Is there a way to disable snow now so it won't happen next year?

  1. Hello.

    I have not had the snow problem on my free wp blog till now (though have had it on blogs I visit/subscribe to), but now I have a paid wp blog, and it's my understanding that next year, come December, it will start snowing until I opt out.

    I read this thread about disabling it: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/let-it-snow-widget-removal?replies=3

    And others of its ilk.

    However, when I look at Settings, I don't see anything about "Let It Snow," so I'm wondering if it only shows up in December? I would really like to be able to prevent this on my own blog and also tell other people how to opt out on their blogs. I wrote this post about why it's so important to me: http://aftergadget.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/waspish-wednesday-how-autoplays-let-it-snow-disable-visitors-to-your-website/

    Thanks for any help!

    The blog I need help with is sharonwachsler.com.

  3. It only shows up in December, and by default it's off, so if you don't want to enable it, just don't do anything.

  4. Ah. I think the problem is that I'm posting at wp.com and should be posting at wp.org. I've heard from friends who have self-hosted WP blogs that it just starts up on its own, that they don't enable it. I'll try there. Thanks.

  5. You're welcome and good luck. I didn't notice it on my WP.org blog, but then I wasn't really paying attention.
