    Is there a way to turn off the follow tab at the bottom of each blog (the ones that non-WP.com users see). Or at least turn off the feature that says how many followers you have?

    The blog I need help with is daredreamermag.com.

    Yes. You can deactivate the number of subscribers/followers by opening the Blog subscriptions widget and using the setting there.

    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.

    If you would like to suggest that to Staff you can do so by posting a thread into the Ideas Forum. > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/forum/ideas#postform

    Thanks tt I’ll take that as a ‘no’.

    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.

    They will be off-topic in this thread as this thread is for instructions for Turning off Follow tab.

    Right I see that. I had thought it pretty close.
