Front page keeps scrolling

    Sometimes after editing the appearance of the theme and previewing, the bottom of the front page shows a list of page numbers where you can move to “older” or “newer.” This is the appearance we prefer for our site. However, once we have hit save and return to the front page, it instead continues to scroll and load more posts. Is there a way to remedy this? Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is themelancholies.wordpress.com.

    Hi – what you’re seeing is called infinite scroll.

    There’s info on infinite scroll here (including how to disable it): http://en.support.wordpress.com/infinite-scroll/

    I copied the relevant part from the docs below:

    Our stats show that people are reading more posts when Infinite Scroll is enabled, so we hope you enjoy it as a feature! However, you can turn it on or off any time by unchecking the “Scroll Infinitely” option on your Settings → Reading page. Additionally, adding a footer widget will also disable the Infinite Scroll option.
