Media Library Enable Infinite Scrolling

Description

After WordPress 5.8 is released, infinite scrolling will be removed by default from the Media Library. See Trac ticket 50105 for the releated changeset and ticket 40330 for the historical context behind the decision.

This plugin, for the short term, is a global re-enabling of infinite scrolling in the Media Library for all users.

A potential future enhancement is to have a per-user setting, letting individual users decide what’s best for them.

The “Load More” button in 5.8 was frustrating and slowed my workflow. This plugin relieved the issue and brought back infinite scrolling.

I spent so much time clicking from page to page of pictures before hearing about this plugin. This plugin saves hours of frustration that another unwanted WordPress update has created.

I have about 800 photos on just one of my websites. Renaming them to make them searchable is not an option, as that would take many hours or even a whole day or two. Needless to say, WordPress switching from infinite scroll to that Load More button created a real pain in the butt for users like me. I'm so happy I found this plugin! Message to WordPress developers, please go back to the infinite scroll or at least make the load more button optional.

Perfect, back to high productivity after a 300% drop in throughput. Whish I had heard about this sooner after the update. Should have been highlighted in the release notes.
