Hate Infinite Scrolling - Want to turn it off, NOT change themes

    Please tell me how to disable infinite scrolling. It is a major PITA for so many reasons. I set the number of blog posts I want to display for a reason, please respect that. I like the theme I have and I do not understand why I am being punished for having made that selection. Please return some control over my blog to me.

    Thank you,

    Kat

    The blog I need help with is regencyredingote.wordpress.com.

    The abilty to control the number of post on the front page of your blog has been restored now. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/infinite-scroll-do-we-get-an-opt-out-and-will-this-apply-to-other-themes/page/5?replies=138#post-817272

    Also note:

    Infinite Scroll is now an option when footer widgets are present. You can find the option under Settings → Reading when two conditions are met:
    1. You are using a theme that supports infinite scroll
    2. You have added footer widgets http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/disable-infinite-scroll-with-custom-css?replies=20#post-817131

  3. Note: you MUST have footer widgets, even one, for infintite scroll to be disableable.

  4. But many themes like the one I'm using now Iniut Types don't have footer widget areas. :( Sidebars and other widget areas: number and position by theme (free themes only)

  5. Tell me about it.

    I just tested this, and on Twenty Eleven, the option to enable/disable does not show up unless you have at least one footer widget.

  6. I can confirm that.
