I recommend wpbtips for anyone wanting to tweak their WordPress.com blog.
In the link above, the author of wpbtips shows how to disable infinite scrolling without having to buy a CSS upgrade or custom domain.
If your theme supports it, all you have to do is to drag a widget (any widget) into your footer area. That will disable automatic infinite scrolling.
I did it with the theme I am currently using – Origin by DevPress – and I will keep it there for the time being and see whether I like my readers being saved from being cast into the infinite scroll.
Did you catch the WordPress post about how you can now have your own flavour of Adwords by signing up for WordAds?
I thought it might be a solution to the problem of visitors seeing the ugly ads that now populate this site and many other WordPress.com sites (courtesy of the team at Automattic).
But it was not to be. I went to the WordAds intro page and from their to the Apply page and was presented with a list of my WP.com blogs and this message:
To be eligible for this program, your blog needs to have a custom domain.
WORDADS and WordAds
This theme turns lower case text in the titles of posts into upper case text. It does it automatically – I type Hello or hello and it displays HELLO.
So now I see that WORDADS doesn’t come across as spiffily as WordAds. In upper case I see the word DADS rather than ADS.
Do you see it that way too?
Some people may mistake the above for a rant…
