The solution should be to just re-initialize the infinite scroll once the load has completed:

However, this will not work, because $.ias() attempts to be idempotent by memoizing this method, assigning data with the "ias" key to the global window object.

It appears that the makers of ias have given us a loophole to fix this, though it is not documented. You can pass the string "destroy" to $.ias() and remove the memoized data, allowing us to call it again and reinstall the scroll listeners. (

As discovered by Lee Byron

Solution I'm currently thinking of would be to call $'ias', null); from the destroy method.

Should this also destroy ias extensions? This works for me with the main portion of the plugin, but I am unable to reinstantiate the two extensions that I'm running (spinner and noneLeft).
