be using a plugin called Catch Infinite Scroll which you can find here:

With the plugin activated, you should be able to see a section labeled Catch Infinite Scroll. There you will be able to customize how your page loads such as on click or on scroll which is what we're wanting. If you want to change the loading image, the plugin gives you an easy method for replacing it.

For an alternate plugin option we would recommend YITH Infinite Scrolling which you can find here:

This plugin also has minimal options to worry about and once you've set up the plugin it will work similar to the Catch Infinite Scroll plugin.

    I’m guessing that some themes support this as default as well?

      There are some themes that support this out of the box. Many times premium themes come with this functionality and most of the default 20x themes from support jetpack’s infinite scrolling.

      Correct, depending on the theme some have it built in while others do not. There are many different theme designs so we will almost never be able to say all themes have a specific feature 🙂

      @WPBeginner – WordPress Tutorials I don’t like infinite scroll on other pages, so I would opt for a “click” function. The reason for that is that the footer with info goes away if infinite scroll is enabled. At least I think it does ?
