Johnny91 maybe to make an option for those who want to use pagination, the sorting filters will have to be disabled.
Come to think of it, I think we can combine filter and sort with pagination.
The challenge here, is that I really don't know how much faster it will be. Files Gallery still needs to load the data for all files in the folder, even if it distributes them to pages. It's not an option to only load data for one "page" at a time, because that is incompatible with cache, and it would definitely not work with sort and filter. In conclusion:
- It should be faster to scroll (especially slow devices), if you limit the layout to for example 100 items per page.
- I'm not sure it will be faster when initially loading the page, because all items need to load and get sorted first. Maybe, if it doesn't need to render a layout with all items.
