Pagination or "load more articles" in category?

Post by SocketPup » Thu Apr 11, 2024 7:02 am

I was wondering if there is a built-in option in Joomla to add pagination into a category of articles? In my case, I'd like to show 6 articles at a time, and have a pagination menu at the bottom. OR, a "load more" button at the bottom that will show 6 older articles on every click.

If there is a built-in option, where may I find it/activate it?

Yes, there is Pagination.

Are you using Category Blog or List Menu Item Type?

Category blog.
I found the pagination options inside Main Menu->Edit item->List Layouts. Seems to work fine. However, it seems I can only pick pre-set number of articles to list, like 5, 10, 15 articles per page. Any way of setting my own value? I'd like to have 6 aricles per page.

On the Category Blog, there are two Options. The Leading Articles and Intro. The Leading Articles are showing first in full with and then the Intro in the #Of Columns.

You probably want the Intro to fill a row (a multiple of the columns set).

Pagination is kind of dark ages, should be easier to load new articles without using an extention although I have never had problems of setting any type of number of articles on my category pages. I use Minitek Wall to load my articles because I find reloading the category index content (category description) on every page really annoying.
