pagination

    My theme has automatically installed infinite scroll which I don't like and have switched off. However, now at the bottom of the page is a button 'older posts' but instead of sending me to the 'previous page', it LOADS more posts. I really don't like this feature of loading more posts on one page, I think it's really confusing for the reader and want to change it into traditional paging. How do I do that?

    thanks,
    jana

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

  2. To remove it requires purchasing an annually renewable custom design upgrade and doing the required CSS editing.

    This is so annoying as it's the absolutely only thing that bothers me about the theme. I guess I'll just have to find a different theme. Thanks for your answer.

  4. Be aware that the aim here is to implement infinite scroll on every themes and retire those that cannot be so equipped. I disliked infinite scroll when ii was first introduced but now I'm a convert. I also use responsive width themes and suggest you may want to as well.

    Mobiles are exploding and soon those using computers for the first time will be using tablets or smartphones - not desktops.

    Responsive width means the layout adapts depending on the size of the device being used to view your site. When responsive width themes are viewed on mobiles sidebars appear below the posts in order to provide as much space as possible for reading.

    I didn't notice mine doesn't have a responsive width. Good idea. I guess I'll have to do some more changes but to find blank themes with the allowance of larger photos is so rare.

    I hope I'll learn to like the infinite scroll seeing it's the future, so far I just dislike it when other blogs have it.

    Thank you so much for your help.

  6. You're welcome and best wishes with your blog.

    Hello again. I have tried to get used to the infinite scroll/loading more posts but honestly I just think it's absolutely stupid for some kind of blogs and forcing it without giving an option is just weird.

    I have never seen a lifestyle blog having such a feature and I don't think I would bother reading it because it just makes everything look chaotic.

    If at least the Archive option allowed to show all posts underneath each month, it would make things easier. But I guess I would also have to purchase an upgrade?

    I have done such an extensive research before starting my blog deciding between blogger and wordpress and now I am just disappointed with my decision. Blogger seems to be so much more flexible without having to pay for an upgrade.
    Is there a way of transporting my blog from wordpress to blogger?
