Infinite Scroll: Do we get an opt out and will this apply to other themes?

  1. Justpi, no she doesn't have any footer widgets. I did email her to let her know she can get rid of the infinite scroll if she adds them but I haven't heard back from her.

  2. @kellywpa
    I believe even a blank text widget added to the footer would allow her to opt out of the infinite scrolling.
    But perhaps she likes that feature and does not want to opt out?

  3. Tess, sorry I looked at the question wrong before and thought you were justpi!

    I wonder too if she might like it. I guess I will hear from her eventually and find out.

    Not a problem: I only wish I had his intelligence…
    For some people, some blogging styles, some themes, the infinite scrolling could be useful.

    OPINION: For me, I'm very reassured that my new theme and its footers will remain undisturbed…

  5. I know that there are some people that do like it, I am not one of them. I am also using a theme with footers. I prefer having the footer widgets anyway.

  6. So how do I disable infinite scrolling on 2010 theme?

  7. 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

  8. Thanks WordPress!

  9. Hello,
    I had a widget on the bottom of my blog, but tthe option to desactivate the "Infinite Scrol" doesn't appear in the Seting Reading page.
    Thanks.

  10. It's OK now, excuse me.

  11. Oups! But why is it mandatory to add a widget at the bottom of page for the disable option appears. It's a little "twisted" as a solution when it would be much simpler than this option appears at any time.

  12. WOW!


    The initial usage stats from infinite scroll look really good -- people are reading more posts which means they're spending more time on your site. As you might guess, people are way more likely to just scroll down than they were to click the "next page" button -- it's faster and better. It's the future of all web pages with more than one page of content.

    That is ARROGANT.

    Unlike the OP, I PAY FOR THIS PRODUCT.

    I DO NOT WANT INFINITE SCROLL.

    IT IS NOT THE FUTURE OF WELL PROGRAMMED WEB PAGES.

    Faster and better? That is a very subjective opinion. One I do not value after reading your post.

    Further, how do you measure the metrics? I do not have access to the metrics, and again, I am a paying customer .....

    Do I need to start paying for a different product?

    I do not like undocumented features which take control of a product.

    I am a paying customer .....

    Those who purchase specific upgrades from WordPress.com, myself included, get exactly what they purchase. Purchasing upgrades does not in any way, shape or form change the status of those who purchase upgrades; they remain free hosted bloggers.
    4. If we do not believe that the benefits of being free hosted by WordPress.com exceeds the disadvantages, we all have the option of self hosting our own WordPress.org installs.

  14. I fixed their STUPID undocumented feature.

    And then they broke the fix.

    I do not have the time to spend fixing broken software.

  15. Then they logged me out ... and back in .... and out again ....

    Someone is paying attention, or their software is way over the top buggy ....

    The only time I see enterprise software act like this is when they build it on Microsoft. They used to claim they didn't do that.

  16. It must have taken me an hour to figure this out, even though all the info was on these forums. I don't think I'm stupid but I also want to spend my time writing my blog and not figuring out the settings - so I normally opt for the "minimal interference" settings.
    So it was really annoying to spend this time figuring out how to keep my blog the same as it was...

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it...????
