Just over a year ago I posted my Isotope Posts plugin on Github. I originally built the plugin for a personal project where I wanted to display a loop of WordPress posts using Metafizzy’s Isotope plugin, and then allow snazzy filtering of the posts based on a custom taxonomy.
Apparently I was not alone in wanting to do such a thing—since I posted Isotope Posts I’ve received a lot of great feedback from people who have downloaded the plugin. However, time and time again the same two feature requests popped up. The first was to allow users to save multiple Isotope Posts shortcodes in the settings area so that Isotope could be used for different post loops throughout a site. The second feature request was to add pagination, as the plugin was initially designed to show all posts from a post type at once (understandably problematic for many use cases).
So after a few months of plugging away at this (wherever I could eke out some free time…) I’ve finally posted a completely refactored version of Isotope Posts on Github that adds supports for saving multiple Isotope Posts shortcodes as well as a pagination option using infinite scroll. It also uses the most recent release of Metafizzy’s Isotope plugin.
We’ll call this a soft-launch of v2 because there may still be a few bugs to sort with the new features that have been added, so if you stumble on any weirdness please report it in the Issues section of the Github repo.
