Thank you for your report. I moved this post to #feature-requests as it is not a bug.
About your feature requests:
We are already working on the “load more” button solution
I’ve added this request to our development queue. In the initial versions of the infinite scroll, we had a hidden element that could be used to bind a loading animation, but it was causing problems with the different query loop layouts.
Is this something coming soon?
Really want some update and love for the infinite scroll Bricks element.
Also, is it possible to change URL and browser history when scrolling?
For example, when we scroll and we load the next batch of items the URL auto-populates with “/page/2” and so on and so forth. It will be easier to share the direct URL to the pagination page then!
