Disable the 'reader' from my blog

  1. When I log in to my blog, it automatically takes me to the Reader section. I want to have my kids post things on the blog, but I want them to have access to the random blogs that are suggested in the reader section. Is it possible to 1) disable the Reader completely or 2) at least, remove all of the suggested blogs so I can control what content they can see?

    Thanks

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

  2. Are your kids over the age of thirteen years? The age required for registering a blog here is 13 years. That's a COPPA requirement

    As for your Reader question I do not know of any settings you can use and when we need Staff help with issues Volunteers cannot resolve like this one we type modlook into the sidebar tags on our forum threads. I did that for you. How do I get a Moderator/Staff reply for my question? https://en.support.wordpress.com/getting-help-in-the-forums/#how-do-i-get-a-moderatorstaff-reply-for-my-question Then we subscribe to this thread so we are notified when they respond. To subscribe look in the sidebar of this thread, find the subscribe to topics link and click it.

  3. While I don't believe it's possible to disable the Reader entirely, you should be able to remove any followed sites by clicking the Manage button there and then clicking on the green link at the right of each site to remove it.

    Another thought, if you are associated with an educational institution, perhaps you'd find edublogs.org more suitable for your needs. They are not affiliated with WordPressdotcom.

  4. Hi postvilleyeshivaskayitz,

    1) disable the Reader completely

    I'm afraid it's not possible to completely disable the Reader as it's integrated into your account.

    2) at least, remove all of the suggested blogs so I can control what content they can see?

    There isn't currently a way to disable all suggested blogs but I will make a feature suggestion based on this thread. You can dismiss individual recommendations for specific blogs in these locations:

    1. In Followed Sites: https://wordpress.com/following/manage
    2. Inbetween Reader posts

    For both, click the X to the top right of the recommendation.

    I want to have my kids post things on the blog

    Are your children under the age of 13?

    @timethief thanks for asking this.

    Thanks!
