How To Add Load More Posts Button in Blogger

Most of the bloggers add load more posts' button in their blog (website). Some bloggers like to add 'infinite scrolling' which is an advanced form of load more button. Both things perform the same action but the only difference is that you have to press 'load more' button manually, while on the other hand, 'infinite scrolling' do it for you with an automatic system. Basically, this is done with a jQuery script.

     Its working phenomenon is quite simple. Let me explain here one by one. If you apply a 'load more posts' button to your blog, the readers have to click on this button, again and again, to load older posts until the last post. If we talk about 'infinite scrolling', it loads your older posts when a reader scroll down the page and there is no need to press any button manually for this purpose.

2. Click on "Template" and go to "Edit HTML"

3. Click on 'Save Template' and check the results. Now your blog will show the older posts with the scrolling of page just like in Facebook or Twitter.

Modifications

You can see a read line in the code. This red line is to use jQuery libraries. So, if you have already added jQuery in your template then please remove this red line because the doubling of this script may cause issues with your website. Here is a step by step guide to check either you already have this or not.
  1. Go to your "Template" >> "Edit HTML" and search for jquery.min.js or jquery.js
  2. If you already have, it should look like "<script src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js'/>"
  3. Here the version number is 2.2.0. It may be different in the previous script but you can replace this number with other number.

Bottom Line


Okay, you have done a good job. Now you and your visitors can see load more button/infinite scrolling on your website. Post your comments below to give valued feedback or ask a question in case of any confusion.
