    I’ve noticed my blog has the load more posts button at the bottom of the page again and when I goto my settings under reading to change it back, now where it says to infinity and beyond i find this: ” We’ve disabled this option for you since you have footer widgets in Appearance → Widgets.” I don’t want you deciding for me please enable the option of turnning on infinite scroll/load more posts or not.
    I’m still 50/50 over the whole infinite scrolling/load more posts thing therefore I like the click read previous posts link to load the next page display option more, I would like to be able to choose what i want my blog pages to do by looking at my settings! All I ask is to have the options enabled again at where it says to infinity and beyond, please correct.

    The blog I need help with is wayoftheartchemist.com.


    There isn’t a way to toggle that setting since you have footer widgets enabled in Appearance → Widgets. If you remove those footer widgets, that option will appear again.

    You can see our blog post about the new infinite scroll feature here:


    Let us know if you have any other questions. :)


    Thanks, I’ve read that post about infinity and beyond changes now, so now the choice of using the old click next to read old blog entries> loading the next page is completely gone there’s no way of changing back myself if i want to keep the old way?

    This load more posts button has replaced the old way and the change was done for me automatically which I’m not too thrilled with… but now since I’ve tried browsing my blog with it I guess its not bad, better than the annoying infinite scroll feature first introduced!



    No, you can change back somewhat. As mentioned, you can enable a click-to-load feature via Settings -> Reading in your blog’s Dashboard.
