New in v.2.0

- Paginate your loop of posts using infinite scrolling (rather than loading them all at once)
How do I make this thing work in my theme?
To implement Isotope Posts on your site, simply head over to the Isotope Posts settings page in your WordPress admin area, create a loop of posts with your preferred options and then save it. Next, grab the unique shortcode for the loop you just saved (e.g.
[isotope-posts id="YOUR_UNIQUE_ID"]) and embed it in a page in your site.
What kind of Isotope options are available?
- Add a filter menu (based on post categories or tags, or a custom taxonomy)
- Arrange your posts descending by date or ascending alphabetically by title
- Choose whether to use display evenly in horizontal rows or masonry-style
- Add pagination to your posts using infinite scrolling
Does this plugin work with custom post types and taxonomies?
Absolutely. To use a custom post type, simply pick it from the select menu on the plugin settings page. Same goes for using a custom taxonomy for a filter menu.
Why do things get weird when I try to add a filter menu and use infinite scrolling?
In my experience, the only time that using filters with infinite scrolling isn’t completely weird is when you have a lot of posts in your selected post type AND the terms for the taxonomy you use to create your filter menu are more or less evenly spread across your posts. If you must go down this road, please be sure to test this thoroughly before you unleash it on your users.
Why does the plugin break when I try to add two Isotope Posts shortcodes on one page?
Is it localized?
Yes, but no translations are available quite yet.
