The standard WordPress search navigation
Search results are usually displayed as pages. If a page size is 20 results, and a search returns 100 results, then 5 pages will be required to displays all the results.
To navigate back and forth among all the pages, a navigation bar containing all pages hyperlinks is often created a the bottom of each page.
The Infinite Scroll search navigation
Infinite Scroll displays a first page of results. Then, when the user scrolls down and reaches the end of the results, another set of results is inserted below.
And so on: as long as the user scrolls down, new results are displayed, without navigating to another page. This gives a very smooth sensation, as results appear without any transition as when navigating from one page to another.
An image is used as “loader”, to notify that the search is currently extracting new results.
