    I really expected SOME sort of staff comment by now.

    #819280

    Agree, I would really like the option to turn this feature off.

    Would love to have the ability to turn this feature off, please (Twenty Ten theme).

    PS. I think you can get around it by adding:

    .infinite-scroll #footer {
    display:none;
    }

    to the CSS.

    But it only takes away the footer, it doesn’t actually stop the finite scrolling.

    Please remove this “feature.” Who asked for this? As the above comments note, some actually use the footer area for design and navigation purposes. Please give us the option to opt out.

    It would be appreciated if WordPress staff could let us all know if there is a plan to allow an opt-out for this feature ideally before I have to waste time in getting a new theme sorted out.

    Shameless copy of this feature from Slashdot BTW.

    Some people love endless scrolling, but I personally hate this a lot. Please make it optional? I don’t wanna change my theme again after I settled down with this simple theme.

    #819287

    I think that it’s a very unprofessional attitude to do such changes without previous announcement and without an option to not use them. Why not just put this in a new template?

    There are may customizations that are lost.

    Please, go back,

    My only hope is that the developers don’t get so attached to their own self-proclaimed neat feature and efforts that they end up forcing it upon all those using the themes, and claim that we’ll learn to like it and see its uses. Because I don’t think I, for one, will.

    I think some might like it, but I know many, who for sure don’t.

    So, here is another cry for an opt-out.

    Infinite scroll is not even working on my Twenty Eleven site; there is no way to navigate to my previous posts, and my footer is gone. I’m very upset about this.

    #819292

    This needs turning off, or having an opt out.

    And – WordPress – we need responses, not a sticky post!

    You know – I really wish that this was optional. Because I really like to control the look of my homepage, so I want to have only a specified number of blog posts to show on it at any given time. I had been using the settings area in order to specify the number of posts to show on my homepage, but now it is useless – the default setting, due to this change you have made, is to have ALL posts ever written showing on the homepage. So really what has happened is you have removed an option from us, rather than improving the design.

    Please make this optional, or remove it. Thanks!

    “We love positive and productive discussions, so please keep comments on the topics at hand and not on other members of the community. Thanks!”

    ~You’re not discussing, WordPress. SAY SOMETHING. I’ve worked really hard on my blog to make it the way I like it, was literally a day away from signing up for a pro membership to further enhance it, and then this was implemented – at the moment, I don’t have the heart to even post. This has really, REALLY taken away from the quality of my page.

    I’ve only just starting using WordPress, but it seems pretty clear to me that this feature should be optional.

    Have the same problem on blog based at twenty ten.

    Please, remove it.

    #819297

    Don’t like this. Please have this as optional. The home page is the first landing page and as most folks have said here, we want full control on what to display on the home page.

    Please listen to your customers and act fast.

    So, this time we got infinite trolling from WordPress :D

    This ‘feature’ may be *cool*… But it breaks my blog :(

    The footer area, where all my widgets are, is now completely inaccessible!

    This change should have never been rolled out as it currently is, because it breaks the footer.

    These steps got skipped when this was rolled out (IMHO):
    a) It should have been made optional (and disabled by default).
    b) There should have been an accommodation made for the footer area widgets to still be accessible, — even when ‘enabled’ at the very least with a sliding panel or w/e.

    Thanks for the continued feature enrichment, but please don’t break backwards compatibility!

    my 2 bits.

    Now I’m forced to use a left/right-sidebar area for my widgets, which doesn’t look nice imho.

    sorry for the dbl post, I just noticed this in the comment by mannerofspeaking:

    9. The change has messed up the statistics for views on the home page.

    That’s an even worse issue than the missing footer area!… indeed my stats are now inflated :(

    You either have to turn this off this “feature” or totally disable it. Immediately.

    Please stop making unilateral changes to our themes without asking or providing an opt out option. We have a series of bottom widgets that is one of our MOST POPULAR features. We spent LOTS of cash to customize our theme and I am really tired of having you guys “improve” it– causing me to have to frantically contact my IT person… And then pay him to “fix” your “improvements” again.

    It’s creepy to spend all this money and then have a company come in and CHANGE THE ENTIRE LOOK of your site WITHOUT ASKING YOU IF YOU EVEN WANT IT.

    Please TURN IT OFF NOW– or provide that opt out button. We are in the process of a launching a new novel on MONDAY 2.13.12 and our site looks like Atotal mess!

    PLEASE HELP!
