Or at least turn off the feature that says how many followers you have? The blog I need help with is daredreamermag.com. September 30, 2011 at 5:12 pm #718012 timethiefMember Yes. You can deactivate the number of subscribers/followers by opening the Blog subscriptions widget and using the setting there. See also > I don’t like it. How can I turn it off on my blog? Easy. Go to your Dashboard. Click on Settings, then Reading, then Email. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/09/21/more-traffic-for-your-blog-with-the-follow-button/ October 26, 2011 at 9:43 pm #718170 midwaysurfMember Setting aside the Subscribe widget, and liking the Follow tab a lot, is it possible to give a link (eg a graphic button) the same function as clicking the follow tab? Clicking that graphic button would make the Follow tab rise up and be ready for orders. Why? An @ button could go by our t and f buttons at midwaysurf.com – and the directing text beneath them could go. Thanks.

Before putting it forward as a change I’d prefer to see whether there are easy arguments for or against that I haven’t thought of.
