New popup at bottom of Reddle theme

  1. Hello,

    I'm using the Reddle theme in my free blog and just noticed that there is a new panel that pops up at the bottom of the browser window when I scroll down my blogroll. If I scroll all the way to the bottom, the panel disappears and does not reappear with further scrolling in either direction, unless I close the window and reopen the blog, in which case the sequence starts again. Perhaps the developers are still working on it. Will it be possible to turn that off without buying an upgrade? It feels distracting and a little messy (because of the transparency) and displays my blog title truncated (and awkward-sounding) and in a font I feel is too heavy. Reddle's 'minimal design' philosophy attracted me but this seems to deviate from that. I am willing to accept the answer that this is a caveat that comes with a free account, but in that case I hope they will consider less obtrusive ways to market the Reddle brand. If the panel bothers visitors to my blog, it might also detract from a favourable opinion of the theme. Thanks very much for any feedback.

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

  2. You are referring to the footer pop-up on infinite scroll enabled themes. Staff have been introducing “infinite scroll" to themes — a site wide change that will be applied to all themes that are suitable for the implementation. http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/to-infinity?replies=137

    Disabling the infinite scroll feature to get rid of the pop-up in the footer results in a "Load More Posts" tab, and you can't disable that "Load More Posts" tab from appearing and have "previous post" and "next post" links, without the Custom Design upgrade. http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-design/

  3. Thank you for the very helpful explanation and references - they have addressed all my concerns.
