Infinite scroll added to two themes in WP.com
Do not need! Do not want! Do not like! Please allow us to opt out. I switched themes yesterday because of this.
I have already expressed my opinion about it and like others, I really dislike this feature. I, too, had footer widgets and that’s why I chose this theme. Please respond about possibility of
- turning this feature off
Unfortunatelly I had to change theme and Nishita seemed a close choice. Its dark with footer widgets, theme options, custom header and background. Thankfully I didn’t have to fix some of the customizations I had.
By the way… I noticed that a site for raspberry pi, which is using the twenty eleven theme doesn’t have infinite scrolling, look for yourself:
How did this happen?

It is a WordPress.ORG install so they are using different software –
Hi wordpress staff,
I am happy with the infinite scroll update !
However, could you please add the rating system on all the articles not only the seven first ones :)
Keep up the good work !
Please take this scrolling feature away or make it optional. I want my footer back!
This is terrible! Why have we not been given an option!!!!!
Please remove it now!!!!!!!!!!
This is appalling!
I WANT MY FOOTER WIDGETS BACK!
Please allow us to opt out of this!
I hate this change too.
Just FYI…WPsupport’s response to my unhappy feedback:
“Hi, thanks for the feedback. The infinite scroll feature was introduced yesterday and is still very much something that’s in-progress. You’ll see some changes that make it behave better over the coming days. It’s currently limited to Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven.
I’m passing your feedback on to the team so that they can all see it, thanks again for sending it in.”
*Dislike*. My posts are kind of long, so having infinite scroll, I worry, will be a torture device for my readers.
But, WP is free, so this kind of change is kind of expected. I’ll go find a different theme – or I’ll finally take the plunge & do a WP.org blog, myself. Thanks for the nudge.
Their response isn’t entirely surprising, but the sentence which leapt out was : “… It’s currently limited to Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven.”
As @thesacredpath has also suggested in this thread and if I were making bets, that statement above does not bode well for other free wp.com themes remaining untouched by the infinite-scroll.
Please remove it! We are really unhappy with this change.
also chiming in and glad to know i’m not the only one with footer widgets/sometimes long posts. the infinite scroll is really annoying. it also shows up for me while logged in. please give us an opt-out.
The footer widgets are integral on my blog. This continual scrolling is SO annoying. I have invested a lot of time in this blog to get it how I want it, much like many commenting here. I would hate to have to try and change to a different theme at this point.
Changing these yhemes to a scrolling feature with no way to turn it off or opt out of it is very short sighted to put it mildly. I would hope WordPress would add a way to turn it off or opt out given the mostly negative feedback I’ve read here.
Look you people at the wordpress HQ, the news from the users is this: WE DON’T LIKE IT! THANKS FOR ALL THE WORK YOU DO, BUT WE WANT TO OPT OUT. So please get a disable button. Please.
Matt thinks it is the greatest thing since white sliced bread with preservatives. Good luck.
Please make it optional, at least.
There is no sense in not making it optional. Most of us have spent a lot of time putting your blog together, especially the footer widgets, and we can’t afford to loose the info we had there just because you decided to change. I thank you for all the work and help you give us, but this is not doing my work easier.
