Contribute To Auto Load Next Post

Community made patches, bug reports and contributions are always welcome and are crucial.

When contributing please ensure you follow the guidelines below so that I can keep on top of things.

Please Note: GitHub is for bug reports and contributions only - if you have a support question or a request for a customization this is not the right place to post it. Use for community support.

If you need help setting up the plugin I do offer theme support.

Reporting Issues

Reporting issues is a great way to became a contributor as it doesn't require technical skills. In fact you don't even need to know a programming language or to be able to check the code itself, you just need to make sure that everything works as expected and submit an issue report if you spot a bug. Sound like something you're up for? Go for it!

How To Submit An Issue Report

If something isn't working, congratulations you've found a bug! Help me fix it by submitting an issue report:

  • Make sure you have a GitHub account
  • Search the Existing Issues to be sure that the one you've noticed isn't already there.
  • Submit a report for your issue by:
    • Clearly describing the issue (including steps to reproduce it if it's a bug).
    • Make sure you fill in the earliest version that you know has the issue.

Making Changes

Making changes help improve Auto Load Next Post. You will need some technical skills to make a change, like knowing a bit of PHP or JavaScript.

If you think something could be improved and you're able to do so, make your changes and submit a Pull Request. I'll be pleased to get it :)

If you are making JavaScript changes for the frontend then please edit the developer version "" of the Javascript. To test with the developer version you need to make sure that you have ALNP_DEV_DEBUG set as true in your wp-config.php file.
