This is a great plugin if you’re trying to do any AJAX load more functionality and filtering. Well maintained and supported, it makes it so easy to implement some complicated design systems. Great documentation with a lot of hooks and filters also makes it really easy to customize and create really cool designs. The few times I’ve ran into trouble, the plugin developer has been very responsive and helpful. If I could give 10 stars I would 🙂

5.1.0 – May 7, 2019

Ajax Load More can now use the WordPress REST API as the default for Ajax requests – this includes all add-ons and extensions.
Users that wish to continue using admin-ajax.php for Ajax requests can disable the REST API from Ajax Load More > Settings > Global Settings in your WordPress admin.

For backwards compatibility, all users running WordPress version 4.7 or lower will default to using admin-ajax.php.

Please update all your add-ons and extensions when you update Ajax Load More as this release contains breaking changes.
