Roots Sage with Jetpack Infinite Scroll

Hey, I’m trying to add Jetpack to my Roots Sage theme. Has anyone had any luck with this? I tried adding this to the functions.php file

add_theme_support( 'infinite-scroll', array(
    'type'           => 'scroll',
    'footer_widgets' => false,
    'container'      => 'content',
    'wrapper'        => true,
    'render'         => false,
    'posts_per_page' => false,
) );

I’m kind of clueless at this point. Any guidance is much appreciated. My site is here:

This is how I got it working on one recent site. I had to use the “render” callback function to iterate through the loop and use sage (9) template function. I hope it helps you figure it out!

    // Add support for Jetpack's Infinite Scroll
    add_theme_support('infinite-scroll', [
        'container' => 'main',
        'footer' => false,
        'type' => 'scroll',
        'wrapper' => false,
        'posts_per_page' => 12,
        'render' => __NAMESPACE__ . '\\infinite_scroll',

    function infinite_scroll()
        echo '<div class="container-inner">';

        while (have_posts()) : the_post();
            echo template('partials.content-' . get_post_type());

        echo '</div>';

Thank you for the response Patrick. I still can’t get it to work. I’m not even seeing the AJAX trigger. Do you have your project as a Fork of Roots Sage?

I’m getting this as the AJAX return response now that I figured out to have the right ID in the infinite scroll theme settings:

<div class="container-inner">

Could you send me the template() function?

This did the trick:

function infinite_scroll() {
while (have_posts()) : the_post();
echo \App\template( ‘partials.content’ );

you would have to use template() in a file inside the namespace App;
